Scripture: Joshua 1:8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. THEN you will be prosperous and successful. (NIV)
Observation: Some people want God to make them prosperous and successful before they do their part. But the requirement comes before the reward!
Application: God’s Word must be a part of my daily conversation and my living. I should think about it often during the day. People who know me should know the importance of God’s Word in my life. They should know that my decisions are often determined by my understanding of God’s Word. The Bible helps me determine what is permitted and what is prohibited. Obedience to God’s Word builds my faith.
Prayer: Lord, when I am faithful to do my part, I know I can count on you to keep your word and do your part! Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
