"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."
Joshua 1:8 (KJV)
"Joshua 1:8 God is just telling us christians to meditate in his word and be careful to do what is written there in and we will will prosper and succeed in everything that we do."
"Every successful man in the bible took time to meditate on the word of God, Psalms 1, Philippians 4:8, Joshua 1:8."
"In this chapter of Psalms 1, being God is our Saviour God is reminding us being a believer in Christ that we should not allowed ourselves to walk in the counsel of ungodly and even standeth in the way of sinners. But ratherly our delight is in the law of the Lord to concentrate on the word of God by meditating the content of the Bible, by reading and live what we read and heard. (Revelation 1:3) (Joshua 1:8) We have to submit our will to the word of God, because there is power in the word of God. God cannot control our will, God gave us freewill to do what is right and what is wrong. That is why in the garden of eden when God commanded Adam not to eat the fruit in the middle coz if he will eat of it he will surely die. But inspite of God\'s reminder the flesh was eagerly react to do the will of man, instead of the will of God. This remind us that even in our time the Bible tells us that we should submit our will to the word of God and not to the will of man otherwise our ways will lead us into into vain. Godbless us all..."
"(This is my response to G. irumbi\'s comment dated 9/13/2013 at 5:36am on Psalms Chapter 23 about verse 6): That\'s true because it is written in Joshua 1:8, \"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.\".......AMEN!!!"
"The gifts of the Holy Spirit avail much to a righteous man woman child as they mature. as they mature, more will be added onto their belief or to the calling. the multi layer of apostles prophets evangelists pastors teachers covers all parts of many menbers of the body of Christ, to bring salvation those who are poor in spirit for example. as the member of Christ mature, they become peacekeeper, see God, angels, see miracles, speak in tongues, and speak unknown truth about your past or your calling, faith worketh by love. abide in ME and the words abide in you, ask what ye will and it shall be done.john 15:7, yet proverb 18:2021, Joshua 1:8, mark 4:24, 25, Poverb 4:20-25, Ps.1:23 all generally says, if the words abide in you, healing is there finaces will come, it is faith works that create all things that are possible. anyway I am basically speaking general. if one ask not, he receive not. knowledge produce faith as well.i\'ve healed and delivered, baptized and each level demands more maturity out of us, stagnation is truly dangerous as I\'ve notice..matthew 5 is truly a stepping stone to sonship, search overcome in 7 letters you\'ll see sonship again, growing is is a must. Eph 1, eph 3 are great prayer to prepare thyself for growth, as well said above verses to meditate, for the words of GOD is spiritually alive and full of power/authority=righteousness given way back in romans. it is a multi level understanding to be any of the 5 ranks of His ministries here on earth equal to what is in heaven to bring his LIGHT and his Glory through is Love servants like ourselves."
"To Train a child means to make the child know the word of God from an early age When the word is poured into the child as soon as possible the word will stand as a compass it will direct the child even if the child make some mistake along the way.

That is why the Lord said to Joshua this book of the law or this word of the Lord move over this Jesus shall not depart from your mouth Joshua 1:8 when we Train our children the way of God it will definitely change the course of that child\'s life forever"
"God has given us His word The Bible to study and grow in it and to share to others in order to face the challenges of life and to be victorious. The Bible says in 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 you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. " It is when we study the Bible that this word will be in our mouths, and through this word in our mouths and hearts we shall 1. Know the Law of our God 2. Do as expected of us 3. Prosper and succeed in it 4. Get the weapon of word which is the sword of the Spirit to fight our battles. Ephesians 6:17. In short we must study God 's word The Bible to be stronger in the Lord. Ephesians 6:10-11. Jesus used the power and weapon of the word " IT IS WRITTEN " to conquer satan after His forty days and nights fast and prayer. Matthew 4: 1-11. Finally study the word, share the word of truth and let all believers get the power of the word to do all things. My own comment on 2 Timothy 2:15. Pastor Taiwo Olusoji Peter Nigeria ."
