There would be no need for positive healthy encouragement if it were not given.
Think about the above statement. Reread it if necessary.
Positive healthy encouragement only comes from a place of confidence, authority, and love those who love, encourage others to move by faith into their Promised Land.
We can read and Joshua 1:8 the Lord is telling Joshua for a second time in the same breath how to secure success and prosperity.
The Lord clearly gives Joshua the formula for success and prosperity. It is a simple formula. According to the biblical Book of Joshua, the formula for True success is as follows:
Keeping the law in your mouth + meditate on the law on the law day and night + doing according to all that is written in the law = a prosperous way, wise dealings, and ultimate true success.
In this formula, there is a lot of mention of the word law. What is this law?
In all practical sense, Jesus Christ sums up the entire law given to Moses with to command. Those two commands are (1) love God and (2) love people.
When you love God, you love people. All is fulfilled because God is love.
Our true success simply comes from loving God first.
Jesus said, seek God’s Kingdom first. If you seek God’s kingdom first in everything you say and do, all needed and necessary things will follow.
Your dreams, your leadership aspirations, and your vision will be yours *after* you seek God’s Kingdom first. In order to seek God’s kingdom first, you must first love God.
God’s kingdom is your secret to success. The kingdom of God is your Providence. Without God’s kingdom, you have no vision, no dream, no plan, no direction, and no true success.
Your true success is located inside of God’s Kingdom. That is why you should seek his kingdom first.
God promises this prosperity and true success when we first look for his kingdom in everything we say and do. Everything. Every day.
I believe, this is what the Lord was telling Joshua, “Joshua, I have success for you but first make sure that you meditate on my words day and night, and do what they say. Put action to the ideas. Bring life to those words through your actions. Make sure these words never leave your mouth, Joshua.
One of the key ingredients to your success is to keep God’s word in your mouth.

When your mouth opens God’s law and word should be heard and seen and should never be absent.
