1. THE PRIMACY OF MEDITATION
1.1. IT IS OUR ROAD MAP TO SUCCESS
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will MAKE YOUR WAY PROSPEROUS, and then YOU WILL HAVE GOOD SUCCESS.
Success is hardly ever by accident. Every sane human being longs for success. Even those who seem irritable at the mention of the word success are hardly ever resistant to good things when they happen to them. Success is sweet. Success is a GOD idea. The opposite thereof is failure. Failure is miserable. The wise diligently seek for ways to avoid failure and where it seems inevitable, they devise strategies to turn it into advantage. But their firm and final resolve is to rise above the dung hill of non performance and swim out of the putrid waters of stagnation. Stagnant waters carry diseases and an ever increasing stench.
PRAY that your hunger for good success will restored
PRAY that the gifts of GOD in you that were given to elevate you will emerge from the dust of discouragement and the rust of inactivity.
PRAY that that inspiration and enthusiasm will always find you.
2. IT IS THE UNDERWRITER OF OUR BLESSING
But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be BLESSED IN WHAT HE DOES.
Blessing IS NOT THINGS!!! Blessings and materialism are not the same. There are many who are regularly in fine apparel, on sleek wheels and dining sumptuously in fine establishments. If that is blessing, they look blessed indeed. But often what you see is debt
Blessing is the power to prosper. The glorious force that moves one forward in the good things that he does. The invisible yet evident force that propels the individual, family or nation to Godly progress and wellbeing.
3. IT IS OUR GUARANTEE TO FRESHNESS AND FRUITFULNESS
Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he MEDITATES day and night.
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its FRUIT IN SEASON in its season,
Whose LEAF also shall not wither;
And whatever he DOES SHALL PROSPER.
Nothing is as short lived and as elusive as freshness in a fallen world. Everything seems to quickly grow old and pale from the moment it is made or unveiled.
From food to ideas. Newness, though so desired and pursued vigorously, this pursuit seems to be a never ending race. Man’s artificial ways to grapple with and capture freshness seem laughable. We cane what can and freeze what can be frozen, and though usable later but it all still falls short of the one thing we desire… Freshness!
But GOD promises that when we Meditate on HIS WORD we become like a leaf that does not wither.
So, no matter what season you find yourself in right now, refresh yourself in the waters of the Word.
In life people are either fruitful or frustrated. Nothing in between. The first words that were heard by the human spirit after creation were an enabling command to “BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY, FILL THE EARTH, SUBDUE IT, DOMINATE IT.
Man fell into sin, the fall took away the enabling glory. But the command had not changed. The need to be fruitful without the might to do so became a perpetual frustration from generation to generation.
Jesus came, and the world has never been the same. He reiterated the original mandate to be fruitful
By this My Father is glorified, that you BEAR MUCH FRUIT; so you will be My disciples.
AND HE restored the Power to Prosper
“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, BEARS MUCH FRUIT; for without Me you can do nothing.
4.1. ARISE TODAY AND PROSPER AS YOU MEDITATE ON THESE PRECIOUS PROMISES ELEVATION BEGINS
The Glory of Zion
“Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth
and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
and his glory appears over you.
4.2. YOU WERE BORN TO MAKE PROGRESS – PROGRESS YOU WILL MAKE
In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will,
4 3. YOU ARE DESTINED TO WIN – WINNING WILL NOT ELUDE YOU
1 Chronicles 12:18b
Success, success to you,
and success to those who help you,
for your God will help you.”
4.4. ALL RESISTANCE TO SUCCESS IS DEFEATED – GET THE devil ON THE RUN!!! ENFORCE THAT VICTORY IN JESUS NAME!
Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he WILL FLEE FROM YOU!
