“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.” Joshua 1:8-9 (Joshua 1:1-18)
We all want to prosper and have good success. Our gracious God also wants this for His people and gives us an unbreakable promise to deliver it! The key to laying hold of this blessing is saturating our minds and hearts with His Word and living a life of obedience to it. This was true for Joshua in his circumstances and it is still true for us today in ours. Let us feast on the full revelation of God and hunger and thirst for righteousness (Matt 5:6). He is good and He is with you!
