Are You Chewing Your Food?
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. – Joshua 1:8 (KJV)
Meditation on the Word brings us good success. Most think this means to memorize the Word. This means to mutter it slowly to yourself. It means to chew on it and chew on it like a cow chews his cud. We can’t just read the Word. We have to digest it. The Word is our spiritual food, and if we eat it whole, we will get a stomachache.
