I think it is safe to say, ” we all have times of weak moments.” Times of worry, doubt, and fears.
According to His Word, as children of God, we are to Be Strong and of Good Courage , as He will Never leave or forsake you, If you walk in His Word not turning from the right hand or the left, you can rest in this; you may prosper wherever you go. You ask, ” what and how do I do that? “
In Joshua 1: 8-9 God is letting Joshua know how. ” 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 all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Notice God is saying, “don’t just talk about His Word, don’t just read it out loud to be heard or just reading along.” But, Meditate in it day and night, that you may Live in it. Benefit from it, Grow in it’s Wisdom.
These days so many say, ” the book of the law” of the Old testament does not apply. ” Not so” according to the Word of our Lord, Jesus: Matt. 5:17 “Don’t misunderstand why I have come. I did not come to abolish the law of Moses or the writings of the prophets. No, I came to accomplish their purpose.” He came to show us the benefit and Love found within the book of the law.
There was and IS reason for the book of the Law; As with any Loving Parent God’s Law was given to His children to remind us of who we are & who we Can Be. Revealing what is needed to Live the Good Life God planned for our lives & save us from being led astray into the depths of darkness possible in a reprobate mind. The law is Not written to be used as a ” damnation” tactic but, instead as a guide of His Love, that we not loose site of right and wrong as we walk in the ups and downs of the trials and temptations of the world. The law is Not of No effect but, instead when we meditate on it, all of it, day and night, it is of Great effect ! Each day we grow, see, and experience how “all things do work to the good” for them who Trust in the Lord. So, as His Word says, ” be Strong & Courageous” seeking Him & His Word that you might have a Personal relationship with God the Father, Holy Spirit Mother, and Jesus the Son of God. Seek His Word with All your heart & mind, & body. In this your spirit & His Spirit become One and you will experience Living LIFE with God and walking in all His promises. You, like the children of Israel will be brought over and through any and all trials and temptations that may come your way. In this, like Joshua, you can rise up each day knowing, that you and yours will inherit all God has planned for You, His children who Love and Obey His Word.
Praise God, By experience I can testify His Word and Promises work when you work it.
His Way is The Way & the Light thru all things in this world. It is a fact we can not live All in the Positive nor is there Life all in the Negative. It is also Truth that it takes Both for existence to Live Life fully. Like a tight rope walker, he begins at the beginning and does not turn from right or left but, with confidence, trust, strong, & courageous he steps out walking forward left foot, right foot on a narrow straight path, pulling what is needed as he goes until he reaches his goal;
the other side.
It is our nature to seek and in that seeking we will fall as we learn to walk, and Praise God we do have His Love and Grace thru the teachings of His Word that pick us back up and set us back on The Way until we too reach our goal; ” the other side”
Hugs to all and be of good cheer, we are never Alone.
