Joshua 1:8 KJV “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.”
Joshua and the Israelites prepared to take the promised land their GOD vowed to them. As they did, they had one thing to keep in mind. They had to be strong, courageous; more important than anything else, they had to obey the law of the LORD.
They had to observe and do according to all the law that Moses commanded them. Turning to right or left was strictly prohibited; it would not prosper such who turns from the straight and narrow path.
Ultimately, the book of the law is not to depart out of one’s heart and mouth. They (and we today) should meditate upon the law of GOD day and night. This is required in order to be prosperous and have good success.
This does take strength and courage. This is the secret way for the ALMIGHTY to be with you wherever you go.

3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.
5 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.
6 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.
7 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 withersoever thou goest.
8 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.
9 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.
10 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying,

12 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying,
