Prosperous In All Things
Blessed is the man that
walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners,
nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the
Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a
tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his
season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper (Psalm 1:1-3).
How prosperous do you want to be? How
glorious do you want your life to be? If you’d delight yourself in the Lord,
and meditate on His words regularly or frequently, you’ll be like a tree
planted by the rivers of water! You’ll bring forth fruit in due season; your
leaves will not wither; and you’ll prosper in ALL things!
Isaiah 58:14 says, “Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of
the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.” You
delight yourself in the Lord by joyfully acting on the Word and living by it!
Meditation on the Word is God’s recipe for
success. It’s the secret to a victorious, successful, struggle-free life and
extraordinary prosperity. The
Apostle Paul instructed Timothy
to give himself totally to the Word: “Meditate
upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear
to all” (1 Timothy 4:15). He knew
if he meditated on the Word long enough, the necessary result would be that his
profiting—his prosperity and increase—would appear to all men.
The man Isaac was one of those in the Bible
who walked in tremendous prosperity. But when you study his life, you would
discover he was a spiritually minded man who spent a great deal of time
meditating. The Bible says Isaac went out to the field in the evening to
meditate (Genesis 24:63). That was the secret behind his prosperity. Meditation
will give you good success! It will make you wise in your dealings in business,
your finances, family, relationships, and
other areas of life.
Prayer Dear Father,
I live in your Word, by your Word and through your Word today, assured of total
prosperity and increasing grace as I delight myself in you! I thank you for
leading me always to triumph as you guide me in the path of every increasing
glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
