Meditation

How to meditate on the Word of God

Psalm 1:2  But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.

We are told to meditate on the Word of God.  Some Christians instantly think that the word "meditate" is New Age religion BUT the Bible tells us to meditate on it's words.  (The enemy always tries to copy what originated with God!)  Don't let the world change what God has already spoken!

The words in our Bible are Jesus.  John 1:1, John 1:14

So, if meditating isn't sitting cross legged on the floor and saying, "Aaaahhh ooooommm..." while thinking of nothing and clearing our mind, then what is it?  How do we do it?

1.  Ponder the Word ~ think about it.  Let it go through your mind.

2. Muse it ~ Take in the Word, let it settle down inside of you, and at appropriate times you bring it back up again. (Maybe at night before bed.)  Let it stir in your heart and in your mind again.

3. Mutter it ~ You actually say it. Say it quietly to yourself. Mutter the truth that God is trying to plant into you.  (For example: a verse or part of a verse that pertains to your situation.) Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.

We must change on the inside, not just our outward appearance.  Meditating on God's Word changes us on the inside.

Jesus is ALL powerful! God's Word is powerful; it WILL change your life!

Given the aliveness of God's word, I often find it interesting (and so very rewarding) when a word or principle claims my thoughts. It happens most often when I take my early morning walks.

There was a day when I didn't love His word so much as today. But today I find that meditation on that word is more like having a personal chat with Him about what, exactly, He'd have me understand about it. I wouldn't miss those times for anything!

Such a good word.
