“I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune (meditate) with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search” (Psalm 77:6). “Mine eyes prevent the night watches that I might meditate in thy word” (Psalm 119:148).
King David meditated God’s Word. For David, meditation was a time of fellowship with the Lord, a time of worship and praise, which draws the presence of God. When we meditate, our spirit makes diligent search. This is our heart (spirit) reaching for answers or making new discoveries in God’s Word.
David said, “I will meditate on all thy work, and muse on (chew on) all thy deeds” (Psalm 77:12). Whenever the scriptures read, “I will,” it means that you have the decision to make. The choice is yours. The Scriptures counsel us to always choose the Word of God and believe only what it says.
Biblical meditation is designed to renew your mind and expand your capacity to receive the promises of God in your life. It is a way to transform your thinking, so you can think on a higher level…on the frequency of God. Remember, if something is too big for your mind, it is too big for your hand.
Lord, thank you for the biblical gift of meditation that transforms my mind. I purpose to spend time meditating Your Word drawing upon Your presence and receiving Your promises. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
