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. - Joshua 1:8
So, when we do all that He asks of us - when we are in the Word daily, when we meditate on it and are careful to do according to all that is written in it, that's when He will make our way prosperous.
Many of us struggle to gain freedom over some sin issue in our life...patience, obedience, fear and anxiety, our eating habits, or we struggle to see victory in some trial...our marriage, our children, our finances. Yet, we don't see the connection in this verse to our struggle...or we're choosing to not apply it to our lives.
If we want victory in those areas, we are told here how we are to find the peace we long for - get into His Word daily, return to it throughout the day, meditate on it constantly, and do what it says. When we do that, we will prosper. It's that simple.
He promises in this verse that we will prosper when we follow these instructions. When we struggle in the same place for some time, it should be cause for us to pause and reflect on what this verse is instructing us to do and where we fall short - confessing that sin, and surrendering our schedules and our hearts to Him will surely find us the peace and victory we long for.
Press on ~ you are loved 💗
