Meditation on the word of God, so that we can mature in our understanding and application of God’s word. We said this yesterday, and we are delightfully repeating it to-day. However, we must move forward in our learning, because as ” Children of the Most High God ” this is our substance for living ( our mother’s milk ).
TO-DAY, we are focusing on Wisdom; Faith; and Fellowship as additional benefits from the meditation.
WISDOM – God’s infinite wisdom. It is no wonder that those who engraft His words and thought into their hearts and minds will share in God’s wisdom. The apostle Paul wrote this instruction to believers in Colosse:
” Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. ” – Colossians 3: 16.
The Word dwell means ” to live in us and become a part of your inward being “. AS YOU HIDE GOD’S WORD IN YOUR HEART AND MEDITATE ON IT, YOU WILL LEARN AND UNDERSTAND GOD’S WAYS.
FAITH – Scripture states that without faith it is impossible to please God ( Hebrews 11: 6 ). But how can you get faith? It comes through hearing God’s word
“ Faith come by hearing, and hearing by the word of God ” ( Romans 10: 17 ).
As you memorize and meditate on God’s word; God will increase and strengthen your faith ( your love & trust ) in Him.
FELLOWSHIP – After delivering to the Disciples the commandments. He received from His heavenly Father, Jesus stated: “
He that have my commandments, and keep them, he is he that love me, and he that love me shall be love by my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him “- John 14: 21.
As you learn the commands of Christ and meditate on them, THE LORD WILL MAKE HIMSELF KNOWN TO YOU.
