When we ponder about what God says to us in Scripture, when we meditate on His Word, it helps us focus, understand, remember, worship, and apply.
I meditate because it helps me focus on God’s Word and Ways.
I will meditate on your precepts
and fix my eyes on your ways.
I meditate because it helps me understand God’s Word, Ways, and Works.
Make me understand the way of your precepts,
and I will meditate on your wondrous works.
I meditate because it helps me remember all that God has done for us through His gospel of grace.
I remember the days of old;
I meditate on all that you have done;
I ponder the work of your hands.
I meditate because it helps me worshipGod who thanking and praising Him for who He is and what He has done in Christ.
but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
I meditate because it helps me apply God’s Word to my daily life and ask for help in prayer.
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful 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.
The Steps to Meditate on God’s Word
1. Start with Prayer
Always start your meditation with prayer. Thank and praise God, then prayerfully ask Him to guide you in your meditation.
2. Choose a Bible Passage
First you need to choose a Bible passage you want to meditate on. The Psalms are the easiest Scripture to meditate on as they are songs, poems, even meditations themselves.
3. Read It
Now read your chosen passage slowly and thoroughly several times to get a first impression and understanding of what it is about. If you want, you can write a little summary of what this passage is about or what the main theme is.
4. Meditate Verse by Verse
Break down the passage into verses and meditate on each verse. You can also pick words from the passage and meditate on their meaning.
Here are some questions that could help you in your meditation:
Do the words reveal something about God?
If yes, what do they reveal about God?
Do the words reveal something about ourselves?
How can we respond to or pray about what these words mean?
Are we grateful to God for all He has done?
Are we grateful for the salvation Jesus has provided for us?
How can we apply what we have learned from the Bible passage to our own life?
If you are a creative person, you can doodle or draw a picture for each verse or word you meditate on.
Finally, you need to apply what you have learned from the Bible passage you meditated on to your daily life.
6. End with Prayer
Thank God and praise Him for what He has revealed to you through His Word and what He has done in your life. Confess your sins to Him and prayerfully ask Him to help you apply what you have learned from the Bible passage you have meditated on.
We Meditate with the Help of the Holy Spirit
We never do spiritual disciplines like reading God’s Word, praying, and worshipping without the Holy Spirit. It is also the Holy Spirit who helps us in our meditation. He helps us focus on God’s Word and fix our eyes on Jesus. He helps us understand God’s Word. He helps us remember what God Has done for us through His Son Jesus Christ. He helps us worship God. He helps us apply God’s Word to our own life.
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.John 14:26
“But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me. John 15:26
When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.John 16:13
Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
Is meditation a part of your life? If not, you should consider it as it will grow, promote, and strengthen your faith and relationship with God!
