June 12: The Ancient Secret of Meditation

Joshua 1:8

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shall 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.”

Proverbs 4:20-22

20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.

21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart;

22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.

Meditation is an ancient secret that lets you in on the deep things of God. It is one key that opens you up to the fullness of God’s secrets ─ the fullness of God’s knowledge, counsel and wisdom for success in life, in career, in business, in ministry and in destiny. When a man has the secrets of God upon his tabernacle, he stands out in life and becomes an outstanding person; a person of class, worth and distinction. The secrets of God are not superficial; they are very deep. No, they are not complicated, but they are not cheap. Yes, they are simple, but must be revealed through search and research. Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water, but a man of understanding will search it out (Proverbs 20:5). Therefore, it takes active and intense involvement in the Word to glean wisdom from it, and meditation is the means to making it possible. Through meditation in the Word and the help of the Spirit of God, we crack the shell around the mysteries of the kingdom of God and get into sucking marrow out of bones. Meditation is God’s access into realms of deep secrets that make for triumph in life.

Biblical meditation begins with the confession of the Word (Joshua 1:8). It is not like the eastern religions where people just close their eyes and then try to travel with the mind; that is demonic and unscriptural. Christian meditation involves putting the Word in your mouth and saying it to yourself, until it becomes your inner consciousness and awareness. You keep saying it to yourself, until it drops into your heart. That means those words become what you are conscious of within you. Then the Spirit of God steps in to give you illumination by the Word. As an example, if you are meditating on Psalms 23:1, you have to speak out to yourself, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want…” You call out your name and put it there, addressing yourself with absolute focus on what you are saying which is God’s Word. You say it to the point that that knowledge and awareness captures your inner being and your heart agrees to that Word, your heart says yes to it. The very moment it drops into the core of your being, your heart can relate with it, and whatever your heart can truly relate with is what will manifest in your outward experiences.

My Solid Front (Confession): 

In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I give attention to meditating in the Word of God daily. My life reflects the substance of the Word of God as I give myself to biblical meditation. I declare that my soul is refreshed and my faith is built up as I meditate on God’s Word daily. Amen

Further Meditation:

Job 29:1-25; Psalms 1:1-6.
