Read Joshua 1:1-8
“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.”
Joshua 1:8 (KJV)
An obedient child always wins the heart of his/her parents. When you have two kids – one obeys your commands, the other doesn’t you respond to the needs of the obedient child quicker than the other one. There are times you may even buy him things he didn’t even ask for. The reason is that he pleases you by obeying your commands; always available whenever you need him.
Our heavenly father promised to do so much more for us if only we obey His commands – His word.
Joshua was commanded not to leave or abandon the word of God but rather spend time to continuously read and reflect on His instructions making sure to obey and do all that is written therein.
Basically God is telling us to meditate on His word and do all that is in it if we really want to be successful. A habit of meditation and seriously pondering on the word of God gives you a great reward of success and prosperity. Psalm 19:11 indicates that there is great reward in obeying His law.
His word is the way out of every situation so the more time you spend on His word the more you’ll see the benefits in your daily life. It is the price you have to pay for a successful and prosperous life
As women we have so much activities in our daily lives especially new moms & single moms but I encourage you to constantly make time for God and His word.
Thank you heavenly father for revealing your truth to me. Help me to always give you the best of my time. Grant me the grace to always meditate and obey your word.
Thought for the Day
Prosperity and success is found in the word of God.
A life of Meditation, obedient to His word and living according to His word.
