From Meditation to Prosperity!

Joshua 1: 7-9 says “Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.  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.  Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” This passage tells how to be successful. If you meditate on God’s Word, God promises in this passage that you WILL BE SUCCESSFUL in versse 8. So many of my friends keep on saying they want to be successful in their lives. And no doubt they mean it! But let me ask you this: what are you doing to be successful? The bible talks about being successful. It tells what to do to be successful. But how many of us are doing what it says? Meditating on God’s Word day and night is not as hard as we make it out to be. We can worry and be stressed out day & night. Well, I learned from Andrew Wommack that worrying is meditating! Webster’s 1828 dictionary defines meditate this way “To think on; to revolve in the mind.” I think of it this way: a revolving door simply goes around and around constatly. Our minds do the same thing! What are you thinking on constatly? The concerns of your life? Or God’s Word? If you are focusing on God’s Word then God promises to make your way prosperous! What seeds are you planting in your mind? Seeds of worry, discontent, and the like? Or Seeds of success, wellness, and things like that? When a seed is planted in the ground and fed and watered it will grow! But what will it grow into? Our minds are the same way. What we meditate on is what we will receive! I am meditating on things related to success and wellness! And because of that I am already healthy and successful! Not everyone has seen it, but in time that will change. I’m not concerned in the least with what most people think! I have a few people (5 to be exact) that I am concerned with what they say. At the top of this list is Jesus Christ! The other 4 know who they are and I am not going to name them. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: you are like the 5 people you spend the most time with! This is not my saying, but is something I learned in 2014. Who are you listening to? What are you thinking about? If who you are listening to and what you are thinking about does not reflect what you want to see in 2015, then you will not be successful! I don’t like to be harsh, but some of you need to really think about what you are meditating on! You say you want to be successful. You say you want to lose that 10-100 pounds. But what are you doing to make that a reality? It starts in your mind! In 2013 I made up my mind that I was going to reach Diamond in Max International and that nothing was going to stop me! Proverbs 23:7 says “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” What are you thinking about?
