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.
I love recalling the day I stood in my driveway waving to my daughter Courtney and her children as they got ready to drive to the Navy base at Pearl Harbor. Courtney was meeting her husband to finalize their move to Hawaii. It was a beautiful day, and we’d all just witnessed a double rainbow! That incredible sight and the fact that my daughter was happily following her Navy husband as he pursued his career made me happy too. Why? Because Courtney, in her sometimes difficult roles of being a wife to a submariner and the mother of five children, chose to follow God with all her heart. That’s the key to success.
God is also asking you to follow Him wherever you are in life and in whatever you are facing. How can you be successful in following Him through the many opportunities He gives you to serve and help others? Start by reading and meditating on Joshua 1:8. God is showing you a key way to success–His kind of success!
