What the Lord Jesus has to say
There is nothing more rewarding than to meditate on the Lord Jesus’ Word because it brings us peace, security and certainty.
It’s not like any other word we hear or carry from our childhood, the past, words spoken by family and friends, or people around us.
The word that God has for us is not something temporary or just theoretical information, but it brings life. And I want you, Internet friend, to make good use of God’s Word. I do not want you to live it only for a certain time, but for it to be part of your entire life. We are secure when we solely depend of God’s Word and have a relationship with God!
Many people when they read the Word of God do not understand it and quickly get discouraged. They want to read in their own way. There is no need to read everything or an entire chapter or book. What you do need is to acquire life through that Word.
“Then they said to Him, “Who are You?” And Jesus said to them, “Just what I have been saying to you from the beginning.
I have many things to say and to judge concerning you, but He who sent Me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I heard from Him.”
They did not understand that He spoke to them of the Father.”(Jo.8: 25-27).
Our mouth speaks out of what our heart is filled with. The proof that the Lord Jesus was connected with the Father was in His words.
The way He depended on the Father makes me admire Him! He was perfect – God incarnated in us – but yet He did not do what He wanted, or call Himself “wonderful” assuming His Divinity. On the contrary, He was at the Father’s disposal and always connected with Him.
“… but He who sent Me is true…”
The Lord Jesus lived in truth; He had total dependence of the Father and listened to Him. He knew who sent Him. He knew He didn’t send Himself, but that God sent him. When He was among us, He did not do what He well pleased. Like we often do when we believe to have the “truth”. The only one who is true is God. When you meditate on His Word you realize you are full of flaws and the truth is only in God.
“… and I speak to the world those things which I heard from Him.”
He can judge and say anything about me, but He does not say what He thinks unless it comes from the Father… those are the words He says to the world.
This is wonderful! Because how many times you and I have said inappropriate things based on what we think? But the Lord Jesus who was continually in tune with God spoke what He heard from the Father and not what He thought He should say. Even without sin, He did not think high of Himself. He gave God all the credit.
The Lord Jesus gave all the honor and glory to God. We should be the same way in everything. He will do more in our life depending on how available we are to listen to Him. The secret is to listen to Him, to be attentive and in tune with Him. By doing so you will not commit any bad mistakes that will bring you painful consequences. Rather you will be a happy, blessed person on this earth.
I hope you meditate in your day to day. Continue to talk with God about what we talked about. Think: “Have I listened to God, or to my needs and plans? Do I say what I want or what God wants me to say? ”
Be attentive to the voice of God.

Hallo Mrs Viviane I find this topic very interesting , meditating on the word of God brings good success in everything we do.This is the advice God gave to Joshua.On the other hand when we meditate on the problems the end result will be stress and defeat.No wonder why our Lord Jesus operated in such strong faith because He kept hearing what the Father was saying, as we know faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
