7 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. 8 Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; 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. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." -Joshua 1:7-9 (emphasis added)

These verses are so good! I really like verse 8. Where it says not to let the Book of the Law depart from our mouths but meditate on it day and night. That's something that we are really need to think about. We need to be memorizing and meditating on God's word! You can learn about God at church and Sunday school but in order to really know Him you have to spend time getting to know Him. And what better way to do that than to read the letter He has written to us, the Bible. Ask God to reveal Himself to you so that you can really understand who He is and what He has done for you. Also, I just want to mention, that you can be a saved by God's grace. But it's an entirely different thing to make Him Lord of your life. So I want you to think about your life today. Have you made Jesus Lord and master over your life? That's is something really difficult for us to do because we are selfish prideful people. But in order to have a strong relationship with God we have to make Him Lord and Master along with Savior.

In Christ,
