IN HIS PRESENCE
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
The word of God is alive and in order to set your mind on heavenly things you must fill it with God's promises, meditating on His will for your life. God told Joshua that Moses was dead and that he was to lead His people Israel across the Jordan into the land of promise.
Joshua had to be strong in the Lord having been mentored and trained under Moses all those years in the wilderness. Today, however we have generations of young people who don't know the Word and have never been trained by the elders of the church and most of God's mighty men have died out, leaving a new breed of hopeless children wandering through a world that has gone completely off the rails.
The end of all things is at hand as delusion has flooded the earth with its perversion and deceptive practices, murdering the unborn, homosexual and transgender lifestyles becoming the norm, as well as everyone being offended by almost anything and the court of public opinion and social media judging the world, where a man or woman is guilty until proven innocent. This is the time to strengthen ourselves in the Lord, learn His word and disciple all we can until the coming of the Lord.
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, (disheartened) for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:8
