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 the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. 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 success. Joshua 1:7-8

Even the Lord, our God, the Creator does nothing except by the WORD. For instance, He accomplished the entire works of creation only by His Word (Heb. 11:3). He sustains everything He has done only by His powerful Word (Heb. 1:3). He has magnified His Word above His name (Psalm 138:2 ) and He is the Word (John 1:1).

Likewise, the Lord says your success and prosperity in whatsoever you do, wherever you go come only when you are very careful, strong and courageous to observe, meditate constantly and obey everything He has commanded you in His Word.

In other words, your ALTITUDE in life is the function of your ATTITUDE to the WORD of GOD. Your PERFORMANCE in life is also determined by your OBSERVANCE of the word of God. In the same way, your spiritual standard of living namely, victory and dominion over sins, over the godless world system, over the corrupt sinful nature, over satanic forces, over premature death is determined by your obedience to God’s word.

Likewise, your entrance into eternal rest after your pilgrimage on earth will come only when you make God’s Word your standard for living.

Know this as well, every other thing will fail and fade away except the eternal Word of God and those who care to observe and obey it will live forever. So, I pray the Lord to help you from this day forward to cultivate abandoned devotion for Jesus and His Powerful Word which can build you up and give you an inheritance among them which are sanctified. Good morning and do have a blessed day.

Your brother,
