Joshua 1:8 KJVS
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.
Every time I read the phrase “thou shall make they way prosperous” in the above verse, I get to thinking.
Why are many Christians waiting for God and on God to make them successful and prosperous? The recipe and the ingredients for success, good health and prosperity has been given to us by God. Now the responsibility of success good health and prosperity and all other good things is not with him anymore, it’s with us.
Many are waiting for God to move the waters. “God, do something”. “God, speak. If God speaks my troubles will be over”. I always wonder what we are waiting for God to do or say that he hasn’t done or said already. I dont know what we think the Bible is for. Well if you care to know, a man waited at the pool for 38years for the movement of the waters by the angel of God and still couldn’t get healed until Jesus came by to heal him. (John 5:1-16)
There is a way to make your way prosperous and have good success. It is your responsibility and not God’s. Visiting all the powerful prayer camps and neglecting this way will never solve your problems. You can get patches here and there: temporal fixes.
But if…”at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them”. (Matthew 13:15). This is what meditation does for you.
Meditate to see, meditate to hear, meditate to understand. And when that transformation and conversion happens within, in your mind, nothing can stop it from showing forth physically.
