Versed: Joshua 1:8

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful 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.
Joshua 1:8, ESV

We should be regularly reading, reciting, and ruminating on (thinking about) Scripture. It helps with our day to day life and prepares us for the next life.

VerseD: Psalm 77:11-12

I will remember the deeds of the Lord ; yes, I will remember your wonders of old. I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds.
Psalm 77:11‭-‬12, ESV

God created all things, guided Israel through the wilderness, rebuked and disciplined His people, and saved all who believe He came as a human and died on the cross for our sins.

There are many reasons to praise God. Think of all He has done for you, and worship.

VerseD: 2 Corinthians 10:5

We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ
2 CORINTHIANS 10:5, NASB

We not only let God change our thinking, we challenge what this world says about Him.

He is God. He is on our side. The world’s seemingly “good” arguments are nonsense compared to His Truth.

VerseD: Joshua 1:8

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful 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.
Joshua 1:8, ESV

Joshua meant the Torah -the five books of Moses- here, but for the Christian we should be thinking about all of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation.

Our success, though, is not based on worldly goods or measurements. It is based on obedience to Christ.
