God is saying that, "Joshua, it's not what you know, it's who you know! If you know me, if you meditate on my Word, if you meditate on my Law, then you will succeed. Then, you will be prosperous. You can go out, Joshua, and study the art of war, but if you neglect my Word, you're going to lose." And isn't it amazing how many times we, as Christians, seek alternate advice, alternate counsel all the while, neglecting the Word of God. **originally preached on March 24, 2019**
