WEEK 4b (Page 18) - STUDY REVIEW


CHOOSE THE  CORRECT ASPECTS OF MEDITATING ON GOD & HIS WORD:
        ___ You try to determine what God is saying to you by studying His word, contemplating it and
                thinking on it so it really sinks in, and by asking key questions.
        ___ You talk to God about His word and ask Him to reveal to you what He is saying.
        ___ You take a yoga class so that you can learn eastern religion meditation.
        ___ You learn to be sensitive to God's Holy Spirit and learn to sense what He places in your
                heart, especially during your prayer and fellowship time with Him.
        ___ You learn to ask "What does or should this look like in my life" or "How can I do this"
        ___ After you sense what God is saying, you go off into your day feeling more spiritual because
                you heard God speaking to you or leading you, and you leave it at that.
        ___ True and effective meditating on God and His word takes you from hearing from God
                through His word to applying & doing it in your life. This is loving & following God.

GOD'S WORD TELLS US THAT IF WE ARE CAREFUL TO FOLLOW HIM & HIS WORD, WE WILL BE PROSPEROUS & SUCCESSFUL (Joshua 1:8). GOD'S DEFINITION OF SUCCESS & PROSPERITY INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:
        ___ You will get the finest of houses and cars and clothes,...
        ___ God measures success & prosperity in terms of obedience and faithfulness to Him.
        ___ Your ministry for Him will be successful in the ways people measure success: large numbers
                of people, large fancy buildings, prestige and status among Christians,...
        ___ Your relationship with God will be increasingly closer and more intimate, you will grow
                more one with Him, and the abundant joy & peace & life of Jesus will fill your soul.
        ___ God will mold and shape your heart & character to be more and more like Jesus, and it will
                be hard to tell you apart from Jesus when God is finished with you.
