《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” (Jos 1:8)
Meditation one: Have you heard of the “prosperity theology” that has recently become popular around the churches? They think that since we are the children of the King of Kings, God will definitely deliver “prosperity”. Their teaching emphasizes abundant wealth, flourishing career, elevated position, year-round success, and good health. Be careful! This is not the same as Jesus asked us to deny ourselves and take up the cross every day to follow Him. We follow the example of the Lord, that though He was rich, yet for our sake He became poor, so that we through His poverty might become rich (2Co 8: 9).
Meditation two: Do you long for your spiritual renewal and growth? You need the Word of God as your daily spiritual food, so that our lives can be renewed, cultivated, and nourished by the Word of God. At all times, we need the word of God, because the word of God is a lamp to our feet, and a light for our path. Want to be a blessed person in God’s sight? Psalm said that blessed is the one whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on His law day and night. (Psa 1: 2)
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank You for giving Your precious Word—the Bible. Your Word is the spirit and the life. As soon as your words are revealed, they shine through the darkness, bring light, and give comfort and strength! Please help me, though always busy. I will keep my daily Bible reading and let your words guide my daily life. I pray in the precious name of Jesus. Amen!
