Our love for the Bible is a clear indicator of our spiritual health. If we are sick we lose our appetite for food. Same with our spirit. The Bible is Jesus in written form. He is the manna from Heaven. To meditate is to ‘chew’ the Word one verse at a time, with our mind. As we rethink a verse, over & over, we digest the Word into our spirit where it becomes revelation. This is what makes us fruitful. We become planted like a tree by the river of the Word & so bear fruit all the time. We become influential in peoples world transforming their lives. Healing flows from the Word within.
Instead of being presumptuous & saying this is what we ‘will do,’ make plans, but surrender them to God so He can change them, enhance them or stop them. THIS is how He is Lord of our life. Prov 3:6 says if we commit (surrender) our ways to Him, He will direct our paths (direction, timing, connections) & give us good success. Make plans, take steps, work hard, but place it all in the hands of God in prayer and declaration. He brings success!
