The truth is alive, creative, and life transforming. When a person begins to allow the Word of God to mold his thoughts and actions, he will start moving into a life of spiritual and life-giving understanding of truth. He walks according to the spirit and not according to the flesh.
Meditation is one of the greatest keys to gain understanding and revelation about the truth. Meditation is to fill our mind with the thoughts of God. The thoughts of God can be found from the Word of God. We need to consume the Word of God in our mind in order to effortlessly do the things what God has said. In other words, meditation makes a person to be a doer of the Word of God easily. People fail to act according to the Word of God just because they donít meditate on the truth.
Psalmist says that ďI have more understanding than all my teachers, for Your testimonies (Words) are my meditation. The entrance of Your Words gives light and it gives understanding to the simple.Ē Meditation not only helps us to gain knowledge, but also gives us understanding of God to follow His principles and His will. When we begin to meditate, we will have a spiritual awareness and the understanding of how to walk in what God is revealing to us.
A classic scripture about meditation is Joshua 1:8 Ė This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe 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.
One of the main purposes of meditation is to do the will of God. We must see before we can do it. In order to see, we need to meditate in the Word of God, so that our spirit gets enlightened with the revelation about the truth thus enabling to act according to the Word of God. True meditation makes us to act in line with Godís Word. Faith demands action. The results are amazing and marvellous when we meditate the Word of God. Whenever in the Bible, God speaks about meditation, there is prosperity involved in it, so the results of meditating the Word of God is prosperity and good success.
If a person meditates in the Word of God and be a doer of the Word of God, success is unavoidable. God expects you to be a doer of His Word, God cannot do the Word for you and no one else can do for you, you should do the Word of God. But once you become the doer of the Godís Word, you will begin to prosper no matter what season it is. One thing to be noticed here is God links our success together with our commitment to His Word.
God has already delegated His power and authority to us through Jesus Christ in order to live a life of prosperity and success. His success is available now and it is our duty to be a winner in this world. It is our right to be rich, happy, and prosperous.
When you meditate in the Word of God, it takes preeminence in your life and your progress becomes evident to everyone, you will profit, you will increase, you will become more productive, and you will be like an exhibit to those around you. God wants the whole world to see what He has done in you. God wants your success to appear to all those with whom you come into contact. You will become a living example proving Godís Word in your life. You will lead a life of true nature of God.
A person who does not make Godís Word real in his life is the one who do not meditate on Godís Word. In order to prove Godís Word, we should commit ourselves to the Word of God and become totally engrossed in His Word. No one receives the results of faith without the commitment to live by faith. Only committed, diligent people receive rewards, for God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Heb 11:6). When you commit yourself entirely to the Word of God, God becomes the guarantee of your profit and He is getting actively involved in your life. When you entirely commit to God, He entirely commits to you. So start meditating on the Word of God and see the good success and prosperity overflowing in your life.
You present a very unfortunate mixture of truth and error. But then that is the art of deception at it's best, is it not? For you are trying to 'teach' people how to 'walk in the Spirit' and live 'godly' lives, and yet you say if we do so, "It is our right to be rich". And herein is the problem for you and your 'teachings' Stephen. For the Word of God in 1 Timothy 6 has something very specific to say about those who teach that 'godliness is a means of gain',- that we should withdraw ourselves from such a person (and I implore all those who read your words to do that very thing,- withdraw from you). You also need to understand that using the word 'meditation' as you are, will likely cause some to incorporate or confirm the use and practice of Hindu/new-age 'meditation' even within their so-called 'Christianity'. You really need to give some serious thought as to what you say and how you say it... Again I draw your attention to James 3 vs 1.
