Most children have dreams of what they will become when they grow up. They may dream about being a parent, owning a car and having an important job. They see success as something that will make them happy every day.

But success is not something that just happens or that makes us happy — it is a process. In our Bible Reading today, we see that Joshua knew that success was based on learning about God and living for Him. Joshua had learned that he had to know God’s Word and obey it in order to be successful. “Always remember what is written in that book of law. Speak about that book and study it day and night. Then you can be sure to obey what is written there. If you do all this, you will be wise and successful in everything you do” (verse 8).

Do you want to have success in your life? Be like Joshua. Study and learn God’s Word. Depend on it to lead you every day!
