Psalm 119:15 (NKJV) I will meditate on Your precepts, And contemplate Your ways.

The Word of God provides endless resource material for the most satisfying meditation. When we meditate on the Word of God, we are not emptying our minds. Rather we are filling our minds with the Word of God and coming to a deeper understanding of it. And putting it into practice so that it produces in us a fruitful and holy life whereby we may draw closer to God. Meditating on God’s Word involves exercising and engaging our minds to bring the truths of God’s Word to the forefront of our minds and seriously ponder upon them, and apply them to our lives. Applying God’s Word to our lives is the all-important result of meditating on God’s Word. For this reason, we ought to be meditating on God’s Word day and night. For what God said to Joshua is also applicable to us. God told Joshua: “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. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success” (Joshua 1:8 NKJV). Meditating on God’s Word expands from thinking to speaking, or in other words “doing” which leads to obedience to God. And obeying God produces in our life prosperity and success. For this reason, we say to God, “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer” (Psalm 19:14 NKJV). Meditating on God’s Word is pleasing to God when we put what we learn of God’s Word into action in our lives. When we ponder on God’s Word and keep it dear to our hearts, the Holy Spirit can use the Word of God to transform our lives by helping us to put God’s Word into practice. The more we meditate on God’s Word and put it into practice, the more God can use it to guide, teach, purify and transform our lives. My friend, application of God’s Word ought to be the result of studying God’s Word.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
