Meditation key to developing divine mindset and living a life of success – Part 1
Joshua 1:8 – 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.
Philippians 4:8 – Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
The definitions of meditation include, to mutter, to muse, to speak out, ponder or think deeply.
From the above definition of meditation, it appears every human being meditate daily and a lot. There is however, godly meditation and there is ungodly meditation. Godly meditation enables you to release divine virtues in our favour. Ungodly meditation result in hatching and releasing evil forces. I’m sure you have heard of premeditated murder. So watch what you are meditating on because it always births something.
Mediation is so very important to our success and as a matter of fact, in the King James version of the bible, it is Joshua 1:8 that the word success was ever used in the bible. This is implies that meditation plays a major role in our success in life. The question now is how is it possible to meditate day and night and what does it mean to practise meditation the bible way?
Meditating day and night does not mean you should quit your job and lock yourself up and do nothing but read only the bible 24/7. No it implies that you should never lose touch or sight of divine realities, the God’s promises and design for you any time of your day. How is that possible or how can it be done?
From our above definition we will explore what the practice of mediation means. They include: –
Mutter – to speak under your breath, to grumble words. For example if you are in the shopping mall and you utter God’s promises under your breath as you are doing your shopping, that process is called meditation. Saying God’s word under your breath gets your spirit charged and ready for the manifestation of God’s power. Another example of muttering is when you miss-lay your car keys and you begin to ask your self, ‘ where did I leave these keys’ when you do that, you put your mind to work. Not only are physically searching for the keys, you are also searching for it mentally. The process of engaging your mental being through the words you speak leads to discoveries. Remember the woman with the issue of blood? The bible says, she kept saying to herself, if touch the hem of his garment, I shall be made who and she was healed.
