Today’s Message For Rhapsody of Realities
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success (Joshua 1:8).
There’s a word l’ll ike you to notice in the opening text. It’s the word, “observe”. Many Bible scholars have had difficulty interpreting it; they’ve wrestled for years with that terminology. To them, it means “that you may understand how to do”, but that’s not it.
The Hebrew word translated observe is “shâmar”, it means to watch for the purpose of doing. It’s like looking out for something so you can do; “copying to do” or “hearing to do”! Following what the Lord told Joshua, if you’d meditate on the Word as you should, you’d be propelled to do what the Word says

Paul alludes to this in Philippians 2:13 when he said, “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” This is akin to what the Lord said to Joshua in the theme verse. Do you want to be successful, prosperous, and deal wisely in in the affairs of life? Do you want to be able to help other people become successful and prosperous? Meditate on the Word, day and night.
Meditating on the Word will give you an understanding, a motivation, and an inspiration to do what God wants you to do. Practice this for at least half an hour every day. Psalm 1:1-3 further tells us the overwhelming blessings this will produce in your life: you’ll be standing firm like a flourishing tree planted by Goď’s design, deeply rooted by the brooks of bliss, bearing fruit in every season of life; never dry, never fainting, but ever blessed and unendingly prosperous. Hallelujah!
As I meditate on the Word, the forces of success, prosperity and divine health are activated in my life; ‘m transformed from glory to glory through the propelling power of the Word! I make progress with giant strides, and my success is evident to all as I deal wisely in the affairs of life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
1 Timothy 4:15
15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.
Joshua 1:8 AMPC
8 This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good [a]success.
- Joshua 1:8 This is the only place in the early English versions where the word “success” is found. The secret of success is given in verses 5 through 9. Joshua accepted Moses’ place of leadership without misgivings. God’s will for him was his will, and he did not hesitate. To go “all out” for God was already habitual with him; it is the unfailing prerequisite of eternal success (Deut. 6:3-5; Ps. 1:1-3; Luke 10:25-28).
Psalm 1:1-3 TPT
What delight comes to the one who follows God’s ways! He won’t walk in step with the wicked, nor share the sinner’s way, nor be found sitting in the scorner’s seat. His passion is to remain true to the Word of “I AM,” meditating day and night on the true revelation of light. He will be standing firm like a flourishing tree planted by God’s design, deeply rooted by the brooks of bliss, bearing fruit in every season of life. He is never dry, never fainting, ever blessed, ever prosperous.
