Joshua 1:7—8, “Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
According to today’s text, the secret to success is to know God’s Word, speak about it, meditate on it, and, above all, do it. Consider this, during the timeframe that Joshua covers God’s people only had the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible, but that was enough. How blessed we are today to possess all of God’s revelation. Now let’s recognize that it is not enough to possess God’s Word. God’s Word needs to possess us. As we are being daily filled with God’s Word and guided by His Spirit, we will be able to move forward in faith. Believer, in Christ you have all that is needed for victorious Christian living, but you must courageously and consistently move forward by faith one step at a time, and that will only happen as you immerse yourself in God’s Word.
