Not sure I can say too much more than what everyone else has said. Meditation on gods word is important. It 's more than reading, but reading with a person to discern our Heavenly Father, Jehovah. Some tips for meditation: ask yourself, what does this teach me about Jehovah? Why did Jehovah handle matters in the way he did? What can I learn from this bible account? A deep personal study such as that helps us to draw closer to Jehovah, and that will definitely lead us to a successful path in life.

This passage says it all. As I meditate on God 's word and stay in His word daily and keep His word daily and observe to do what His word says : Then He will make my way prosperous and I will have good success : Umph : Evidently all success is not good success unless it is wrought through the Word of God !!

not depart from your mouth refers to speaking out loud. meditate also refers to speaking quietly out loud over and over. as a cow chews its cud and gets more nourishment so do we by speaking out loud scriptures.

abiding in the word of God is what makes us real disciples of Christ & true children of God who by truth are set free. Therefore let us practise God's word by both speech,thoughts & deeds.

Keeping his word makes us stronger and brings us closer to God, we constantly get renewed as we meditate on it, his promised forever stand....in V9 we r further commanded to stay strong and be not afraid cause his word is our shield and our guide. Glory to God

Reverence to Gods word should always be on our lips. Our thoughts, actions and words should always be mindful of Gods word of instruction and his promises. His word needs to be a living part of our everyday life. Our first love.
