Today we will be dealing with 20 Bible verses that explain how to be successful. Everyone wants to be successful but only a few people are successful. The vast majority of people don’t understand what it takes to be successful nor do they understand how to be successful. If we don’t understand how it is impossible to accomplish anything.
When searching for the best place to find vivid explanations on how to be successful, the scripture offers countless verses. It is unfortunately amazing that even those that are not believers know and apply many biblical principles of success in their daily business. And that’s why we see many successful people today who are not believers.
We admonish every believer to fully utilize the provisions in the scripture to become successful in life. What is the essence of our Christian faith if we can’t fully leverage the provision in the bible? Whereas, people who are not believers continue to use the same provisions to excel in life.
To help with this, we have curated 20 Bible verses that explain how to be successful.
1. 2 Corinthians 4:8-10

2. Acts 16:6-7

“Then the Spirit came on Amasai, chief of the Thirty, and he said: “We are yours, David! We are with you, son of Jesse! Success, success to you, and success to those who help you, for your God will help you.” So David received them and made them leaders of his raiding bands.
4. Matthew 6:25-30
Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
5. Joshua 1:5-9
No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you.

Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. To draw near to listen is better than to offer the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they are doing evil. Be not rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven and you are on earth. Therefore let your words be few. For a dream comes with much business, and a fool’s voice with many words.
