Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Follow The Leader”
Text: Joshua 1:8
“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 according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
“Follow The Leader,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. What marks a Successful Leader is the Leader They Follow; the Only True God Our Commander, or the liar and deceiver our enemy!
Joshua has served Moses in Faithful obedience for forty years. This is also a critical ingredient of a Leader, to Faithfully Follow Their Leader as their Leader Follows God. Paul told the Believers in Corinth to: “Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.”(1Corin.11:1) as Joshua was commanded so he obeyed.
The ‘Book of the Law’ revealed the Leader Moses Followed, as it reveals our Commander and King Jesus Christ, Who is also named The Word of God. (John 1:1,14; Rev.19:13).
We Follow Our Leader by “meditating upon, and obeying the Word of God.” By doing this we will make our way prosperous, and be a Successful Servant Leader. We cannot obey what we do not know; this is why it is critical that Warriors Know the Word of God. This is How the Warrior Learns to Know His Commander. Knowing His Word and Obeying His Word Grows Faith: “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”(Rom.10:17).
We engage spiritual warfare in great faith and confidence when we Know God’s Word and Deploy God’s Word upon our spiritual enemies of wickedness! Ooooh Rah!
As Joshua learned, so we too learn as Warriors: Our Commander and King is The Leader We Follow - and He IS the One Who Conquers ALL Enemies of Righteousness. He did this for Joshua and Israel and He will do this for you my fellow Warrior! For He is the Same Today as He was Yesterday, and as He Will Be Tomorrow - UNCHANGING! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
