The word 'meditate' here in Joshua 1:8 is 'hagah' in Hebrew, and it can mean 'to ponder, to mutter, to utter, to speak, to talk'. Notice the word 'mouth' here? Therefore, in the context of this verse here, meditation involves your mouth.
I have been taught since young to never allow the Word of God to depart from my mouth, and I am still keeping to it. This practice has been one of the 'anchors' in this journey of faith of mine, and my spiritual 'muscles' have been tremendously built through the years. I thank God for that.
When you speak the Word of God out aloud, your ear hears it, and that's when your faith arises. Romans 10:17 says, 'So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God'.
I heard these words from the Lord for this time and season:
"There is no fear in love, because My perfect love casts out fear. Look to Me, because My love for you never fails. When everything else fails, My love never fails. This is a time to set your mind on My love for you, and set your mind on how much I love you."
Notice the words 'This is a time to set your mind on My love for you'? One way to 'set your mind on His love for you' is by meditating on God's love for you. So, go ahead! Fill your mind with God's love for you! (Philippians 4:8-9) And believe for it! Declare these verses below aloud, and let your ear hear! I have personalized each of these verses for you. Speak each of these verses - 10, 30, 60, 100 times, or even more - till you know you are walking in the fullness of each of these verses that God has given you. Amen!
