“This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth; but you shall meditate therein day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success.” Joshua 1:8
A conversation is not always dialogue or a monologue. A conversation can be reading...Reading your Bible is a private meditative conversation between you and GOD. You cannot meditate on the Word without first reading it. The Bible is written to us. GOD made sure we had a genuine guide for blessing us, to teach us, to forgive, and save us. The Bible is non-fictional. It is divine factual collections of true events and situations. Designed to open our personal world of revelations.
The effect of meditating on the Word of God and speaking it is so that we may “observe to do according to all that it is written therein” and that will make it possible to “make [our] way prosperous, and then [we] shall have good success.” The prosperity that this is talking about isn’t just financial prosperity but the life of the person who first READS it, then OBSERVE it, and finally to KNOW Ithat what is written in it.
Reading your Bible is a ”SILENT PERSONAL CONVERSATION.”
This conversation is not by the WORLD’S STANDARD but by GOD’s STANDARDS.
Remember, scriptures are God-breathed…that is, it is inspired by God Himself but it must be breathed out by human agents to reprove, correct, train, and equip every believer for “every good work.” When the Word of God is read out loud, it unleashes God’s own power (Rom 1:16) and then there is an assurance that His Word will achieve what He sent it out for (Isaiah 55:11). The best perfect part of private silent worship is the reading of the Word because it is perfect. Question...
When was the last time you had a scheduled CONVERSATION with GOD via in His Word?
Dear Heavenly FATHER,
Thank you for your Word being the revelatory conversations we need to be successful your way. May our new Bible conversations with you inspire us to be better with you. Amen in JESUS name.
