Allow the Holy Spirit to Paint a Picture of Your Success


Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.

 (Joshua 1:8 NLT)


Meditation is a God-given process that causes a permanent change in your thinking. In other words, meditation transforms your thinking from ungodly thoughts and lies programmed into the mind mainly by a demon-controlled world system, to conform to thinking God’s thoughts…in an accelerated manner.

Meditation feeds the imagination and is our part in allowing the Holy Spirit to paint a vivid picture of our success and the truth of God’s Word on the canvas of our soul. You actually see and believe God’s promises before they are manifested. This all works on the principle of seedtime and harvest. When you meditate the Word of God, you are actually sowing good seed into your mind which will grow.

Meditation is what enabled Joshua and the nation of Israel to take possession of their inheritance, the Promised Land that was full of giants. He commanded them in Joshua 1:8 to meditate on His Word while they worked during the day and during the quiet hours of the night. My friend, devote time to meditating God’s Word in your heart and it will lead you into your Promised Land, too.


Father God, thank you for Your Word. I purpose to find the scriptures that fit my situation and meditate them in my heart until I can see the desired promise and believe what I have asked will come to pass. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
