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)
That ending part which say “and then you will have good success,” doesn’t really convey to us what “Good Success” is. The Hebrew actually means to be made wise. This is what Jesus talks about when He says, “whoever follows me shall never walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” John talking about this says “in Him was life and the life was the light of men.”
In other words, just as light from the sun helps the natural eyes to see things clearly on the natural level, to see the road clearly, notice the dangers around and about, plot a proper course through his environment, etc. In the same manner, the word of God sharpens your sixth sense, helps you to see things clearly on the spiritual level, know exactly what you need to do about everything, notice the dangers round and about you, ones that your physical senses and scientific projections cannot see, plot a proper course through life, etc on an existential level.
Joshua 1:8 tells us that the way to access this kind of light is through meditation in the word. Meditation digs through the layers of darkness, bringing us closer and closer to the light so we can see more and more. It gradually but decisively helps us overcome our ignorance and the lying vanities we’ve been captive to, helping us take the necessary steps, make the needed changes in our life, imbibe new thinking, terminate this and that from our life, etc, all the while making our belief in the word stronger and stronger until we come to that place of manifestation.
Meditate on this scripture in light of this conversation, we will continue tomorrow.
“But the path of the just is like the shining sun, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked is like darkness; They do not know what makes them stumble. My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life. (Proverbs 4:18-23 NKJV)”
YOU ARE CHRIST.
