Some people don't believe on meditation. Think its a Buddhist thing. Oh so wrong. Joshua 1:8 tells us to meditate on the Word day and night with the end result being prosperity and success. Let me say this about prosperity. I'm not one to tell you that prosperity is money, clothes, jobs, spouses, houses, cars, and the other material things of this world. 3 John 1:2 reads "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." This is the prosperity that I pray for you. That you will prosper in health and God. That your soul gets fed and nourished. That your eyes light up with the thought of Jesus. That your heart sings with the good news when you think on how far God has brought you. That you praise Him when the storm comes. That you feel His presence when death has claimed a loved one. This is prosperity in my eyes. This is what real wealth is, the reciprocal love between you and the Father.
Sorry, I went astray. Back to meditation. Meditating on the Word isn't bad or un-Christian. It is needed. Have you ever been in a jam and had no idea of what to do, then all of a sudden, you remembered a scripture in the bible and it led you in the right direction? This can be a result of meditation. When I take a bible verse and read it, study it, learn in, hide it in my heart, I've meditated on that thing. Meditate means to simply think deeply on something for a period of time. Here recently, the book of Colossians has been my focused meditation. Why? Because God keeps sending me here. (This doesn't mean you have to read this book for your meditation.) Sometimes, when we have no idea, we can look up to the hills which cometh our help and ask God, where do you want me to read today? When we are keyed into His voice, we'll hear where He wants us to go. Often we'll get a deeper understanding of the trials that are in our life by just taking the time to read His instructions - the bible.
So take the time and meditate. Get what you need daily. Focus on the Word and let God speak to your heart so that you may grow and prosper in your soul.
Be A Blessing and Not Just Blessed
