THE 23rd OF MAY
BY LIVING IN GOD’S WILL WE HAVE SUCCESS AND GREAT BLESSINGS
“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.” – Joshua 1:8
God gave the best instructions to Joshua about how to live an abundant life and they are valid for us too. When we study and meditate on God’s Word, our way of thinking changes and so does our speech. Whatever we deposit in our brains, leads our thoughts processes, affects our emotions and is revealed in our speech and actions. We are way more blessed than Joshua was, as we have the whole Bible in a written form, not just the Law, as Joshua had. We also have the grace of God made available through Jesus’ sacrifice.
The more we understand God’s will from studying His Word and we live accordingly, the more successful we will be in what we do. To obey God’s will, it means to do what He likes and follow His directions. By doing so, we can spare ourselves much pain and suffering that would be caused by the failures that come from doing what it seems to be good and right but isn’t. God knows it all and following His directions is the safest, easiest and best way of living our everyday lives.
Thank You so very much dear Lord, for revealing to me Your will and directions through Your Word and by speaking into my heart. I am so thankful for all Your wisdom and wonderful advice You gave me throughout the years. I would not be who I am now, without Your help. Dear Lord, please help me continue to meditate on Your Word, be receptive to Your directions and follow them. All the good in my life is because of Your help and blessings and You are the source of all that I am and have. Praises and glory to Your Holy Name. Amen
