This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. (Joshua 1:8 NKJV)
To advance in life one must match the events and points of interaction between ones life and the world with the word of God. It can be likened to a gear mechanism. The master gear is the word of God and it is linked to the advancement of our lives on earth. Their teeth are the points of interaction between our choices or actions and the stimuli of life. When life happens, how we respond produces a consequence that that we call destiny. The contact point between our actions or choices and the world we live in must be the word of God in order for progress to be made in our lives towards our divine destiny.
Joshua 1:8 teaches we must not stop filling ourselves and imbibing the word of God into our hearts, we must keep meditating on the word, pondering over it in our hearts and continually have it on our lips. It teaches that by doing this we will be vigilant and alert to recognise how to respond to life according to the word of God at every point. This is how progress is made in life.
It says you will make your way prosperous. In the original Hebrew translation, that scripture literally means that you will push your course of action or way of life forward. This is the same truth we observe in every aspect of God’s creation; to increase anything simply add more of it to it. To increase the amount of sand in a bucket just add more sand, to cause the level of water in a tank to rise pour in more water, and to access more of the things or places or realities that have not yet become physically real simply add more of the word of God.
For we know that by the word the things that we see were made from the things we do not see. For God calls the things that be not as though they were, by His word. Folks, the thing which the bible contain is not a history narrative, it’s not a popular story, it’s not a classical writing and God help us it’s not even a religious code, it’s the source code of reality, it contains the future you have yet to see, only if you live it, it will deliver the future, your destiny to you. One of my earthly teachers, Chris Oyhakilome will say, all things that you need in life are wrapped up in the word, GO FOR THE WORD! I encourage you, when you find it, eat it and digest it and use it to move your destiny forward.
YOU ARE CHRIST.
