Turn on the Light! 21 October This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
Just because you cant see something doesnt mean it isnt there. For example, you can look out your back window on a moonless night when its dark as pitch, and you wont be able to see your patio. But that doesnt mean your patio is gone. It simply means you cant see it. You need to turn on the light. Sometimes we become concerned that we cant see Gods promises coming to pass in our lives. But that doesnt mean His Word is of no effect. We just cant see it because we havent spent enough time in the Word of God for the light to dawn in our hearts. But if well start meditating on those promises, the Bible says, you will observe. In other words, youll start to see! Let me show you what I mean. Perhaps God has instructed you to be completely debt free. But you dont have enough cash yet to buy everything you need. Instead of meditating on the problem and thinking, Im afraid not to borrow money, Im afraid Ill never be able to afford to buy anything, you make a change. You start meditating on what God said. You think, Jesus said, Give and it shall be given to you again. I wonder what would happen if I applied that principle? If fear tries to rise up (and I assure you it will), just slap it down. You dont have to be afraid. When the yeah-but-what-ifs come up, just go back over what the Word says again. Begin to see how your life would change if you became a giver. Let the Holy Spirit use the Word to paint a picture of that promise coming to pass in your life. It will take awhile, but if you do this long enough, giving will start looking like the only intelligent thing for you to do. Courage will overwhelm your fear. Youll find yourself saying, God said Hed never leave me or forsake me! He said Hed meet my needs! He said if Id give, it would be given to me again. So praise God, Ill act on that. Ill cross over into the promised land and be debt free! So what happened? What changed? You did. You turned on the light!Jeremiah 26-27; Psalm 75I meditate on the Word of God and contemplate all His ways. Psalm 119:15
