Spiritual Meditation (1)
Ministry of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality(TS)
“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” (Joshua 1:8).
Meditation is well recognised in the field of health with regard to its contribution to peace, tranquility, relaxation, recovery, and mental stability.
Meditation entails keeping your mind focused on the subject or object of your choice, long enough to bring about calmness and relaxation. Meditation helps to reduce the daily worries of life. There are variety of meditation ranging from spiritual to secular, which is not the subject of this writing. Spiritual meditation can solve virtually every problem.
In our memory verse, God admonished Joshua who succeeded Moses on the key to success and prosperity. Joshua was advised to hold unto the word of God as his number one priority, ‘meditate therein day and night’.
As true believers, there are many verses in the bible that deal with all our life issues. Meditating on the word of God is taking a particular verse relevant to your situation and focusing, ‘chewing’, ‘eating’ , ‘digesting’ and ‘absorbing’ the verse until the verse is in your blood, heart and spirit. About 10-20 minutes should be enough for this at a time or shorter. When the word of God is your heart and spirit, speaking the word is easy; obedience to the Word becomes easier. It’s unfortunate that many Christians have not learnt to meditate on the word of God daily.
For example, it’s never God’s plan for any of His children to be ill. If you are in need of healing for a particular ailment or condition, try meditating on these two scriptures:
“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed” ( 1Peter 2:24).
“And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee” (Exodus 15:26).
Apply the scriptures to yourself personally. For example, by repeatedly saying by the stripes of Jesus , I am healed, and focusing your mind on the area you need healing. Please, don’t forget to keep praising God in Christ and offering thanksgiving as you meditate on the scriptures .
Grace and peace be multiplied to you in Jesus name. Amen
Have a blessed weekend.
Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit .
Thank you Jesus for the grace in the word .
Father, please give us the grace to meditate on your word day and night in Jesus precious name. Amen
Father, please give me the grace to be sensitive to your Holy Spirit in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
