Apostle Grace Lubega
Joshua 1:8 (KJV); 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.
There is a difference between meditation and wishful thinking.
Some people spend their days dreamily envisioning things that they desire and call that meditation.
True meditation is the imprint of vision on revelation.
The wishful thinker is not a participant in the vision of that revelation.
This means that when you read a verse that says that you will lend to nations, the meditator will put himself in the middle of that experience. He will build an entire image and story around the experience of lending to nations.
He will see himself at a desk in meetings to discuss how much money he can give to a specific nation; he will see himself sign off the authorization for that money to be given. He will see himself shake hands with the authorities of that nation in acknowledgment of their mutual contract. He participates!
If you desire healing and read the scripture that says that by His stripes you were healed, you see yourself walk off a hospital bed, see yourself enjoying meals because your appetite has returned, see yourself walk about like an absolutely normal person and see yourself in the gym exercising like a healthy individual.
Meditation calls for participation by the power of vision!

GOLDEN NUGGET: True meditation is the imprint of vision on revelation. The wishful thinker is not a participant in the vision of that revelation.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. I know the power of meditation. I embrace it as wisdom from above and practise it diligently. The Bible says that we should meditate on these things and give ourselves wholly unto them. My life is patterned after this principle and by it, I see great results in my life, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
