Success for God's people is from no other source but from God alone, its not by might, power or influence, rather its only by abiding in the precious Word of the Lord God.
" 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. " Joshua 1:8 (NKJV)
Joshua had a herculean task and a vast majority of people to lead to the promised land, he had been assisting Moses faithfully until now, however now he has been asked to take command, yet with what seems to be a big responsibility, the Lord also provides him with a way to handle this, by meditating on the Word.
How could meditating the Word make a good leader of you? would not good leadership lessons and biographies of successful people help more in this?
God knows the best, meditating on the Word would not only change Joshua, it will also teach him how to handle different situations, it would instill the promises of the Lord in his heart and mind and he will be more powerful than ever.
We all need this, we all need to meditate on the Word of the Lord and be blessed.
We find time for so many other things, for TV and other amusements, yet The precious Word of God is often left out and we see the consequences of this, the chaotic world, the puzzled new generation, the violence and crime increasing daily.
What can save, Who can lead us out of this pathetic situation? We need to go back to Joshua 1:8, we need to apply in our life what God told Joshua, we need to experience the real success than comes only through the Lord God.
Nothing can replace God and His precious Word in our life, we need Him every day, every hour and every moment of our life.
