The Pathway to Success by Joyce Meyer Book Review

About the Book:

The world tells us that having a good job, owning your own business, money, fame, and influence are all important for a successful life. If we don’t have them, we feel like a failure. But even when we achieve them, we still end up unhappy, unfulfilled, or lonely.

God wants us to be successful, but His definition of success is not the same as the world's definition. The truth is, God’s way of achieving the dreams and desires that truly fulfill us and bring genuine joy to our lives is very different—and that is what we need.

In The Pathway to Success, you will discover a deeper understanding of what it means to seek success God's way. Through her practical, relatable insights based on God’s Word, beloved Bible teacher Joyce Meyer reveals how to actively pursue the keys to true, lasting success. Full of rich encouragement and timeless wisdom, The Pathway to Success will allow you to refocus your life and fulfill your God-given destiny as you walk out the purpose He’s planned for you.

My Review:

We want to be successful but God's idea of success is not the same as the world's. Meyer helps us understand what it means to be successful in God's eyes, basing her teaching on the Bible. The Bible not only tells us what success is but also the pathway to that success. That pathway is more about character and integrity than about accomplishments.

Put [God] first at all times, and you will succeed beyond anything you can imagine,” Meyer writes. (58) She helps us understand the importance of our words and thoughts. She encourages us to determine our priorities according to biblical principles and reminds us the necessity of discipline and self-control. Loving others is the number one call on our lives, Meyer writes. Loving others is the most important thing we do. (128)

Meyer shares her own journey to ministry success. She reminds us traveling along the pathway to success will be a long journey. Excellence along the way is a necessity. I highly recommend this book to those desiring to know what success is in God's eyes and how to be on the pathway toward it.

My rating: 5/5 stars.
