Day and night.
These are the important keywords in Joshua 1:8
Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.” (Joshua 1:8 NLT)
The key to a prosperous and successful life is to learn loving the word of God. Meditate on it, not just when we feel like reading it, or when we are obliged to read it. Read it, meditate on it, eat it (not literally though), and love it.
THEN you will be prosperous and successful.
My child, listen to what I say, and treasure my commands. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God. For the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a shield to those who walk with integrity. He guards the paths of the just and protects those who are faithful to him. Then you will understand what is right, just, and fair, and you will find the right way to go. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy. Wise choices will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe. (Proverbs 2: 1-11 NLT)” I suggest you read the whole chapter. 😉
You can study in prestigious universities if you want; get as much knowledge this world can offer, but if you don’t align your thoughts to the mind who created the universe every knowledge you amass will all be for naught. God has given us the Manual of life–the Bible–and all we have to do is to read it, live it out, and meditate on it
day and night.
