CREATING AN ATMOSPHERE FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN THE WORD OF GOD.
Often times we have some things we believe and stay on. Many times our mediations tells what becomes of us. As a man it is quite easy to meditate on the system and in the fear of the world. We can keep talking and meditating on how bad the economy is, we can become so knowledgeable in it and have less thought of what God is saying about it for us and our nation. But we need to change our mind and create an atmosphere for the word of God which we believe. How to do this, we will highlight them shortly in a practical and revelatory way. Revelation of the word of God birth wisdom and direction for rightly living when acted upon. We shouldn’t expect to sow in mediating on wrong thing and expect the move of God on it rightly.
We should carefully and intentionally have what we meditate upon by creating an atmosphere for it through mediation, seeking for direction and giving it our full focus, these are what we will look at.
Let’s kick off straight…
1. CREATING THE ATMOSPHERE BY MEDITATION.
Joshua 1:8 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.
Psalms 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he MEDITATE DAY AND NIGHT.
The word of God should be like a medicine to us. Take for example, a doctor gave you a drug prescription, day and night like they write 1-1 and you know your health depends on it. I believe you will follow the prescription given and take the medicine day and night. Brethren our lives depends on the word. It should be our meditation day and night. It’s a deep thought that appears bare before you
Proverbs 23:7 For as he THINKETH IN HIS HEART, SO IS HE: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
If thought can be point to how a man is, meditation also can shape and bring your believe in God’s word also. Some many times we know how to take deep thought on problems or challenges that we have, we even make big the challenges and tell people about it and how big they have in other to get a self pitied arms, and what we meditate upon begin to show up in reality. But truly if we can learn to think that way with the word of God the better for us. Let me help you on what mediation is, how you stay on what God said to you, you keep thinking about it, having a deep thought on it, till it hit your spirit, don’t stop until you have the full grasp of it, in fact keep staying more on it, it will be opened more and better before you. You begin to see the possibility of God’s hand and fulfilment upon His Word for you. When any thing contrary comes close you just raise up that meditation and stick to it. You’re creating that atmosphere so strong that nothing can break.
David knew what meditation is, he remember it and meditate upon the goodness of God.
Psalms 63:6 When I REMEMBER thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
It means we go on to meditate and sleep with what the Lord says to us, it can even rise to a point where you begin to dream about your meditation, it will appear so real to you. That’s how God word is.
2. SEEKING FOR DIRECTION THROUGH HIS WORD.
Jeremiah 15:16 THY WORDS WERE FOUND, AND I DID EAT THEM; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.
The word of God must be found, and we must eat it, and feast on it, that’s how to eat the word of God. You make more diligent search.
When God gives a word we must learn to seek more on that word, looking for scriptural references that relate with it and then we meditate more on it. When seek more light on what God said, what we are doing is to consciously create an atmosphere for faith in our heart to believe that word more. This is very important. And when you find it, you stay on it, then you create an atmosphere for it.
3. CREATE AN ATMOSPHERE FOR WHAT GOD SAID BY FOCUSING ON HIS WORD.
Psalms 119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
You won’t know how sweet a food is by smelling it, you know how sweet it is by eating it. This is done by focusing on the word of God. You place your heart stayed on it. You give your attention to it.
Proverbs 4:20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
Proverbs 7:24 Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and ATTEND TO THE WORDS of my mouth.
Psalms 34:5 THEY LOOKED unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
When we set our attention on the word of God, we create an atmosphere for that word and even for it to come to pass. The power of focus is strong. Some people can use it wrongly, but we must learn to use it rightly by doing it the word’s way. You stick to that word God said to you. You focus strongly on it.
Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, WHOSE MIND IS STAYED ON THEE: because he trusteth in thee.
The secret is to stay on the Lord, you stay on the Lord by staying on His Word. A man’s word represent him. God and His word are one. You stay on God by staying on His Word, it’s the power of focus on Him. Your heart get stayed and unshakable on the word of God.
You give your attention to it, by making it become personal, you know people can take things personal, take the word of God personal, the word He said to you.
When we meditate on the word and seek more on the word and also focus on what God said to us, we are creating a strong unbreakable atmosphere for that word of God in our lives. Your believe in Him becomes unshakable. This build in us a more heart to believe in the word of God with this atmosphere created under the guide of His Word. You can’t live in a place without an atmosphere, no place on earth is without its own atmosphere at which it operate. When you create an atmosphere of unbelief, you will hardly believe anything. An atmosphere created in a place determines what can stay, what you can sow in the place. It tells what can live in the place. Even when you sow in such atmosphere it won’t yield the way it ought to. What atmosphere are you creating with the word of God for you? What will live around you will have to be able to stand the atmosphere created by the word of God. An atmosphere created is a live formed.
