KEY SCRIPTURE: Joshua 1:8 ” This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success”.
I saw written on one of the public transports in Accra, “who knows tomorrow?” Many people talk about the uncertainties of the future and are therefore very apprehensive and fearful of what it holds.
Our key scripture tells us that we can make our way prosperous and have good success. It is all about walking in the word of God or walking with the word of God. In the key scripture he says the word of God shall not depart from our mouth; but we shall meditate or say it to ourselves day and night, that we may observe to do according to all that is written therein, then shall we make our way prosperous and have good success. Our mouth place a big part in making things turn out good for our good. He says we shall meditate on the word of God day and night. The word meditate means mutter, say, muse, moan, utter or roar.
Your mouth in the Greek is stoma. It means the edge of a weapon. The word of God in your mouth is a weapon ready to cause havoc to the enemy or, an instrument to create that which is not there. We must speak the scriptures to ourselves to build our faith as well. Declaring the word is a form of making war with the word of God. Demons cannot stand the declaration of the scriptures in challenging times. Our key scripture says you do it night and day.
The next part of our key scripture says we must observe to do all that is written therein. Doing the word is bringing the will of God to pass. Proverbs 4:18 says, the path of the just is as a shining light that shineth brighter and brighter unto the perfect day”. You can’t err acting on the word of God. Indeed you would make things turn out good by doing what God’s word says. The Lord Jesus said the man who obeys his word is like the man who builds his house on a rock. This house is strong and firm, able to withstand all forms of adversities. Your life through the word is a stable life that will always conquer every opposition that may arise against you. You would make your way prosperous and you would have good success.
Make the year a good one as you move and act on the word of God. The word would make you joyful, faithful, confident, wise and acceptable and humble. These are qualities that would surely make for good relationships and would expand your sphere of opportunities.
I declare God’s word daily to myself and the Spirit of God works in my life to produce the results and effect of the word. I am more than a conqueror.
Psalms 1:1-3 “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper”.
