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”.
God’s word is man’s manual for living. It shows us what to do to please the Father. Now note this, whatever that pleases the Father, is our victory. Our blessing and our success. The Bible is a success book, success God’s way.
One of such revelations for success in the Bible is our key scripture 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 shall make your way prosperous and then, you shall have good success.
A prosperous man is a free man. Kings are free people, God’s word shows us from this verse how to be prosperous and have a good success.
The Bible said, this book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night. The word used for meditate in this verse is the Hebrew word “Hagah”. This word means moan, growl, utter, muse, and mutter, meditate, speak and roar. It means to ponder over the word by speaking it to yourself. This would build the attitude of a winner into you and bring whatever the word says to pass.. Proverb 15:4 teaches us that “a wholesome tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness is a breach in the spirit”. What is a wholesome tongue? The one that speaks or declares the word of God.
The Bible instructs that we must not let the word depart from our mouth. This means we must not say something else. Any other word, other than the word of God is unwholesome. It is perverseness, and it is a breach in the spirit. A breach is a fracture, a break, a ruin or shattering,. When we say what we are seeing and feeling instead of what the word says, is called perverseness. This is an error in the spirit, and the results would be definitely wrong or bad.
Keep saying the scriptures day and night. If a sinful attitude and lifestyle wants to take over you, you must not say I am a sinner rather, you say I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. (2nd Corinth 5:21) Say it day and night, then do as the word says. Do this for any condition you want to change. The word of God on your tongue, coming out with faith in your heart is just like God speaking those words..
As you keep declaring the truth, Jesus the high priest of our confession (Heb 3:1) would communicate to the Father on your behalf, who would dispatch angels for your assistance.(Heb 1:14)
My mouth would declare only what the word says. Our Lord Jesus who is the High Priest of my confession, honours every word which is in line with His word. In this way, I make my way prosperous and I have good success.
Hebrews 3:1 “Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus”;
James 3:2 “For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body”.
