Joshua 1:7-9
7 “Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. 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. 9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” The Holy Bible, New King James Version, (Nashville, Tennessee: Thomas Nelson, Inc.) 1982.

Most people today are so passive and without passion that they do not seek out the power they need to make it through their problems in life.  The enemy picks up on this weakness and wreaks havoc in their lives because they are passive to the point that they refuse to stand up and say, “Enough!” Passive people do not win in life.  People expect that after they become Christians, everything will just fall from heaven into their laps.  This isn’t the Word of God. Joshua tells us that we become prosperous and successful when we speak God’s Word.  We become successful when we meditate on it day and night, and keep or observe it.  It takes effort to speak, effort to read and study and meditate on the Word of God.  It takes effort to do the Word every day, day in and day out.  But that is what is required if we are going to see the promises of God in our lives.  Ask God to give you passion for His Word and let the enemy know you have had enough by keeping God’s Word on your lips and in your heart every day of your life.

Have a God Day!
