Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:8-9 (NLT)
Wherever You Go
You will be tested. You will face challenges. You will fight battles. You will need courage and strength that you do not have. You will be tempted by fear. You will battle discouragement. Without me you will give into fear and discouragement. Without me you will be weak and cowardly. How can I have your courage and strength? How can I fend off fear and discouragement? How can I win the battles that I will face? How can I be victorious in all the tests and challenges of life?
What have I said to you? What am I commanding you? What have I provided for you? You have given me your word. You have said that you will be with me wherever I go. You have commanded me to be strong and courageous. You have told me to not be afraid or discouraged. You have said that you will give me prosperity and success. You are right about what I have said to you. What must you do if you want to prosper and succeed? What must you do if you want to be strong and courageous? What must you do if you want to keep fear and discouragement far from you? There is something I must do? Yes, there is something you must do. I must believe your word. I must believe that you are with me wherever I go. I must believe that you are with me to help me. That’s right. What else must you do? I must keep your word in my heart and on my mind continually. I must study your word. I must meditate on your word day and night. I must put your word into practice. That’s right.
What will my word do for you? Your word will give me courage and strength. Your word will guard and guide my life. Your word will help me to follow and obey you. Your word will prosper my life and give me good success. Your word will me remind that you are with me wherever I go. Your word will continually remind me that you are with me to help. Will you study my word? Will you meditate on my word day and night? Will you believe my word and put it into practice? Yes Lord, I will.
Lord, your word is continually in my heart and on my mind. It is my delight to meditate on your word day and night. Guard, guide and bless my life with your word. Help me to obey and put your word into practice as I follow you. Amen
