THE DISCIPLINE OF MEDITATION

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Psa 1:2

“But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night”.

KJV

Meditation is a discipline because if you don’t deliberately and consciously engage your mind to do it, you won’t do it. Meditation helps you to eat the word of God, it’s a process that enables you to transfer the logos from the bible into your heart, it’s only when you do this that the Holy Spirit will find a substance to use in transforming your life. God told Joshua to meditate on the word day and night (Joshua 1:8) because it is the only way you can remain within the circumference of God’s will for your life. You can’t grow spiritually if you do not meditate on the word of God. (1 Peter 2:2). We are told in 2Cor. 10:5 (KJV) “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ”. One of the ways to cast down imaginations and arrest wandering thoughts to the obedience of Christ is through meditating on the word of God. Meditation prepares us for warfare, because it helps you to have the word, which is the sword of the Spirit, and make it readily available to do battle at any time and in any place. Our minds cannot meditate on the word on its own, because it is inclined towards evil by default, we must consciously and deliberately engage our minds to meditate on the word and think on things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report; that have virtue and praise. (Phil. 4:8).

Go into today determined to take out time and meditate on God’s word. Let God’s word be the only standard for your life.

Prayer: Thank you father for giving me this ultimate weapon to bring down strong holds in my life. I pray dear lord that you help me meditate right from today, in Jesus name. Amen
