Do you want to me prosperous and successful?

Of course, you do!

Prosperous and successful. No one will reject that offer.

Having a prosperous and successful life is the dream of every human on the planet.

Money. Cars. Trips. A gazillion things to own

That may seem like a life of prosperity and successes.

But, I have to admit. That is not true prosperity.

Frankly, true prosperity and success the way God intended it to be can only be achieved by following God’s plan.

Here is why: Read Joshua 1:8 (New International Version)

“Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”

In the Message bible, the same verse is paraphrased this way:

“And don’t for a minute let this Book of The Revelation be out of mind. Ponder and meditate on it day and night, making sure you practice everything written in it. Then you’ll get where you’re going; then you’ll succeed.”

Think about it: Ponder. Meditate. Reflect. Memorize.

These are key words that will help you be successful in life.

But not just any self-help book or philosophy to contemplate. It should be the Word of God – The Bible.

That is why we encourage you today to memorize scripture.

You may say, “I don’t believe you.”

Well, you don’t have to believe me.

Believe in God’s Word.

God blesses those who obey His commands.

But how will we know if we do not read.

And how will we retain if we do not memorize.

So instead of wishful thinking, memorize the scriptures today.

Then, it will not depart from your mind and, thus, your mouth.

And you will live a prosperous and successful life.

 

 

In Him,

Scripture memorisation techniques

For those who want to internalise God’s word, I will be sharing my observations from the scriptures and tips that will help you to memorise the word of God.

“Chapter ones” remembering this could help you remember Joshua 1:8 and Ps1:1-3 ,Jer1:12  John1:1 in regard to the word of God.

8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe 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.Josh1:8

Psalms 1:

Book One: Psalms 1 — 41The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly

1 Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;

2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.

3 He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.

Ps1:1-3

12 Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.” Jer1:12

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John1:1

( “v16s”) This could help you to remember Col3:16 and Jer15:16

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Col3:16

 

16 Your words were found, and I ate them, And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; For I am called by Your name, O LORD God of hosts. Jer15:16

Chapter “4s” will help you remember Matt4:4 and Prov4:20-23 and Heb4:12

Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ Matt4:4

20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.

21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart;

22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.

23 Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.

12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2Tim2:15

8 The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.” Isa40:8

10 ” For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater,

11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. Isa55:10-11

“12s”

12 Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.” Jer1:12

12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.Heb4:12

12 I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth More than my necessary food.Job23:12

Memorising, confessing and teaching the word ( the phrase  ‘many imagery’ will remind you of this scripture). or number of man:6 for Deut6:6

6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.

7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.

8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.

9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Deut6:6-9

Dive into the Depths

Charles H. Spurgeon

“But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.”

Luke 2:19

There was an exercise, on the part of this blessed woman, of three powers of her being: her memory — she kept all these things; her affections — she kept them in her heart; her intellect — she pondered them; so that memory, affection, and understanding, were all exercised about the things which she had heard. Beloved, remember what you have heard of your Lord Jesus, and what he has done for you; make your heart the golden pot of manna to preserve the memorial of the heavenly bread whereon you have fed in days gone by.

Let your memory treasure up everything about Christ which you have either felt, or known, or believed, and then let your fond affections hold him fast for evermore. Love the person of your Lord! Bring forth the alabaster box of your heart, even though it be broken, and let all the precious ointment of your affection come streaming on his pierced feet. Let your intellect be exercised concerning the Lord Jesus. Meditate upon what you read: stop not at the surface; dive into the depths. Be not as the swallow which toucheth the brook with her wing, but as the fish which penetrates the lowest wave.

Abide with your Lord: let him not be to you as a wayfaring man, that tarrieth for a night, but constrain him, saying, “Abide with us, for the day is far spent.” Hold him, and do not let him go. The word “ponder,” means to weigh. Make ready the balances of judgment. Oh, but where are the scales that can weigh the Lord Christ? “He taketh up the isles as a very little thing:” — who shall take him up? “He weigheth the mountains in scales” — in what scales shall we weigh him? Be it so, if your understanding cannot comprehend, let your affections apprehend; and if your spirit cannot compass the Lord Jesus in the grasp of understanding, let it embrace him in the arms of affection.
