“Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” (Joshua 1:8).
God created us to have fellowship with Him. And through our union with Him, God gave us delegated authority to have dominion. To rule over creation and live a fruitful life. (Genesis 1:26-28).
We can see that it was never in God’s plan for us to fail. From the very beginning it is God’s will to bless mankind. He created us in his own image and likeness so that we are blessed.
Although, the road to success can be bumpy but if we will discipline our lives with the Word of God as God instructed Joshua, God will help us to make progress in life. God has given us His Word so that we can receive and enjoy His divine blessings.
Jesus said, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” (Matthew 4:4). Even Jesus, the Son of God depended on the Word of God to fulfill His divine assignment on the earth. And that is the same instruction God gave to Joshua.
We have so many expressions to this effect from Jesus in the Bible. Including in John14:10, “Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.”
Now, if we can connect the dots, we can see the same process of dominion mandate in operation. God created us in His image and likeness to have fellowship with him and have dominion over creation through obedience to His Word.
You were created to have dominion in God’s covenant plan. God created you for a purpose and to be a partaker of His promises in the Bible. He has great plans for your life and God wants to direct your path to victory through His Word. I encourage you to get into God’s Word, read it, confess and meditate on it daily. Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word. How to overcome in this world is to believe God and be obedient to His word.
