Meditation and Insight

O how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day. Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever mine. I have more insight than all my teachers, for Your testimonies are my meditation. Psalm 119:97–99 I was very young when I started serving in youth ministry. I was [...]

Meditation and Understanding

Have you ever read the Bible in the morning and were unable to remember what you read later in the day? I suspect we have all experienced this. In fact, sometimes we read the Bible and just a few minutes later we cannot remember what we read! Christians must understand that our primary objective is [...]

Meditation in Times of Trouble

When we face times of trouble, our minds often focus so much on our struggles that we fail to see life through the lens of Scripture. As a result, we often fail to grow as we should in the midst of our trials and we miss spiritual opportunities that God has ordained for us. Meditation [...]

Meditating to Please God

Psalm 19 presents a beautiful picture concerning the value of God’s word. The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul; the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear [...]

Meditation and Blessing

The very first Psalm provides an important contrast between the wicked and the righteous. How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in [...]

Motivation to Meditate

It is difficult to imagine what life would be like if we did not have God’s word. We would have no idea who God is. We would not understand how sin entered the world and the devastating impact it has had. We would not know about true love or what is going to happen when [...]

Meditation and Temptation

Our minds can be a seedbed for sinful thoughts. When we become Christians, we are no longer in bondage to sin (Rom 6:17-18). But we still must deal with perpetual temptation (1 Cor 10:13). The question is: How can we train our minds to think in a way that is honoring to God? The psalmist [...]

The Process of Biblical Meditation

Biblical meditation is a spiritual discipline that requires intentional effort. It is necessary for the believer to learn to think spiritually throughout the day so they can accomplish spiritual objectives. Far too many Christians think about spiritual things at specific times of their lives such as when at church, when doing devotions, etc. But they [...]

Stay Focused (Psalm 119:23)

Even though princes sit and talk against me, your servant meditates on Your statutes. Psalm 119:23 An interesting response to opposition! These princes are leaders in high places who are expected to protect the rights of those who are walking uprightly. Yet here we find them speaking in opposition to the psalmist. Even in the [...]

Beyond Devotions (Psalm 119:15)

I will meditate on Your precepts and regard Your ways. Psalm 119:15 The psalmist declares his commitment to God’s word. He does not indicate a simple desire. He does not put conditions on his intent. He states what will be a priority in his life. He begins with his commitment to meditate on God’s precepts. [...]
