Spiritual Vacation

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

— Joshua 1:8

Being diligent about the intake of the Word is the key to living a life of POWER. Most Christians get saved and take a spiritual vacation. Some are on that vacation for 15 years! Can you imagine if we took a vacation for that long in the natural? We would be broke bums starving to death on a street corner. 

How is it then, that most Christian won't pick up their Bibles to study for months, even years!? For too long Christians have been going with the flow of how the world is doing things. We feel how the world feels, we do what the world does and believe the way the world believes. The end result makes us blend right in with them. You can’t tell a Christian from a non-Christian because we’re all sick, broke and living in sin. 

The answer to every problem you face is found in the Word. Will you be diligent enough to look them up? Will you recite and meditate on them day and night?

You can have the most powerful man or woman of God pray for you but if there’s no solid foundation for what you believe, you won’t be able to stand in the battle very long (Matthew 7:24-27). The victories will be short-lived and you will continue to be beaten by the devil.

The ONLY thing the devil will try to take from you is the Word of God (Mark 4:1-8). If the devil takes the Word from you, he’ll have access to ALL of you. The only way to attack the attacker is with the SWORD (Hebrews 4:12), which is the Word of God. The only way to destroy darkness is by using the LIGHT, which is Jesus (John 8:12) and Jesus revealed Himself as the Word (John 1:1-3).

If you’re sick and tired of the same mess you were in yesterday, make today the starting point. When you vacuum, meditate on a scripture. When you do the laundry, meditate on a scripture. When you’re driving to work, listen to the preaching of God’s Word. When you’re at the Gym, put on a youtube video of the preaching of God’s Word.  Let the Word saturate and devastate the worry, doubt, and fear in your life! "For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success." YOU will make your way prosperous!
