The subject of Bible meditation and its powerful positive benefits, which largely has to do with the changing of our minds to God’s Will, ways and purpose, is of utmost importance if we are going to experience and live in the blessings of God. So let us now take a look in God’s Word, the Bible, and see who God says we are in Christ Jesus, what God says we are in Christ Jesus and what God says is ours in Christ Jesus.
There are so many Scriptures concerning these things but we will examine three of them along these lines and how to meditate upon them.
Meditation in the Word of God is vital to Christian growth and development. The Word of God admonishes us to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 3:18, King James Version of the Bible) To grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, we must feed upon the Word of God, getting an understanding of the Word and changing the way we think to line up with God’s Word, and then put it into practice in our daily lives. There is no other way.
God’s Holy Written Word, the Bible, is the greatest christian mysticism source of inspiration, motivation, information and truth that exist. It will give rest, peace, stability and refreshment to our weary souls and healing and health to our flesh if we read it daily and learn how to meditate in its precious promises. Yes, that is right, there is healing in the Word of God. (The Bible)
We should be feeding upon His Word, often. And through meditation we can feed upon His life-changing Word every moment of every day. You may not be able to read every moment of everyday. You have other things to do. You may not be able to study every moment. You may have other things to do. But you can meditate in His Word every moment of everyday, even while you do other things. If you can worry all the time (and you know that is possible), then you can meditate all the time, because worry is simply meditation upon fearful thoughts. Bible meditation is thinking based upon what God says, instead of what society says. God’s Word admonishes us to meditate in His Word day and night. That means meditate all the time.
Meditation in God’s Word, if properly taught and learned, can be done all the time. The Word of God can be going through your mind constantly and consistently, until it controls your thought life. When our minds are so filled and flooded with God’s Eternal Word concerning how to live and walk as believers in Jesus Christ, that it controls what we think, the way we think and how we think, and so fills our imagination that we are absorbed in it and can see and picture ourselves saying His Words and doing His Words, we will live the God kind of life with little or no effort.
I know that many of us have yet to really understand what I am about to say, but I really encourage you to muse, ponder and think upon the following statement until it becomes alive in you, until the Blessed Holy Spirit is able to reveal and unveil its essence and reality to your heart, in your spirit:
