Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do (Joshua 1:8) (NLT).
While we are living in this world we seek wisdom and knowledge. We always intended to know about new things. For this wisdom and knowledge we move from here to there. It is written in the Bible that people will go here and there to increase knowledge (Daniel 12:4). Do we really know that we have an ancient book which was given by God centuries ago, the best resource of wisdom and knowledge and the secret behind our prosperity. This book is named “The Bible”. Many people know this book from cover to cover, but they have not known what this covered with, how sad it is. From the beginning God wants us to know what God is speaking and meditate upon it. Not only meditating but we should teach others about these things that they should walk in the way God is teaching us (Deuteronomy 4:9).
God spoke to Joshua after his election as the leader of Israelites and told him, that he should meditate upon the Law of God day and night (Joshua 1:8). Then he will be successful in everything that he does. When we see the above verse, it is speaking about the studying this book continually. When God was speaking to Moses about the kings, He said what the king should do. The king should keep the law with him, and he is to read it all the days of his life so that he may learn and follow all the words of God (Deuteronomy 17:19). This is the secret behind a king to be a successful king. Yes, we should also keep the Word of God with us and we should read it every day all the days of our life, then we will be successful in whatever we do. We will see success in our jobs, we will be successful in our ministries, and families as well.
There was a time where the law of God should be read by the priests and all should be the audience, but now many of us have the Bible with us and can read the Word. In these busiest days of our life we are ready to do many things for many hours other than reading the Word of God. We have time to read the news papers for hours, watch television for hours, but we do not have time to read the Word of God for ten minutes in a day. We have time to update our statuses on Face Book and Twitter, but we do not have time to know what our status in God is? I have experienced the importance of meditating upon the Word of God. I have received a great comfort from God through His word in my personal life (2 Corinthians 1:3-4), I have received healings from God through His word (Psalm 107:20). One can introduce us something new which they have seen good and experienced good form that. God made me to stand as a living testimony for the miracles that He has performed in my life. Today is the day that we have to make a decision to walk in Word of God, for there is no guarantee for tomorrow. May our good God give all of us zeal to know about Him and be prospering in our life.
GOD BLESS YOU
