A daily dose of His Word and time with Him, makes a huge difference in the way your life unfolds. Following hard after Him brings a peace into your world and calms the choppy seas.
August's Message, Day 1:
“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. 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. 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.” Joshua 1:7-9 NIV
It's truly amazing what blessings pour forth from heaven if we are just obedient to His Word and to His ways. He does ask us to follow hard after Him, knowing His Word and pondering it often, and diligently doing what He asks. It takes effort, but the benefits are numerous. Prosperity and success is within our reach, and we can be strong and courageous in Him, without fear, and without discouragement, because the Lord our God is with us wherever we go. Nice perk. If you're struggling a bit with the events and direction of your life, getting to know Him and His Word just a little bit better goes a long way to clearer sailing ahead.
