Meditate on God’s Word

29 October 2019
‘In His law he meditates day and night.’

To go deeper in our faith we need to go beyond just reading our Bibles and take the time to meditate on what we’re reading. We can be frightened of the word ‘meditate’ but the word is defined as focusing our minds on something or thinking deeply about something. When we meditate on God’s Word, we’re shutting out all distractions and fixing our minds on the truths we’re reading. By thinking deeply about what the Bible says we can begin to gain understanding, wisdom, and start to hear what God wants to say to us through His Word. Peter was so dependent on the words of Jesus that he said, ‘Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life’ (John 6:68 NLT). And Job said, ‘I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread’ (Job 23:12 NIV). As we meditate on God’s Word we develop a mind-set that enables us to rise above our fears. ‘My word…will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it’ (Isaiah 55:11 NIV). His Word has power to bring change to our lives, our minds, and our situations. His Word will accomplish His purposes in our lives. That’s why the enemy will battle us over finding time to read our Bibles. But we have to prioritise time reading and thinking about the Bible, even when we’re really busy. And when we’ve made that time, let’s make sure that we’re moving beyond simply reading passages. We need to be thinking and meditating on what we’re reading. Let’s ask God to transform us and show us new things in His Word.

 

What Now?

Pick a verse or chapter of the Bible. Read it and then try memorising it, writing it out, and looking it up in commentaries. Also, ask God what He wants to show you through it.
