My New Dawn Greetings to you in Jesus Name and welcome to another glorious week.
We are still exploring the topic “ Making 2018 a Glorious Year, and our focus is on the role of the WORD in the making of a glorious year. This week, I will like us to examine the profits derived from “Meditating on the WORD.”
Meditating on the WORD is the process of having deep spirited and insightful reasoning on the WORD of God until we get to a point where we can draw out the virtues in it.
It can be likened to the natural process of absorption of the food we eat. Just like food only benefits the body after it has been absorbed into the bloodstream, the same way, the WORD of God benefits us after we have meditated on it.
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.…” – KJV
God personally recommended meditation to Joshua and today, He recommends the same to us because it equips us with the power to see whatever He commands in His Word as possible and translates it from a written or spoken word into a visible reality.
In order to maximize this great practice, we all individually need to have a habit of storing up the Word of God richly in our hearts, making sure we always keep a good company (Psalm 1) and also learn the practice of quietness (1 Thessalonians 4:11a)
God&rsquo’s WORD is loaded with tons of treasures but we need to take responsibility and dig through them through continuous meditation.
Make meditating on God’s Word a lifestyle and watch how gloriously 2018 will unfold for you
God BLESS you.
