TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Joshua 1:8
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.
When one hears the word meditation, they immediately think of Eastern religious practices. The picture they have makes them avoid the topic altogether fearing that they might be dabbling in the demonic. But meditation is one of the most important and necessary Christian practices. Our text shows that it is through meditation that we can have good success. This implies there is bad success. Bad success is having a good house but living under fear of bank repossession; having a good car with no fue or a marriage devoid of peace, joy and understanding.
But we are to have good success through meditation. The word meditate is the Hebrew word “hagar” which means to mutter, muse or growl. So you take The Word of God and constantly speak it to yourself. You deeply ponder the words you are speaking until you get lost in their reality. By so doing, your mind-set changes to align with God’s glorious thoughts for you. The treasures in you are unleashed and
you become fruitful in all you do.
I have The Word of God in me. As I habitually meditate, I garner good success in business, in marriage, in ministry and in all I do! My life is progressing and is a reflection of God’s goodness.
