“Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; 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.”
Reading the word of God is a lifestyle. When we say lifestyle or a way of life, it’s more than a routine but it’s something you can’t live without. You do not just READ it but you LIVE it. It is like drinking water or eating. It is essential to our spiritual growth. Apart from it, Christians will slowly grow cold and die spiritually. The Bible is more than just a book but it is a love story of God and His people. We read it to know God more and to fall in love with Him more. To be apart from Him is the start of a man’s defeat.
God calls us to study His Word. Meditate on it day and night. Know it inside and out. Dig into the passages that trouble us. Ask questions, seek answers. Without that disciplined study of the Bible we cannot follow it. After we learn it, we should carefully walk according to all we have learned.
I came to a point in my life when I sought after the success this world was offering. Later, I found myself on the verge of a larger pitfall. I faced a huge wall of shame and discontentment. I realized that real success is living a life according to God’s will and teachings. Though you encounter obstacles along the way, the shout of the King will forever be yours!
God has given me enough minutes in each day, enough years in my life to accomplish what He has designed for me to complete. When I live according to His schedule I will always have enough time, enough energy, enough success, enough accomplished, enough gained, enough saved, enough fulfilled. There’s always a time for God.
