Eternal Medicine for Perpetual Health and Wealth
Joshua 1:8 (KJB) 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.
Imagine a man being so familiar with the very words of God in ancient times that His commandments and laws easily rolled off the tongue to affect a man’s life in any situation. Obedience and spiritual maturity at work in a person’s life is only possible through careful study and deliberate application of God’s message.
Personally choosing to apply God’s message and direction is the key to perpetual health and wealth lasting forever. It is the spiritual antidote for the sin and wickedness at work in this world.
Today, with having readily available the very Words of God collected and chronicled in His Word, a godly spiritual life is plausible, possible, and spiritually profitable. Knowing God’s Word inside and out should be an attainable goal working inside the heart and mind of every child of God.
In the times in which Joshua lived perhaps there were words and commandments of God to be heard in places of worship being read from recording penned by scribes onto scrolls. Priests may have had access to some written words, but the common man most often had to rely on hearing the words of God through the reciting of others.
There are many instances today, and as recorded in biblical times, of people who did not bother to digest or memorize the words of God or allow them to work in their life. Spiritual profit and success cannot be found outside of both hearing and personally committing to obey God’s Word.
