One of the things that will bring you sanity during these chaotic times is meditating, particularly before you start your day, or at the end of the day. To meditate on something simply means to think about it, and let the meaning of it sink deep down into your heart.
Meditation is a spiritual practice thatâ€™s encouraged throughout scripture. The key is to draw on Godâ€™s wisdom found in His Word, which is filled with the blessings and benefits of meditating on its principles. For example, meditating on Godâ€™s Word will give you spiritual, physical and emotional success. Thatâ€™s exactly what God told Joshua as Israel got ready to enter the Promised Land.
Today, when everyone is looking for solutions and success, Godâ€™s definition of both of these is to know Him better. One way you can do that is to read and understand His Word. Another benefit of meditating on Godâ€™s Word is that it will help you keep your heart and mind right before Him, especially in these times. The Bible is like a mirror and a lens that accurately shows you where your heart really is, and how to move forward.
â€œStudy this Book of the Law continually. Meditate on it day and night so you may be sure to obey all that is written in it. Only then will you succeed.â€(Joshua 1:8, NLT)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, You have said that Your Word is living and active. Father, help me have the appetite for meditating on Your Word daily, so I can live and be successful. God, today I pledge to spend time allowing this living Word to search my heart, and make sure I am right before You, moving forward with vision and vigour, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
