Transform your life through meditation on the Word

Psalm 1:2-3 KJV
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; And in his law doth he meditates day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

The Psalmist begins the entire book of Psalms, stating that the man who does not walk with sinners but delights and meditates on the Word of God Day and night will flourish like a tree planted by the streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers.

Meditating on scripture helps us grow, like a well-watered plant. We will blossom and grow fruit and that fruit will help feed others. But we can’t do this well unless we meditate on the word of God.

The word ‘‘meditate’’ in Hebrew is ‘‘Hagah’’ which means “to reflect, ‘‘to contemplate’’, ‘‘to ruminate,” “to mutter,” ‘to speak of something under your voice”; “to say something to yourself repeatedly.
Am sure you’ve worried about something before, you thought about it over and over again. Interestingly, meditation is very similar to worrying, you need the same infrastructure to do both. So, if you can worry, you can meditate on the Word.

For the Word of God to produce results for you and in you, you’d have to meditate on it. Through meditation, you drive the Word deep into your spirit.

You ponder over a Scripture, ponder upon it, and mutter it to yourself continuously. As you do this, the Word will get into your spirit and become personal to you. It takes root in your heart and influences your thoughts, feelings, desires, decisions, etc.

God’s Word will do nothing to you until it changes the things you genuinely believe, or the ideas you keep, feelings you have, or desires that control you. If you struggle with believing the Word, meditate! If you struggle with anxiety or fear, meditate on the Word!

For example, everything around you may look dark and hopeless, and then the devil tells you, “You’re finished, you don’t have anything or anyone to help you, you’re not going to survive this.” Now, you already know the scripture that says, ‘‘I have been crucified with Christ, it is no longer I who lives but Christ who lives in me and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me’’. (Galatians 2:20), and you’ve been quoting it, but nothing has changed. However, this time, you think it over, ponder over it, saying it to yourself again and again, until it starts bubbling inside you.

The devil may try again to discourage you but refuse to yield; just keep saying: “I have the life of God in me, I am full of life! Righteousness, success, divine health, and supernatural prosperity are part of my divine. At this point, something is happening to your spirit; you’re driving the Word deep into your spirit.

Psalm 119:11
“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”

The Word must be in your heart. So, how are you going to put it there? You write the Word in your heart with your tongue, by speaking it. Your tongue is the pen of a skillful writer (Psalm 45:1); as you study or listen to the Word, you find your heart overflowing with this composition. As you speak forth the Word, it gets framed on your heart. Writing it in your notes is with ink; but He wants it written on the fleshy tables of your heart.

2 Corinthians 3:3 says,
clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart”.

When you have the Word on the inside of you, out of that abundance, you’ll bring forth good things.
I know the phrase, ‘‘remain in the Word of God’’ is mentioned almost at every Sunday Service and it may begin to sound cliche, but there’s no other way around it, we cannot do without it. We must remain in the Word, for it is our sword. Furthermore, we must cultivate the habit of meditation for the word to take root in our hearts.

Prophetic Utterance:

The Word of God is in my heart and in my mouth, producing fruits of righteousness. As I meditate on the Word, it mingles with my spirit, causing me to a walk-in success, victory, prosperity, peace, and everlasting joy.

Hebrews 4:12 (NKJV)
12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

1 Timothy 4:15 (KJV)
15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.
