Meditating on God’s Word

We are supposed to speak about God’s Word and be absorbed in it all the time to do what it says. The LORD told Joshua “this book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth; but you shalt meditate in it day and night, that you mayest observe to do according to all that is written in it: for then you will make your way prosperous and then you will have good success.” (1) God commanded Joshua to meditate on God’s Word all the time. When we meditate on God’s Word, we recite it in our mind and recite it verbally; it’s in our memory always. (2) When we make God’s Word our preoccupation, we can have a prosperous occupation—living the way God wants us to. Today, begin to meditate on God’s Word all the time.

(1) Joshua 1:8
(2) Psalm 143:5; Psalm 35:28; Psalm 1:2

The Word of God Is Jesus Christ

The personal revelation of Jesus Christ, instead of another person’s words, should determine our obedience to God. No one else’s word should change what God tells us.

Once, God told a prophet not to eat, drink, or return the same way he came. However, a lying prophet convinced this prophet to return to the lying prophet’s house and eat and drink. While they were eating, God spoke through the previously lying prophet and said, “Because you have disobeyed the mouth of the LORD, and have not kept the commandment which I commanded you but came back and ate and drank, you will not be buried in the graves of your ancestors. When the disobedient prophet left the lying prophet’s house, a lion killed him, and his body was left on the road. (1)

God’s Word does not come from “man…but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.” (2) No one else, not a preacher, minister, or angel should change what God has told us through Jesus Christ. (3)

What has God told us? We only have to look in the Bible to see! It is plain and simple. (4) Jesus is the son of God, is God, and is the only way to God. (5) The disobedient prophet followed another word like we can follow another gospel, another way, or another Jesus. Yet, there is no other Jesus, way, or gospel. We must confess that Jesus is Lord to be saved. (6) Plain and simple.
