You are a spirit being, you have a soul and you live in a body. At New Birth, your spirit became regenerated by God while your soul and your body remained the same. Therefore, for you to grow spiritually and fulfil your destiny, you need to renew your mind. A mind that is not renewed is the greatest and the darkest prison for a recreated spirit. When you renew your mind with the word of God, it begins to cooperate with the Holy Spirit and makes the work of God easy in your life.
God gave you the faculty of imagination to aid your faith walk. When your soul is prospering, it rids your imagination of fearful pictures. Your imagination begins to create comforting pictures of the promise of God and faith becomes an unconscious action. Joshua1:8 revealed that the word must first be in your MOUTH and then you must learn to SAY IT FIRST TO YOURSELF and TO SITUATIONS. That is how to meditate on the word and fulfil the second condition.
The amount and quality of meditation you do on the word of God will determine how sharp the picture of the promises of God will be in your imagination. The ten spies (Numbers Chapter 13 and 14) saw themselves as grasshoppers and became victims. Caleb and Joshua saw themselves as victors and they overcame. The quality of your meditation on the promises of God will determine the quality of your results in life.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the heart to discipline myself to study and meditate on your word daily until I attain to Your purpose in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
