Week of August 10, 2015
Heaven on Earth Greetings and welcome to another great week!
Remember that the series this month is centered on learning how to benefit from the WORD of God and in Part 2, this week, the focus is “Meditating on the WORD.”
Meditating on the WORD, is the process of having deep spirited, insightful reasoning on the WORD of God until you 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 blood stream, the same way, the WORD of God benefits you after you 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 Himself recommended meditation to Joshua and also recommends the same to us today 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, you need to have a habit of storing up the word of God richly in your heart, make sure you always keep a good company (Psalm 1) and also learn the practice of quietness. (1 Thessalonians 4:11a).
There are much treasures for you in God’s WORD, you need to dig them out through continuous meditation.
God BLESS you
