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.---JOSUE 1:8 Many people keep asking these things:
Yes... The secret of life was already revealed to all of us as written in Josue 1:8
before, i never knew about this because i was totally blinded by the god of this world 1 Cor. 4:3-4--And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. But to those who abide in His Words remain standing firm, whatever storms in life encounter...
The Word of God ( The Holy Bible ) is the manual of our life...it's difficult to use something like a computer if we don't know how to operate it and not reading the manual of it... same as our life... it will be difficult for us to carry our cross in life if we don't know His words and God's promises...in which can be found only in the bible ... That's why we must read it day and night, meditate His words... for God can also speak to us thru His Words.. and God is the Word itself!Jn. 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. So what is the secret of life that remains secret to others?Joshua 1:8 (Amplified Bible) 1. This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night,
2. that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it.
3. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success.
When we stop reading the bible, spiritual dryness comes...
then when here comes the trouble we can easily be defeated..
Today, as my kids watching Barney's show in TV.. which i saw a puppet show about the 3 little pigs who built their houses... I remember the Parable of the Two Builders( Mt. 7:24-27 )Amplified Bible So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them [obeying them] will be like a [a]sensible (prudent, practical, wise) man who built his house upon the rock.
And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.
And everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not do them will be like a stupid (foolish) man who built his house upon the sand.
And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell--and great and complete was the fall of it. Yes.. truly, Oh Lord, i said that moment that You are my great foundation and the center of my life... Without You, Your Words how could i stand firm... upon reading and meditating your Words, You give me strength to overcome everything.. No matter how many wolves will attack me I am very much secure for I choose to be in the best Foundation, inside this house (my heart and my soul)it's YOU that i put at the Center... So we must always read the bible,and meditate His Words..for God is giving us wisdom and knowledge, directing us to the right path.And giving us prosperity in all aspect of life.. preparing us to be a victorious Christian!!!
It is hard to remember to do as we are allowed. We have the gift from Creator to have at our hands the way and the word and the gift of freedom to use it. I have to make a concerted effort to do this and to appreciate these gifts.
I have been floundering since I am alone now. I have been isolating and brooding and weeping and crying out in pain at the woes of society.
To be alive is to have purpose. I need to know my purpose. I can not find Creator's purpose for me w/o the Word in my head and heart.
heavenly father, i pray thee to help me and let me meditate in your word day and night, give me the strength and wisdom to understand your word. father, help me to have the zeal to do your word.

LORD JESUS let me be like a tree planted beside still water, like a house build on a rock
All this i asked through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
