“My meditation of him shall be sweet…” (Ps. 104:34)
In this busy, non-stop, hectic culture in which we live, Bible meditation has become a lost art. The average Christian, if they read the Bible at all, doesn’t take the time to digest what they have read. Yet, they wonder why they are not strong, spiritually. The Psalmist said, “O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day” (Ps. 119:97).
It is not in the honey bee’s touching of the flowers that produces the honey, but in its abiding for a time on the flowers and drawing out their sweetness that is vital. Likewise, in order to digest the real sweetness of God’s Word often requires meditating upon it.
Someone said, “If I had only three minutes for a devotional time, I would spend one minute reading the Bible and two minutes meditating on what I had read.”
If Bible meditation is new to you, I wrote a book called The Power of Meditating on Scripture that will help you get started. It will teach you, step-by-step how to meditate on Scripture. You can get it at the link below.
