You can control your meditation through the word and the spirit Through the word now. You know You can be alone and all you're thinking about is all junk.

So when I talk about meditation here, Its well-directed meditation, Remember when God spoke to Joshua, He didn't say, and thou shalt meditate day and night. He said meditate there, and he was talking about the Word to meditate in the Word of God is to meditate in the word See. So you take some scriptures. The Spirit of God can guide your mind to those scriptures. You can write out something or if you pray and that's why I said, control your meditation through the word and the spirit When you pray another Pray in the Holy Ghost He'll. Well up some thoughts in your spirits, He'll wear up something in your mind And when he does that you have an inspiration to meditate in the direction that God's bringing to you. You know there are a number of words for meditation, but the most often use and the ones used in Psalms, 1 And also Joshua 1:8 is the word. Hagia is the most frequently used Haga all right, Hagia or mutter speak under your breath. Amen, to speaks God's Word under your breath, meditating as easy as worrying. If you can worry, you can meditate, Alright, just replace it with God's thoughts shall supply, not maybe not hope so shall Nothing can be more definite in the English vernacular.
Shall God speaks to you when you're reading the word and God says whatever good you find out of it? Take that verse and meditate sometimes just one word: Not the whole sentence will bring revival Like shall or you are sick and you memorize this verse Matthew. 8:17 himself Took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses Himself. Now sudden his value starts growing. In your mind, his worth starts to increase and all of a sudden faith rises in your heart. That'S the process of meditation. You read God's Word, you memorize God's. The part that speak to you and then all day, long, All right when you close the Bible all day long, you you, you you, the verse, you memorize you chew on it All right. You can do your work and all that, but intervals here and there you start to bring it up again. Let's say: you're a fearful person All right, very fearful. Okay, no one knows your fear, fear of disease or the future fear of losing this losing that whatever it is, Take the verse, for God, has not given us a spirit of fear But of power and of love and of a sound mind. You believe, in God, for a baby
He maketh the barren woman Psalms 11:3. He maketh the barren woman to keep house meditate on it. Meditate and the power of God's Word is such there is like see. Jesus called God's Word seed and seed germinate So what you're doing is causing the seed or whatever you are reading that seed will germinate into a harvest in your life.
If you know how to worry, Then you know how to meditate worry is a negative form of meditation. Now. What is what does it mean to meditate? What does that word mean Literally, the word meditate means to mutter. It means speaking out loud.

Chews it again Deposit it brings it up Chews it again. What is he doing? He'S just he's meditating in that grass He's he's muttering over He's, I mean he is squeezing the juice out of that thing. You know And that's what it means to meditate.

My God Shall supply all of my needs or demands. According to his riches in glory, you begin to go through every word. You go through every phrase you begin to just make this is this is not just Like reading a whole chapter, It's like taking just just a piece of it and taking that scripture just chewing on it and chewing on it. I call It in in Bible School milking the scripture and it won't. You won't get the milk out of it And, unless you're willing to chew on it long enough, Chew it and chew it and chew it and chew it and chew it And the people that will chew the word And meditate on the word are those who are Going to get the results of what it says when you do that.
