Sunday message by Gana Daniel aka Thepasserby-Why You Should Meditate On God's Words.

Joshua 1:8
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt 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.

Meditation as an act of deep thinking about something has been an age long tradition and secret to success. Just like every other exercise carried out by the body, there are benefits attached to meditating on the words of God. The words of God is true and stands the test of time and the only way to unlock the blessings attached to these words is to strictly meditate and obey them.

Here are the benefits attached to meditation on God's words.

1. God will be felt (Mat 17:1-6, Jer 29:13)
When you meditate on God's words, HE takes out time to commune with you. HIS presence is felt each time we meditate diligently on HIS words. All men who have felt the presence of God, meditated on HIS words. God's presence is not far from HIS words.

2. God will reveal HIS actions to us
"Then the LORD said, "Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do?" (Gen 18:17)

3. You labor less (Acts 13:2)
Meditation on the words of God gives you a direction and it helps you to labor less.

4. It increases your strength (Isaiah 40:30-31)

Tools needed for a life of meditation
1. A thirst and hunger for GOD (Psalm 42:1-2, 119:9,11)

2. Fervent prayers (Luke 6:12)

3. Study of the word (Joshua 1:8-9)
