Pray that the Holy Spirit gives you understanding
Read the chapter first then memorize the verse
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 1:9 KJV
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.
