8-This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.
Notes verse 8 — This has become one of my all time favorite verses in the Word of God. We are commanded by God to keep His Word always within us. The word meditate here means to murmur. Murmur means to talk about or gossip about the Word all the time. Why should we do this? First, God commanded it. Second, it will help you remember the Word of God. We will learn how to live the way God intended if we are careful to follow what the Word says to do. If we do these things, then we can receive the promise from God that our lives will be prosperous and successful in the eyes of God. How often do you talk about the Word of God? How much time do you invest in learning the Word of God? How would you define a successful life in the eyes of God? Spend time today evaluating your walk with God and be honest with yourself. God wants you to be what He called you to be.
