• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outlet and safe community to be apart of.

Scriptural keys to success in life (3)

'Be careful to obey all the law.' JOSHUA 1:7

Notice three things God said to Joshua:

1) 'Get ready to cross...into the land' (Joshua 1:2 NIV). Henry Ford observed, 'Before everything else, getting ready is the secret of success.' The frustrating thing about preparation is that sometimes it takes more time than the actual event you're preparing for. There's an old saying: 'You can claim to be surprised once; after that, you're unprepared'

2) 'Your territory will extend from...' (Joshua 1:4 NIV). You have to know where you're going! You cannot be like Alice in Through the Looking Glass who asks the Cheshire cat: 'Would you please tell me which way I ought to go from here?' 'That depends on where you want to get,' the cat replies. 'I don't care much where,' she answers. 'Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' the cat responds.

People who are undecided cannot draw on their faith or their gifting. As a result they merely drift along. Author Bill Copeland advises, 'You've removed most of the road blocks to success when you know the difference between motion and direction.' To be successful in life you must do the right things, moment by moment, day by day, following through with them in a consistent way

3) 'Be careful to obey all the law...that you may be successful.' Identify your spiritual values! Henri Frederic Amiel stated, 'The man who has no inner life is a slave to his surroundings.' Our spiritual values are the principles we live by every day. They are the light that guides us. They give stability and structure to our inner world. And when that world is in order, we can navigate our way through anything.
