Let the words of my mouth and the MEDIATION of my heart be acceptable in thy sight; O Lord, you are my strength and my redeemer (Psalm 19:14). Meditation is to engage mentally on something repeatedly. You are constantly thinking about this thing or person repeatedly; day in and day out. Whatever you meditate on day and night will rule your world. The purpose of MEDITATION is to condition the mind with pure motives to act in a way that pleases God.
Mediation will sometimes take you backwards to move you forward. Righteous meditation will always transition you from your past to your present with spiritual insight for the future.
READ, OBSERVE, THINK AND TAKE ACTION
In Joshua 1:8, we read, “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.”
In this verse, God is instructing us to read, observe, think, and take action on his word.
Mediation requires that we read God’s word to know his thoughts on the matter.
Meditation requires that we observe and think meaning to take an inward spiritual reflection on our motives to ensure they align with God’s word.
Meditating God’s way empowers us to take action as necessary.
STRENGTH AND REDEEMER
Meditation on God’s word disrupts delays in your assignments because the Holy Spirit comes along side you with supernatural STRENGTH to equip you to “break up with” the thing or person that is hindering your God-given assignment.
God always allow a break up before a breakthrough.
When I'm making lemon meringue pies, I always have to separate the egg white from the egg yolk. The egg white is used to make the meringue but the egg yolk is used to make the lemon custard. If one is mixed with the other, it can destroy both the meringue and the lemon custard. If the egg is never broken, then I cannot get access to the egg white and the egg yolk, which are essential ingredients to get the end result, the delicious lemon meringue pie.
Meditation on God's word will break the eggs in your life so that God can take the remains to make your way prosperous and give you good success.
Mediation on God’s word harnesses the STRENGTH for the “break up” so that you can “breakthrough”.
Righteous mediation yields redemption. Meditation on God’s word activates the power of the REDEEMER to act on your behalf in the midst of a battle.
Your REDEEMER will cause your righteous meditation to see through your enemy’s camouflage.
Whatever is hidden from you, will be revealed to you because the REDEEMER will remove the scales from your eyes so that you can see. You cannot see what's on the inside of that egg, but the Holy Ghost knows that there must be a break up so that you can receive your breakthrough.
Meditation has the power to reveal what is hidden. Once a thing is revealed, you can be healed. Your REDEEMER will turn every curse that comes your way into a blessing (Matthew 16:17).
The end result in your life is PROSPERITY and GOOD SUCCESS! Joshua 1:8
Dear Heavenly Fatherly,
Let the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight; O’ Lord, you are my strength and my redeemer. You alone will make my way prosperous and give me good success. Today, I break up the eggs in my life and I rely on God to turn the remains into something great. Jesus, you said, take my yoke upon you, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light (Matthew 11:30). Thank you Lord for easy yokes and light burdens today because I mediate on your word day and night.
In the name of Jesus, amen.
