Meditate Day & Night

Joshua 1:7 Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.8 Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
Courageous living is not difficult if we can follow the plan. Joshua had a big project ahead of him...taking a few million people across a swollen river to a land filled with giant grapes! He needed courage. "Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow." (Mary Anne Radmacher)
This week we have seen that courage begins with obedience to God. Thinking straight and speaking out. Today we talk about meditating on that Word. It really means to go over and over it again in your head until it becomes natural...supernatural! To reflect deeply upon what God desires. Then doing what He said! When you get up and when you go to sleep let the things that the Lord says in scripture fill your head. It's the only way we can possibly do what it says!
Once we get with the program and obey Him, keep our head on straight, our language pure and our mind filled with His thoughts THEN we WILL BE prosperous and successful. Don't be afraid, don't be dismayed: be strong and VERY COURAGEOUS!
