For two nights I’ve been meditating on “observe to do” from Joshua 1:8. It means to be very attentive as we are meditating. Asking questions like: What does this word mean? How can I make it active in my life? It is like squeezing the juice out of a lemon. We want to get it all.
James 1:24 says about the man who is observing his face in a mirror. “For he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets…” Verse 25 says, “But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.” The Amplified says, “…being not a heedless listener who forgets, but an active doer (who obeys)…” It is a perfect illustration of meditating to observe to do. I just never put Joshua 1:8 with James 1:25 before and wanted to share this with you.
