It is good when we set times to sit quietly and think about the goodness of Jesus Christ and the many things He had done for us. First, it was a privilege to be born and it is more of a greater privilege to be born again. This opportunity and promise are given to every human. The Bible tells us ‘not many wise are called not many noble’. No man can come to the Father except the Holy Spirit draw them. Don’t you see how privilege we are to be called to be apart of the kingdom of God? As born again believers we have royalty in our blood. It doesn’t come of corruptible seed but incorruptible by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Word of God.
We breathe in oxygen freely from the atmosphere God prepared. Even the plants exhale or give off oxygen as God ordained it. We don’t have to pay for it. As we exhale carbon dioxide, the plants receive it freely They have no thought concerning the value and the source of the precious commodity they need to survive. God in His infinite wisdom have set this cycle in motion. The supernatural God has fashioned nature in such perfection. Isn’t this something for us to rejoice about?
We are capable of believing the unseen. We are even able to speak them into reality. We are no longer hopeless, we are living by faith. Why faith? Faith becomes the engine that pleases God. “Without faith it is impossible to believe God” We have experienced Him at work in our lives. We face trials but we will not carry them, we give the burdens to Jesus Christ. He told us “Cast your care upon me” He say it, we believe and operate in faith so that He can bring it to pass.
As we meditate on God’s goodness we can’t help but smile when we remember how easy God had solved a difficult problem that was standing before us. Our moments of meditation brings revelation of something new and brings memory to pass testimonies. Psalm 104: 34 “My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the Lord” This will increase our joy so we can be happy in the Lord always.
Our meditation also helps us to grow spiritually. David told us in Psalm 119: 99 “I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation” As we meditate on the testimonies of the Lord we gain wisdom. Psalm 19: 7b “The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple” As we reminisce on the knowledge of these testimonies of Jesus Christ and what He is doing for us, our understanding shall expand and we will strive to excel in the wisdom of kingdom principles. When God spoke to Joshua in the book of Joshua 1: 8b “thou shall meditate therein day and night’ He was showing Joshua the importance of meditating on His words. May we always meditate and may our meditation be sweet in Jesus Christ.
