Meditate and other 3d words around an open door to a blue cloudy sky including reflect, inner peace, focus, relax, ponder and concentrate. 2 Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel. 3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. 4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast. 6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. 7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest. As you know, in this series of messages, we are looking at the 7 keys to living the God-blessed life.
So far, we have looked at the topics of trusting God from the life of Abraham, loving God from the life of the apostle John, and fearing God from the life of Job. As we look at our passage today, we find that Joshua is at a point of major transition in his life.
As the leader of the nation of Israel, Joshua was replacing Moses as the nation’s spiritual guide.
Our culture has influenced the majority of people to believe that they have a right to say what is on their mind.
It is said that one of the reasons Martin Luther came to his great discovery of justification by faith alone is because, in his early years in a monastery, he was influenced to love Scripture.
So, we see that in meditating on God’s word, the mouth is involved and the mind is involved.
In recent years, we have seen various reports on issues such as young people leaving the church and people saying that they no longer want to be associated with the church.


The world needs to see the word of God in motion, and they can only see that if the people of God are actively obeying the word of God.
God promises Joshua that he will have numerous blessings if he meditates on God’s word. I want to make clear again, as I did on last week, that the God-blessed life is not necessarily referring to material possessions and money. Today, we are going to look at the topic of meditating on the Word of God from the life of Joshua. Moses, the leader of Israel, is dead, and Joshua has been called up to lead the children of Israel into the Promised Land. God affirms him as the new leader, encourages him, and gives him instructions as to what to do next. One of the last things Moses did before he died was to gather the children of Israel together and repeat in their hearing all of the laws which God had given them since they left Egypt. This would require that he study the word of God, that he spend time with the word of God, and that he commit portions of the word of God to memory. If I had to choose between all the disciplines of the spiritual life, I would choose Bible memorization, because it is a fundamental way of filling our minds with what it needs.
Luther faithfully read the Bible during a time when people earned doctor of theology degrees without even reading the Bible. As the leader of the children of Israel, Joshua was to set an example of obedience before them. Part of the reason for this is because many people in the world hear the church preach the word of God, but don’t see the people of God doing the word of God. Joshua 1:8 (ESV)Thoughts on Today’s VerseAll scripture is the Word of God and Joshua was an example of a godly man who both believed God’s word and acted upon it. Rather, the God-blessed life, is a life that is content, joyful, fulfilled, peaceful, and productive.


He also promises Joshua that he will have great success in his role as a leader — based on one condition. So, today, we have any number of people expressing dozens of different opinions on a single issue. Joshua is commanded to use His mouth to speak God’s words and keep the focus of the children of Israel in the right place.
Not only does God want Joshua to speak His words to the people of Israel, but he is to keep God’s words in his mind at all times. Luther knew so much of the Bible from memory that when the Lord opened his eyes to see the truth of justification in Romans 1:17, he said, “Thereupon I ran through the Scriptures from memory,” in order to confirm what he had found. It would have been hypocritical of him to go around speaking God’s word and not obeying it himself. The devil wants to fill your mind with thoughts that are depressing, negative, unspiritual, and ungodly. We should study God’s Book of instruction – particularly those passages that relate specifically to the Church – and we should continually feed on His Word in our hearts by faith with thanksgiving.
We should meditate on His word, memorise His Word, trust His Word and love His Word – And we should be sure to obey His Word and apply His Word in our daily lives – for in so doing we will certainly prosper and succeed in all we do – to His praise and glory.My PrayerLoving Lord, thank You for Your Word – for the Scriptures.
The Greatest Who is a God like You, who pardons iniquity And passes over the rebellious act of the remnant of His possession?
