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. – Joshua 1:8
God may speak to us in many ways, but the place we can always go to hear His voice is the Bible.
The “Book” contains God’s thoughts and deeds, and most importantly it tells us everything we need to know about His love and grace. We can read about great things He has done, stories of those who trust Him, and instructions He has given us. It encourages us in special ways. The teachings and conversations of Jesus with His disciples are recorded so that we can continually learn from them. We have the very words of Jesus!
When we follow God’s teachings, He brings prosperity to our lives. This doesn’t mean we all find wealth or never experience difficult times, but rather that all of our needs will be met and our life will be filled with contentment. It means we will accomplish many things as we serve and love Him. His direction and guidance is there as we live each day as His children.
So read the Bible and always keep it “on your lips.” Follow what God teaches. Meditate on the book!
