Virtually everyone at one point or the other have visited the hospital and we were given some medications to take in order to help our health. At that moment you’re placed on a regiment on some certain meals that could aid your medications. Now, we often see doctors make some small notes on the drug by either writing 1-1 or 1-1-1 or 2-2. We are used to this words as the case may be. We obey the instructions given to us by the doctor to help our health. We could even get angry when we missed the prescription given to us. Some of us may go as wide as setting alarms in other to take our drugs. For example
The 1-1-1 which means one in the morning, one in the afternoon and one in evening. We ensure we don’t miss the target of the prescription the doctor gave to us.
Beloved, do you know that this is how the word of God is to us? When scriptures says to meditate on the word day and night. It means one of those prescriptions given by the doctor, the 1-1. It is to be taken day and night. There is no revelation on this, we don’t give revelation on drugs given to us by doctors. In fact some of us just stay humble. We just obey. From the guide of this word let’s see.
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.
We see again,
Psalms 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and IN HIS LAW DOTH HE MEDITATE DAY AND NIGHT.
1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and WHATSOEVER HE DOETH SHALL PROSPER.
You see it says to meditate on it day and night. Two scriptures telling us that. We know that by the mouth of two or three witnesses a word is made established. We saw the witnesses of Joshua and David.
2 Corinthians 13:1 This is the third time I am coming to you. In the MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES SHALL EVERY WORD BE ESTABLISHED.
Now, take this to be like your doctor is telling you right now, that you need to read the word of God day and night, 1-1 in other for your body to be whole. You need to take this drug in other to stay healthy. I just imagine how we will change when doctors truly say to us “the only medication you need is the word of God day and night” I know some of us will like to obey in other to stay alive or healthy. We will obey because the doctor can tell us by profession what we need to take to survive or stay healthy. We will obey because our survival lies on the word the doctor gave us.
Now, the Lord said to meditate on His word day and night. It is day and night. You know you won’t like to miss any of your drugs at every prescription of the doctor. So do the same to the word of God. Our lives depends on the word, just like the drug prescription the doctor give to you. This is what the scriptures call finding the word by meditation and also searching deep into the truth of the word of God. This brings health to the flesh.
Proverbs 4:21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
4:22 FOR THEY ARE LIFE UNTO THOSE THAT FIND THEM, AND HEALTH TO ALL THEIR FLESH.
That word health means medicine. If the word of God is medicine then it can make healthy our bodies. It is medicine to all our flesh. Looking at this scriptures they tell us our prosperity in God. We will prosper by meditating on God’s word. When we make diligent the word of God in our lives. It will give life to us and also whatsoever we do we shall prosper. The word of God is not to be taken in a day alone, if we do we are not obeying the prescription given to us and that will make us not to be healthy, it is to be taken day and night. When you see the word of God like a prescribed medicine that will affect your flesh and help you grow spiritually you will keep on it day and night because your life depend on it. Follow that prescription given to you and you will see the result, like we always see the good result when we obey the doctor’s prescription. It will affect and make better our bodies and make us spiritually healthy, even physically healthy because it is health to all our flesh. Follow God’s prescription.
