In Joshua 1:8 the Lord tells us that if we do not let the Book of the Law depart from our mouth, meditate on it day and night, and becareful to do everything in it, then we will be Prosperous and Successful in all our ways.
It continues to say up to four different times that we should be strong and courageous.
According to the Hebrew alphabet, the number 4 is represented by Dalet, which is illustrated as an open door.
Knowing this allows us to understand that we will have an open pathway in all we do if we keep to those words.
I believe that being strong and courageous is a by-product of keeping to these 3 principals i.e.
- Continually speaking the Word of God, confessing the word with our mouth.
- Continually meditating on the Word of God, that being believing in your heart and continually seeking insight and revelation from Holy Spirit about the Word of God.
- Continually acting on the word and going through life with reliance upon the Word as it is the truth and that is done by faith, or simple belief and trust.
Doing these 3 things will allow us to be successful and prosperous whilst gaining strength and courage from the Lord.
When the Lord speaks a command He also provides the grace for impartation.
In Joshua 1:9 we see the Lord question Joshua – Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.
When the Lord said ‘let their be light’, there was light.
These are not suggestions or merely an instruction but the creation of substance from nothing.
Even though it was an instruction to Joshua I fully believe that is was also an impartation from God.
God will never instruct us to do something without supplying sufficient grace for the task.
We should remember that if we desire to be prosperous and successful, we need to do more than just act on the above three principals, we need to also receive listen for the authoritative word of impartation from our Heavenly Creator.
