I recently read an article by Carlie Terradez (Charis Bible instructor) that gives a good, practical explanation of the importance of meditating on the Word (Joshua 1:8, Revelation 12:11). She said, “Meditating on the Word is how our spirits digest. By keeping the promises of God before us, allowing them to consume our thoughts, color our words, and influence our decisions, something glorious happens—we have “good success.”
Realize that you meditate on a lot of things throughout the day, and some can be negative meditation, right? You know, the economy, the lack of a job, the stress and pressure of making everyone happy, etc. The more you meditate on your lack in any area, the more prone you are to the enemy’s deceptive thinking that provides no hope. But when you change your meditation throughout the day to line up with promises of God’s Word and Jesus’ finish work for you, your thought patterns change. Your mind becomes renewed, and your heart is receptive to believe God’s living Word. The reality of the God’s grace, love, and abundant provision through Jesus will be what you know and therein you will have good success.
