Meditate on Scripture
“Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” Joshua 1:8 (NIV)
The secret to experiencing the power of God’s word is in mediating upon its verses, day in and day out. We do not need to enroll in theological seminary coursework in order to grow in faith, but we do need to regularly fill ourselves with the Bible, little by little, and as we progress in our life we will draw from its well of wisdom, truth, and promises.
It is not always in deep topical study comparing verses as proof texts that we grow in our faith, but it is also by the practice of contemplation of a single verse that we find guiding truth to live by and to draw from.
Let’s pray today that we may be faithful today to meditate on the word of God and allow its truth to soak in.
