Day 20

Yesterday we looked at the difference between a Greek worldview versus a Hebrew worldview. This is an important distinction; we want to adopt a Hebrew point of view when it comes to speaking the Word.

The Greek view is based on knowledge; have you heard the expression "knowledge is power?" While there is some truth to the expression, the Hebrew view is based on practice. While the Greek view goes to work on your mind, that is your mental understanding, the Hebrew view is simply the call to be obedient. Success is based on obedience and practice. Joshua 1: 8 instructs the reader: "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." The word "meditate" means to mutter, that is to speak. You are to make your Biblical confessions day and night; they should be on your lips throughout the day as you are able. Why? Simple; because then you will prosper (this means to be a success and who doesn't want to be a success?).
