Joshua 1:7-9

7 Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. 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. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

    The part in verse 9 when it says “Do not be afraid” caught my eye, it reminded me of a time a few months ago when I was finally putting something in my gamer profile on an online game. The one sentence that a new made friend said to me about it helped me to continue doing it, I was afraid to do it at first, and I still am afraid, but this verse has helped me to know not to be afraid, it was what I needed to have.

    When reading these passages, I love to look up definitions of the words that stand out to me. When the passage says “be strong and very courageous” it translates into: “be brave, feeling or showing no fear, the ability to do something you know is difficult or dangerous, withstanding danger”. Then He goes on to say read the word, do what it says and be prosperous. NOT everything will then be easy, but boy will it be worth it. What an encouraging passage this week!

    As I have been pondering Joshua 1:7-9 this week, the centrality of God’s word & carefully following His ways stood out as the KEY to success by God’s standards! And it won’t/can’t happen accidentally, because phrases like this are all over in this passage: “be careful to obey all…always on your lips…meditate on it day and night.” God’s ways require intentionality – but His rewards are abundant!
