The practice of meditating on the Word of God is such a very valuable practice for Christians. I’ve observed, through personal experience, how useful this exercise is and I want you to see what is all about and how you can begin to get engaged in it.
I’ve also seen from God’s Word, how God desires we engage in the practice of meditation on His Word. If you have not taken this exercise seriously as a Christian, you need to read this Christian personal development article carefully.
What is the practice of meditating on the Word of God?
The practice of meditation on the Word of God is a process where Christians allow themselves to think deeply or roll over the truth or a fact from God’s Word in order to arrive at a valid conclusion that solves a problem in their lives of help them to gain further insight into an issue. Christians are expected to get engaged in this very useful practice in order to give meaning to their Christian lives and activities.
Ungodly practice of meditation
Now I know that some funny and ungodly guys have taken the practice of meditation into another ungodly level. They have used this great exercise for the wrong reasons. They have allowed what I call ‘occultic and demonic meditation‘.
You don’t have to go in that direction; you need to learn how to carry out Godly meditation and which is basically based on meditating on the Word of God.
God’s instruction to Joshua on the practice of meditation
When God asked Joshua to take over the mantle of leadership of Israel from the great Prophet Moses, one of the successful practices God asked him to get engaged in is meditation. God said in Joshua 1:8, “This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it.”
Joshua understandably felt intimidated and inadequate by the enormous responsibility that the office would place on him and also the task of stepping into the big shoes of Moses. God noticed this and gave him a motivational talk. Part of the motivational tonic is the practice of meditating on the Word of God.
How David described the practice of meditating on the Word of God?
Let me show you how David puts it in Psalm 4: 4. I’ll be quoting both the New King James version and the Message translations.
- “Be angry and do not sin. Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still.” NKJV
- “Complain if you must, but don’t lash out. Keep your mouth shut, and let your heart do the talking.” Message.
The Message translation describes meditating within your heart as ‘ let your heart do the talking’.
This shows meditating on the Word of God is carried out in the atmosphere of the heart. It’s the practice of rolling over God’s Word, both revealed and written, in your heart without uttering any word from your mouth. It should be done in a quiet place where you’ll not be distracted.
I also advise you have your pen and paper with you when you do this because great revelations from God will drop into your thought and heart during this period.
Another David statement about meditation
I want you to look at this other interesting and inspired statement from David on the practice of meditation: “Give hear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation.” Psalm 5: 1.
David wanted God to hear his words and meditation.
What does that mean?
God hears the word from your mouth as much as He hears the talk from your heart when you meditate! David understood this very well and that was why he asked God to hear both utterances.
I also believe this is the reason why God always gives replies to the practice of meditating on His Word with important revelations and information to people who get engaged with it.
The Joseph story about meditation
Can you recollect the story of Joseph in Matthew 1:20? The bible says “While he thought about these things, behold an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying…” God’s angel heard the thought or his meditation on the present circumstances between himself and his espoused wife and responded with important and valuable information for him which saved him lots of troubles.
