“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” Joshua 1:8, NKJV.
I would like for you to read this scripture slowly three times before continuing with this devotional.
This morning I went to God in prayer. I sat my Bible down in front of me and just sat there, thinking to myself how out of control my thoughts have been lately. When I turned my attention to God, the first thing Holy Spirit reminded of is the importance of meditating on the Word of God. He said, “Kesha, where’s your mutter? What happened to you meditating on the Word of God?” Somewhere along the way, I had stopped. I’ve been all in my head, and Holy Spirit reminded me that I would have to meditate on the Word of God if I wanted to continue to experience more of Him in my life.
To meditate means to mutter. It is to say something repeatedly in a barely audible voice that only you can hear. Maybe you are like me, you’ve been all in your head lately, and you need to regain control of your mind and emotions. I want to ask you the same thing Holy Spirit asked me this morning. My sister, where’s your mutter? Where’s your meditating on the Word of God?
If your life isn’t where you want it to be, change starts with meditating on God’s Word. If your thoughts and emotions are all out of control, change begins with meditating on God’s Word.
Challenge: Take one Scripture from the Bible and begin to speak it over and over again at a volume only you can hear. It could be, “I can do all things through Christ, which strengthens (see Philippians 4:13).” Whatever scripture you choose to meditate on, continue to speak it and look for how it applies to your life and your situation. You will instantly experience a shift in perspective.
Let’s pray: Father God, my thoughts and emotions have been all over the place. Forgive me for not meditating on your Word. I receive your forgiveness. Help me to spend time thinking about, mulling over, and speaking your Word from my lips throughout the day and night. I receive your help. I want to experience more of you in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
