Meditating on the Word of God

“But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night” (Ps. 1:2 KJV).

The Lord says that only one thing is needful for us, and that is His Word (Luke 10:42). This extremely important truth still does not ring a bell for many believers. Some view it as just religious rhetoric, because they do not see any relationship between the Word and their career, or current crises in their finances.

God’s Word, which in itself is spirit, dwells in the spirit of man (or the heart). Meditation is the process of taking God’s Word into the heart. Meditation is not the same as Bible study, but is closely connected to it. You can study the Bible extensively, but have all of that knowledge in your brain instead of your heart. The two critical tools of meditation are pondering, or thinking, and muttering, or speaking it out. When you understand, believe, and surrender in your heart to the Word you are reading, it enters your spirit. As you mutter it again and again, you cause it to take extensive root in your heart. Meditate constantly and fill your heart with the Word of God to make your life forever flourishing and fruitful.


Meditate on our main scripture above. Take a moment to think about each word or phrase, to understand them, see how they apply to you, and say them out loud under your breath. Are you willing to allow yourself become what the verse says? This is surrendering your life to make it become one with you.


Are you willing to do what Psalms 1:2 says? To pay attention to the Word day and night? When you read a Word like that above, you take steps to conform your life to what it says. This is how we DO and respond to the Word. Do something to make God’s Word a priority in your life from today on.


Ask the Lord to teach you how to constantly meditate on His Word.
