WORKING THE WORD 6



“I will meditate on Your precepts, And contemplate Your ways.” 

Psalm 119:15 (NKJV)



Throughout this week we have patiently been looking into How to Work the Word of God.

I have explained that for the Word to manifest in your life:

you must first trust the Word and have the conviction that the Word Works.

you must create an environment for the Word to be sown, this is the environment of your heart.

you must intentionally see the word of God as a seed.

you must understand how to cultivate the word of God in your heart.

and you must understand that through the cultivation or meditation of the Word you can create good success.

Again, let’s see what God said to Joshua after Moses’ death:

“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” Joshua 1:8 (ESV).

I mentioned previously that the above scripture is the elixir for good success.

Meditation is not a mere religious cliché. It is a proven divine method for good success.

This statement to Joshua is repeatedly affirmed in the scriptures.

Take a look at another verse:

“But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.” Psalm 1:2-3 (NKJV)

This is exciting.

There is so much the meditation of the Word does to you, it brings the richness of the Word of God unto fruition in your life.

Some struggle to be diligent in meditating on the Word of God because they have not made it their delight.

This is the point:

Whether you are conscious of it or not, you are always involved in some level of meditation. The issue has always been what you are meditating on daily. If you want to see the results of the Word of God, you must meditate on the Word. 

Until the Word of God becomes your delight, you will not make it your object of meditation.

Therefore delight in the Word.

These are basic steps for effective meditation.

1. Read the Word (and also listen to the teachings of the Word of Grace).

You have access to the Word of God through the reading of the Bible. The Bible addresses every situation. Be an avid reader of the Bible to know what God has said about your situation. The Word of God also comes to you through sound teachings (therefore listen to tapes and be present at Church meetings. God always has a word for you).

2. Intentionally memorize the scriptures. Don’t be forgetful.

Previously, I mentioned that the word doesn’t manifest just because you are aware of the scriptures. This doesn’t suggest you don’t have to be aware of the scriptures. What it means is that memorizing or being aware of the scriptures is not the end in itself. Memorizing the scriptures is useful for meditation. When you memorize a specific scripture, it becomes easy to regurgitate.

3. Continue daily, at every given time to think upon or mull over the Word in your heart over and over again. And then mutter, speak those words to yourself, till it becomes your bold and loud joyful confessions.

This brings you to the state where you are not only aware of the Word, but you personalize and exercise ownership of the revelation of the Word for your manifestation.

Selah.

DIG DEEPER
(James 1:22-25; Psalm 119:11, Deuteronomy 6:5-6; 29:9; Isaiah 46:10; Luke 6:45; Isaiah 55:8-13)
 
WE PRAY

We pray that:

We will have the discipline and diligence to continuously set our hearts on the meditation of the Word.

In the name of Jesus!

God blesses through the obedience of His Word.
You only fool yourself when you read the Word without doing (James 1:22-25). It’s a waste of time and resources when you read without faith.

Spend immense time meditating on the Word

Through yesterday’s episode and today’s episode touching on Meditation, I have now seen how to practically meditate on the Word.

I have intentionally started practicing it and I’m seeing the results already.

“How can a young person live a clean life? By carefully reading the map of your Word. I’m single-minded in pursuit of you; don’t let me miss the road signs you’ve posted. I’ve banked your promises in the vault of my heart so I won’t sin myself bankrupt. Be blessed, God; train me in your ways of wise living. I’ll transfer to my lips all the counsel that comes from your mouth; I delight far more in what you tell me about living than in gathering a pile of riches. I ponder every morsel of wisdom from you, I attentively watch how you’ve done it. I relish everything you’ve told me of life, I won’t forget a word of it. * * *”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭9‬-‭16‬ ‭MSG‬‬
