Instruction For Spiritual Matters
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. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
The guidance of spiritual matters is rooted in the book(s) of the Law, God's Law. The principle of meditating day and night means continually reminding ourselves what God has said and lived through His Word (Jesus) so that it may be a testimony to us for eternity. In these verses of scripture lies a command to be healthy and to be of good courage, not to be afraid, nor to fear the unknown, God is with us. Will you study to know Him?
Convicter of Sin, John 16:7-11. The Spirit of God downloads the Truth of God to the minds of humanity to convince them that we are sinners. He does this through conviction in our hearts that we need His righteousness, and judgment is inevitable and will come to all men. Those who deny these truths rebel against the conviction of the Holy Spirit, and we give Him thanks for His kindness. For the revelation of understanding and our purpose for meditation, we give You praise. We declare and decree blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who seek spiritual guidance rooted in the books of the Law and lived by the Word of God, so that; the fulfillment of the Word will be made as to the promise in us who serve Him. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
