{WELCOME TO MEME'S DEVOTION}

[Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.]

JOSHUA 1:7 "Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. 8 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. 9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."

[Do You Want To Be Successful?]

Moses died at the age of 120. His eyes had not dimmed and his strength had not diminished. He had been successful in all he had attempted to do. Although he was not allowed to enter into the promised land, he had successfully led the great nation of Israel through the desert for 40 years and brought them to the edge of their inheritance. Now Joshua was to take over the leadership of the Israelites. He had a very large pair of shoes to fill and was surely overawed by the responsibility. God, himself, came to Joshua and reassured him. God told him that no enemy would be able to stand before him because He would be with him just as He had been with Moses. Then He gave him the recipe for success.

God told Joshua to "observe the law" and to "meditate therein day and night" and "do according to all that is written therein." God promised Joshua that if he would do this, he would be "prosperous" and have "good success." In verse 9 God told him not to be "afraid" or "dismayed." We stay close to God by staying close to His word. If we are reading and memorizing the scriptures, we will find reassurance when we are afraid and we will be lifted up when we are dismayed or discouraged!

The scriptures were deemed so important by the people in Old Testament times that they were rehearsed to the children, they were read to the people in public places, they were even carried on a band around the heads of the priests and certain scriptures were worn on their foreheads as reminders to them. The word of God is no less important today. How many of us lay our Bibles up on a shelf and only take it down on Sundays? How can we then say we stay in touch with God? How long has it been since you sat down and just read and meditated on God's word? How much scripture can you quote? God has given us the recipe for success if we will but heed His advise! Are you observing His laws and meditating on His word? Or are you just coasting unsuccessfully along from day to day?

PSALM 119:97 "O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day. 98 Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. 99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation. 100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts. 101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word. 102 I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me. 103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! 104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. 105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."

Stop stumbling around in the dark going nowhere! Make His word a lamp unto your feet and it will surely light up your pathway to success!

THY WORD

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path.
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet,
And a light unto my path.


When I feel afraid,
Think I've lost my way,
Still You're there, right beside me.


Nothing will I fear,
As long as You are near;
Please, be near me to the end.

Chorus

I will not forget
Your love for me and yet,
My heart forever is wandering.


Jesus be my guide,
And hold me to Your side,
And I'll love you to the end.

Chorus

Nothing will I fear,
As long as You are near;
Please be with me 'til the end.

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet,
And a light unto my path.
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path,
And a light unto my path,
You're the Light unto my path!


Psalm 119:105
