~~Principle: Be strong and take courage...
Sunday, April 21, 2013
Stay focused on completing your mission and you will be prosperous. Do not be afraid; God is with you.
Joshua 1:7-9 "Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayst observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: Turn not from it to the right hand or the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. This book of the law shall not depart out if thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein..."
~~taken from pp. 39-40 of "The Genesis Answer: From Chaos to Kingdom Order in Every Aspect of Your Life" by Susan McCarthy
This speaks to meditating and being obedient to God's word applying the messages to our own lives so we may think in a Kindom-minded way and be transformed.
I have had this book for years, but didn't take the time to focus and read the knowledge emitting from the page's content.
One of my repenting remorseful actions (or lack thereof) is not meditating on God's word more and being silent while He takes the lead and I follow. It is probably so common for us to use Him at our convenience and while things seems fine, we put Him and His word aside because "we've got it" [all under control]. I know I fall short of His glory, but I refuse to shortchange my path to Heaven and be odedient when my Father has made a clear, narrow path.
I must be strong and take courage to follow God's will for my life.
In Jesus name...
