“Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” ~ Joshua 1:8-9 NIV
Good afternoon my beautiful brothers and sisters in Christ! I pray that your Monday morning has been successful already. I pray that your mind has remained focus on the things above and not things that our human eye sights can see here on earth. I pray that whatever has tried to distract you already has fled from your mind, heart, and soul. I pray that you woke up with a fearless soul to just conquer this moment. To conquer this exact minute, the next 5 minutes, the next hours, days, and months. Remember who has the power and the authority to make the enemy bow down!
“Be STRONG and COURAGEOUS” said the Lord! “DO NOT BE AFRAID NOR GET DISCOURAGED”, warned the Lord. “FOR HE IS WITH US WHEREVER WE GO”. Isn’t that all so amazing to know? Do you know all the promises that the Lord has send toward your life? Well these are just a couple of them. Why fear when the Lord is always with us. He is always ahead of us clearing the way for us to walk through with less complication. Ready; all we need to do is mediate on the word day and night. We need to keep the Law and apply them. It’s easier said than done, but you take your leap of faith and God will handle the rest.
If you want to be successful today and accomplish any of your deep desires, you need to change your mindset. You need to understand that you can only live in this moment and remain focus on the right now. Don’t overwhelm yourself with long goals, but start with small ones. It can be as simple as just keeping a smile on today. It can be to say God bless to anyone that comes to you. Start small. The Lord remains us in Ecclesiastes 3:1, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:”. Stop looking at your time and start looking at the creator of time. When you start looking at the one who created time, you will see that there is more than enough hours to get things done today.
Everyone has gotten stuck on rushing through everything. I encourage you to breathe in and enjoy this moment. When you give yourself a second to enjoy every step, you will be more grateful when you achieve your goals/missions. Don’t be like these people who are always in a rush. Have you notice those that are always in a rush never get any where. They focus too much on looking at the clock and freaking out, than working. Don’t be like the Israelites! Don’t make your 11 day journey into a 40 year journey. Don’t live in the wilderness of your mind, and use the map that the Lord has designed for all of us. He’s our compass! Let Him guide you!
