Do you want to be prosperous?
God tells us exactly how to do this as we begin reading the book of Joshua.
Here is our one direction for achieving success and prosperity:
Be careful to obey God –
- do not turn from him to the right or the left.
- keep God’s words always on our lips, meditate on them day and night so we are careful to do them.
What does it look like in my life when I obey God?
It has to be about what God wants, not what I want.
When I do what God wants and it’s not something I want, then I am submitting.
As we grow closer to God, we become more aligned with what God wants and obeying becomes a little easier because we start to want more and more of the things God wants.
Meditating on God’s word has become easier for me as I memorize it. We have to be thinking about it, repeating it and going over it several times daily in order for it to stick. Lots of meditating on it going on!
And with God’s truth stuck in our minds – renewing our thoughts – we are well on our journey of increasing our obedience.
As we memorize God’s scripture, his words are always on our lips – transforming the things we say with those lips.
This is success.
This is prosperity.
Thank you, Abba Father.
