KEY SCRIPTURE: Joshua 1:8 KJV 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.

It is the wish of all to ‘have a prosperous new year’. Our key scripture shows us how to have a prosperous life. The following are the steps He has listed;

1. Do not let the book of the law depart from your mouth.

2. You shall meditate or mutter the word, day and night.

3. Observe to do according to all that is written in it.

Then you shall make your way prosperous

Prospering is not God’s duty, but man’s responsibility as we apply God’s principles. He said this book of the law shall not depart from your mouth. Our mouths are not given to us to only eat. In actual fact, eating is a very secondary role of our mouth. The book of James chapter 3 shows us, that our mouths are to chart the course of our lives. The Greek word for mouth is STOMA. It means, the edge of a weapon. The immediate weapon that comes to mind with an edge is a sword or a knife. Our mouths are basically given to us to make war. To make a way in our path in life by cutting down every opposition, enemy, or resistance. We must always choose the right words to say. God’s words in our mouths are

1. The sword of the Spirit. Eph 6:16

2. The seeds that are planted as we say it. Mark 4:15.

3. The hammer to break down difficult situations’ 23:29

4. Fire to burn all that is unwanted. Jer 23:29

5. Light to lead us. Ps 119: 105

There are more revelations about the word of God. As we speak the word we are engaging these elements to act for us according to the need of the moment.

The next instruction of scripture says we must keep meditating on the scripture. The word meditate is the Hebrew word’ hagah’, which could be interpreted as mutter, murmur, speak, roar, etc. The word used in our key scripture is to mutter. Muttering is to keep repeating the word undertone. If the condition needs a sword to cut or strikethrough, then muttering it over and over again, would eventually cut down whatever opposition it is. If it is a spiritual wall that must be broken down, then the word will be a hammer, if muttered over a period would ultimately dismantle that wall. Muttering God’s word every day would surely correct a lot of issues for us.

The next is to do according to what the word says. Make sure you do not act contrary to the word. In this way, you would make your way prosperous. Make a decision to make your way prosperous by practicing the word daily throughout the year.


God’s word is His success notes that he has given us to apply and succeed, in this life. I diligently follow its dictates to win every contest in this life. My mouth is the means by which I use the word against every opposition.



1Ti 4:15 KJV” Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.”

Rom 12:2 KJV” And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
