Joshua 1:8– “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe 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.”
My friends, listen, do you realize that when you prayed and asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart you lost it all whether you know it or not? The Bible says we’ve been bought with a price, we are no longer our own. We’ve been stamped by God, and all that we are now belongs to Him. The Holy Spirit has sealed us in Christ, and He is affecting our mind, will, and emotions in our soul and even our body. He has energized us, and He causes us to shine because our lamp has been lit by the Holy Spirit. He has gifted us in such a way to serve, and we can be diligent in our service if we don’t get passive. But, my friends, if we see ourselves lagging behind, we need to turn around and begin relying on God once again. We need to make up our minds who we are going to serve, God or this world? Like Joshua, we must observe to do according to all that is written in God’s Word and then our way will be prosperous and we will have good success.
