“I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me.”
The more we refuse to depart from the Word of God, the more we will remember what He has taught us through His Word. The Lord spoke of His consistency when He assured Joshua after the death of Moses, and He reminds us of some Truths we can receive when we are consistently in the Word.
His Word tells us He will never fail or forsake us.
“There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”
His Word gives us strength and courage.
“Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.”
His Word brings us supply and success.
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
His Word removes our fear.
“Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”
As we are consistently in the Word, He will consistently teach us to live more like Him.
“He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live. Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.”
If we want the Lord to order our steps, we must be consistently in the Word.
