Adding or Subtracting?

“Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go.

“This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.”
~ Joshua 1: 7 – 8

“Wow! I had not seen that before,” I thought.

Pastor Steve was preaching on Joshua 1: 7 – 8. I had seen this passage many times and knew we should obey the Word and meditate on it, but these words jumped out at me: “This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth.”

Instead of wondering how I can ADD God to my conversations with others, I am commanded not to SUBTRACT Him!

Pastor Steve offered these tips for speaking continually about God:

1. Educate people in His ways
2. Encourage people in their walk
3. Exalt God’s wonders

God promises success with this new mindset. I believe God gives more opportunities if He knows that we will speak. If God nudges YOU, what pops out?
