Everything seems to work against it.
The speed of life
the intense pressures that most people feel
but I honestly believe that meditating on God’s Word changes lives.
For years I’ve read these words
“but his delight is in the law of the Lord and in this law he meditates day and night.”
but I tended to simply read God’s Word
frequently memorized it
I did not really meditate on it.
Life was busy
the noise around me loud
and the pressures great.
But over the past few months I’m discovering the importance
of meditating and I’ve noticed the difference.
Just taking a few words
or phrase from the Living Word
and mediating on it.
Meditating – chewing on it, focused thinking
George Mueller discovered the secret
and his life radiated with God’s power.
Yes, Hudson Taylor practiced it along with many others.
So I began to slow down my Bible reading,
and hold onto a verse or even a part of a verse.
Then I frequently go outside to walk or jog
and it’s during these times outside that I chew on the words
and prayerfully ponder it’s meaning.
At other times I think about the words late at night while I pray.
Slowly going over them
and letting them sink deep within me as I pray and ask the Lord to teach me.
Time after time I’ve been able to call upon these words at a moment of need.
Again and again I’ve experienced the sweetness of His Truth
and the strengthening within my spirit.
Have you tried it?
Day and night our souls need Him.
Hungry for His strengthening within.
thirsty for His Presence.
Shining moments all around
as we discover to live the life He planned for us from the beginning.
Let yourself be drawn ever closer to His Heart, my friends.
He will flood your soul with joy and fill you with abundance.
Like a seed falling deep within the soil
may His Words sink deep within your heart today
nourishing you with Truth.
Are you ready?
Will you join me?
