DO YOU WANT to be great in life? Then follow God’s secret for greatness. You know what that secret is? It is meditating day and night on God’s Word! In this article, I want you to see the power of meditation in God’s Word, and how it leads to greatness
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night…for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success —Josh. 1:8
THE MOST IMPORTANT habit you must develop to become great in every aspect of life is that of meditating on the Word of God day and night. At the onset of Joshua’s ministry, God told him he was to lead the children of Israel into the land of promise.
However, Joshua feared that such a task was too heavy for him to handle. He needed a secret from God that would enable him lead about six million people into Canaan land; and God did give Joshua the secret key! What was that secret? It’s found in Joshua 1:8.
In that passage, God assured Joshua he wouldn’t lose any battle to the enemy or be discouraged as long as he meditates on this book of the law day and night. This secret will also work for you today.
If you will meditate on “this book of the law,” day and night, you will become very great on earth. To a New Testament believer, “this book of the law” is the Word of God—especially His New Testament promises.
CONFESSION: The master secret to greatness is meditating day and night on the Word of God. I will do everything within me to cultivate this habit, because it is the master secret of all time!
