MEDITATE ON GOD’S WORD
Main Text: Philippians 4:8 – Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things
Psalm 1:2 – But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
To meditate means to think deeply or carefully about something. To keep the mind fixed upon something. It can also mean to consider or to reflect on something.
When you meditate on God’s Word you ponder over a particular verse or chapter and ask the Holy Spirit to give you a revelation of what it means. Which part of your life is it speaking to? Stay on that verse until you clearly understand it. Allow God to convict, encourage, or teach you through that word. Meditating on God’s word leads to stability in the word. The Christian will be like the tree that flourishes in and out of season. They enjoy spiritual nourishment which can equip them to handle challenges that comes their way.
Meditating on God’s word will reveal the direction you ought to take in life – especially when faced with a dilemma. The word of God is the voice of God and Isaiah 30:21 says, whether you turn to the right or the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”You hide God’s word in your heart by constantly meditating on it, this helps the voice of your conscience to be louder than that other voice that always wants to nudge you over the cliff of sin.
You can meditate on God’s word by; having a quiet time, praying, allowing God to search your heart, reading and pondering on the scripture, applying the word in your life, and letting the word renew your mind.
MEDITATING ON GOD’S WORD FIXES YOUR HEART ON HIM.
