We begin learning in the womb. We hear people talking. We become familiar with the voice of our mother, and those she regularly interacts with. We feel the feelings our mother feels. As a spiritual being, though we are still in the womb we are learning the ways of this world before we are even born.
Every day of our lives we are being fed information and instruction by the world, being educated in the ways and system that is acceptable to the world we live in. We are being trained in the world’s system of beliefs, and in the world’s morality. We are in essence being programmed with corrupt programming from a corrupt operating system designed by a corrupt programmer, a corrupt god; the god of this world, our Adversary, Satan.
When we start our day with a Daily Recitation from the WORD Of GOD, we are then setting our programming to begin with Truth from the incorrupt programming of our Creator. When we end our day with a Daily Recitation, it is like cleansing our programming from the world’s operating system and resetting it for the night. We are then instructing ourselves in the WORD Of GOD; daily if we do this only in the morning or evening, twice a day if we do so at both the morning and the evening. If we are wise, we will also use our Daily Recitation whenever we feel ourselves getting off balance in the way we are behaving, in the way we are thinking, or even in the way we are feeling.
By reciting the WORD Of GOD we are instructing ourselves in the Way of Righteousness, in accordance with the WORD Of GOD. Psalm 1:1-2, which is part of my Daily Recitation, tells us:
Psalm 1:1-2 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
Our delight is to be in the law (Torah, precepts, statutes, teaching) of the LORD. We are instructed by our LORD Jesus Christ to pray: “Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
Ask yourself, “Where do I find instruction in the Ways of the Kingdom Of GOD? How do I learn to live according to the Way the Kingdom Of GOD works? What are the customs of the Kingdom Of GOD? What are the laws, rules, and regulations by which the Kingdom Of GOD operates?”
When Almighty GOD sent the Israelites into the land He promised them, what were His Instructions to Joshua, the leader Almighty GOD chose for them?
Joshua 1:7-8 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. 8 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.
Reciting the WORD Of GOD daily is the beginning of meditating upon the WORD Of GOD, the beginning of instructing ourselves daily in the Ways of the Kingdom to which we are heirs in Christ Jesus our LORD. The world is NOT going to instruct us in the Ways of Almighty GOD and His Holy Kingdom, therefore, we are responsible before our Abba Father to do so ourselves. It is our choice. We need instruction in His Holy Ways so that we may adopt them as our own ways.
