Today’s Reading: Joshua 1
Key Verse: 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 will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Today, “You will make your way prosperous,” and “You will have good success.” How can I predict this with confidence? The answer is that you are faithfully participating with iDisciple. You are confessing God’s Word with your mouth. You are meditating consistently on what you read. And you are practicing what you are learning. Yes? Yes!
Four times in our reading the Lord says, ” Be strong and of good courage.” Could we agree that God wants to get through with this message? Yes? And yes, again! If we could listen in on God’s conversation with Joshua, we might observe other ways that God emphasizes His message, but for us His way is to repeat Himself. May I suggest that all of us repeat 4X these words out loud if possible, “Be strong and of good courage!”
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord God, grant that Your Word will permeate my being. May Truth fill every cell of my body, even more than the breath in my lungs or the blood in my veins. I pray this prayer with fervency, and in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
My son was recently in the Middle East, taking photos that I use in my daily online blogs. While in Jerusalem, he was driven around by a pastor in a Palestinian Authority car so that they could enter the Palestinian Authority. Israeli cars cannot enter that territory. One of the locations he photographed was the ancient site of Jericho, made famous by Joshua’s first victory in the Promised Land. I prayed for my son daily. As he walked where Joshua and the Children of Israel marched, I asked the Lord to help him “be strong and of good courage.”
