MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to
do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
fellowship with God is meant to last the whole day. If we secure the presence of God through "meditation" on His Word in our morning watch [inner chamber], we will be brought closer to the experience of the man of God in the first Psalm: "Blessed
is the man whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law doth he meditate day and night."
Workers and leaders of God's people need meditation even more than others, if they are to train others, and also keep
their own "unbroken communication" with the only source of strength and blessing. Let your prayer and expectation be first of all that your meditation may be true worship, the living surrender of your heart to God's Word in His Presence.
____...."How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law [Word] of the LORD, and in His law [Word] he meditates
day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers".... Psalms 1:1-3 NASB
