Meditating on God's Word

Read it, study it, memorize it.  And there's more - there needs to be more.  Meditate on it.

When we meditate on God's Word, we get the truths of the Scriptures into our minds and hearts where  it can affect our lives.  The truths in Scripture will strengthen our faith as we think on them - ponder them - turn them over and over in our minds.  Meditate.

Some meditation requires the emptying of the mind which opens one up to be filled with anything.  Christian meditation is filling the mind, saturating it with truths from God's Word.  Meditating on God's Word will transform our lives as the truths permeate our very being.

The psalmist said: "I meditate on Your precepts and consider your ways.  I delight in Your decrees; I will not neglect Your Word." (Psalm 119:15-16)  "Be still and know that I am God." (Psalm 46:10)

If you want your Christian life to be transformed, read God's Word, study it, memorize it and meditate on it.
