      Joshua 1:8 says - Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; 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. (NIV) God has promised prosperity and success to those who obey His words, but not necessarily on our time scale. Has He prospered you? Has He made you successful?

      Dear Lord, Thank you
  • For the prosperity you have sent our way
  • For the success you have given us
