Joshua was facing the greatest challenge of his life. How could he lead the Children of God to conquer and settle the promised land God had put before them?
God gives Joshua a three-step process for achieving success and prosperity. Although these steps are simple, they will take a lifetime to accomplish.
Keep God’s Word Close
The starting point for success is God’s Word. God’s Word is filled with principles for living. God says, “it shall not depart from your mouth.” This means don’t forget it or allow it to become second place in your life. Keep it in the forefront of your mind and heart.
Meditate on God’s Word
To meditate on God’s Word is to spend time thinking and considering it. Meditating on God’s Word is not sitting in the Lotus position with your eyes closed humming to yourself.

Obey God’s Word

As you discover, meditate, and obey God’s Word, the Holy Spirit is able to lead you through your day. The principles of God’s Word will become part of your thinking and living. As you walk in obedience, God is able to bless you. As you walk in His blessing, you will see new and exciting opportunities arise. You will walk in the favor and blessing of God.
