The power to choose between one thing over another is a fundamental human right. Even God gave humanity that much power as He gave man the free moral will to choose between good and evil. But together with this free moral will comes a huge responsibility about the consequences of our choices. What we think and meditate on is a product of our life choices. Meditation could be likened to soaking a sponge into water. When the sponge that is soaked is subjected to pressure, it’s only obvious that water is what will ooze out of it. So is meditation. What we meditate on is what will come out when we are subjected to the pressures of life. Did you ever realise that what we choose to focus on is what is amplified in our lives? Choose to continually meditate on God’s Word before the day of hardship arrives then when it does you will not be moved.
SCRIPTURE READING: Psalm 1:2-3 But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night. [Rom. 13:8-10; Gal. 3:1-29; II Tim. 3:16.]
And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity]. [Jer. 17:7, 8.]
DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, Grant me the grace to habitually focus on your word as I meditate on it daily in Jesus Name, Amen.
