Be strong and very courageous. Make sure to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.
If you want prosperity wherever you go you simply need to keep the focus on the insights, advice, knowledge, wisdom, example, and success of your mentor….wait! You *do* have a mentor, don’t you?
Before Joshua began to move forward in his action of leadership, I believe he had to undergo a process of renewal, conditioning and mind setting. Before gaining the necessary confidence to lead a nation of people to victory, I believe Joshua needed to know victory himself. Joshua needed to think about his assignment in the perspective of a specific victorious vision.
Dreaming about the vision actually gave voice to the vision. The vision was able to provide specific directions for Joshua. Your vision will do the same for you too.
In this example, the details of direction were found in the vision. Vision actually became words for Joshua….words in the form of pictures and his mind. Thoughts.
Vision speaks of past, present, and future.
The voice of vision uses the present to light the wood of the *learned and understood* experiences of the past which fuel the fiery passion and desire the future dream.
God used the dream and vision to speak to Joshua.
The Lord used the vision to build Joshua up. The great God of Israel gave Joshua a pep talk that has miraculously continued to encourage lives of the greatest leaders to this day!
According to the text found in the first chapter of the Book of Joshua, this is the second time Joshua is told to be strong.
1. Be strong. Joshua 1:6. This strength was necessary to produce the results of leading others into their Destinies and dreams.
2. Be strong. Joshua 1:7. This strength was necessary to follow the example assess, wisdom m, advice, words of the mentor.
This second strong is what we need if we want to have Prosperity wherever we go.
You may have heard the adage, Success leaves Clues. These Clues are found in the words and examples of those who have gone before us.
The words of your mentor are not new. They are old. They are ancient and timeless. You have heard the wisdom, one-liners, and Proverbs many times.
For you to become prosperous, you need the strength to stay focused on the *law* given to you by your mentor and leader.
