What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wrote this book at the request of another minister who asked that I write concerning how to live victoriously in the Lord Jesus Christ. We were seeing so many believers falling to the lusts of the flesh and the wiles of the devil that she thought it good for me to share some of what I had learned by the Word of God and by experience about living for Christ, and how to over-come when tempted. Special emphasis was to be placed upon steps to growing in Christ Jesus from the baby stage to spiritual maturity. While I do not even attempt to suggest that I know all and have arrived, (for none of us are there yet. We are all still learning), it has been on my heart for a while to share some of what I have learned about the awesome power of abiding daily in God's Word, Bible Meditation, how to deal with the flesh, what it means to walk in the Spirit, living the Spirit-filled life, how to get back up if you fall, and developing intimacy with the Lord. This book was written to help believers grow!!!
Meditation in God’s Word is the process by which we change our thinking to line up and come into agreement with God’s Thoughts, which are higher than our thoughts.
Meditation is not the enemy’s idea or creation. That liar never created anything. What he does is tries to contradict and use God’s principles in reverse so that man can in various ways destroy himself/herself. These are called the ways of death. (Proverbs 14:12, 16:25)
God gave us the process of meditation for the purpose of aligning our thoughts with His Thoughts, thereby enabling us to live as He would have us live – yes, even by His life while in our natural bodies. However, the adversary has attempted to use this Biblical Principle against man. Through eastern religions of various kinds many have been misguided and deceived into all kinds of mind altering and hallucinating states which are not godly and really, in the end, lead to the destruction of those who practice the negative form of the principle of meditation.
God gave us the positive way – which is the right way, the proper way, the safe way and the most beneficial way – of meditation, which is filling our thoughts with the Thoughts of God.
The adversary has told many that to meditate is to empty one’s mind of any thought. This is gross error. We must remember that the mind is the gateway to the heart, the spirit. And when you just sit idly by emptying your mind and releasing it to whatever is out there floating in the universe, you may be setting it up to be taken over by evil spirits – foreign spirits that would attempt to control, manipulate and deceive you, and ultimately destroy your soul. Don’t empty your mind. Many of us don’t have much in there now. Don’t empty it. Fill it with the Word of God.
When the Lord spoke to us of meditation, He spoke of it in relation to His Word. Notice the following Scriptures:
“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.”
Notice here that God tells Joshua that he is to meditate in the law of the Lord (the Word of God) day and night. He was to fill his mind with God’s Word, not empty it. He was not to sit down, get comfortable and think about nothing. He was to give his mind to the Word of God.
Fill your mind with God’s Word. Now let us look at another Scripture concerning meditation.
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law (Word) of the Lord; and in His law (Word) doth he meditate day and night.”
I trust that you can see once again God admonishing us to meditate in His Word day and night. He does not ask us to empty our minds. Instead He tells us to fill our thoughts with the Word of the Lord. So meditation is thinking God’s Word and thinking based upon the Word. And the results of meditation are manifold, beneficial and indeed glorious and life transforming.
Now that we have established the fact that meditation is thinking God’s Word, let us now look at how to practically do it. First let us note what it means to meditate.
The word meditate in both Joshua 1:8 and Psalms 1:1-2 come from the Hebrew word, Hagah. According to James Strong’s Concordance of the Bible, Hagah means the following:
1. To muse
2. To mutter
3. To speak
4. To imagine
5. To ponder
6. To think.
Let us look at what these words mean to gain a better understanding of their operations.
