Start Your Day Right For Good Success
Meditate The Commandments Of God
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. Then all will go well with you. You will receive many good things. Joshua 1:8 NKJV
Start your day right by meditating the Commandments of God.
What are the Commandments of God?
1. You shall have no other gods before me
2. You shall not make idols
3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain
4. Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy
5. Honor your father and your mother
6. You shall not murder
7. You shall not commit adultery
8. You shall not steal
9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor
10. You shall not covet
These Commandments were given to Moses for us to have so we can live our lives pleasing to the Lord and so that by doing so He will bless us. A lot of people will say that these Commandments are not relevant to our days now but the truth is that, it is just as relevant now in our days more so than ever before.
How do you start your day?
Do you even spend some time thanking God for the blessings that you have?
It doesn’t have to be a long talk or conversation with God but just thinking of the goodness of God in your life and thanking Him will make a huge difference on how your day will go.
The Commandments of God is meant to give us guidance on how we should live our lives. Just imagine yourself getting up in the morning and you are planning to go somewhere and you don’t know the way you don’t have the map, how do you suppose to get to where you’re going? You can’t just wander when once on the road hoping that someone will take you or point to you to where you are going, you need to make a plan. You need a guide, a map a direction and goals to reaching to your destination.
The same thing happens in our daily lives we can make all the plans but unless we start the point A to point B the right way our days will be in chaos.
I have observed families who have children and parents taught them how to start the day even before making up their beds by praying and thanking God for the blessings that they have. It’s amazing how the children behaved also in a different way. They are more responsive to their parents accordingly. They have a much mature approach to their surroundings. I have noticed that even at young ages they are already responsible in their daily chores. That’s the power of starting your day right even with your families.
It is very simple, meditate on the word of God and the goodness and faithfulness of God in your life daily and you will be blessed all the days of your life. Because your outlook of life is different than the worldly mindset.
So what are you thankful for today? How about start by thanking God for another day and still breathing. How about the roof on your head that is not leaking? How about the food on the table? How about your family? And there’s so much more you can be thankful for. There is the sunshine, the beauty surrounding us, just meditate on those and your day will be alright.
Please don’t forget to follow and connect with me. I will be glad to have you as part of my family here.
Thank you so much for reading this. Be blessed, inspired, encouraged and loved.
