3 Ways To Meditate on God’s Word

How often do you slow down and focus deeply?

When do you still your mind and body to simply listen to God and focus on his word?

Probably not much, if you’re like most people today. We’re all busy and pulled in many different directions.

Some say meditation on God’s Word is a lost art in our modern culture.

We don’t know how to be still and allow God’s words to root deep into our hearts, yet doing so should be a crucial and vital part of our prayer life.

3 Ways to Meditate on the Word of God
Don’t think ‘new age’ meditation here. This isn’t about finding your own ‘center’ or clearing your mind to achieve some state of ‘self’.

Rather, it’s an ancient practice of inviting God to speak into your heart as you focus on His Word.

In fact, the Psalmists talk about the importance of meditating on scripture, so that God’s Word becomes housed deep within our hearts.

How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
By living according to your word.
I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
Praise be to you, Lord;
teach me your decrees.
With my lips I recount
all the laws that come from your mouth.
I rejoice in following your statutes
as one rejoices in great riches.
I meditate on your precepts
and consider your ways.
I delight in your decrees;
I will not neglect your word.
(Psalm 119:9-16)
This week, I encourage you to try at least one of these methods of slowing down and spending deep, quality time with God in prayer.

Going Deeper:

Which of these three methods will you try this week?

1) Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina is a form of prayer called “divine reading”. It’s a way to meditate on scripture and listen for God’s voice through those words.

“Seek in reading and you will find in meditation; knock in prayer and it will be opened to you in contemplation “ ~St. John of the Cross

2) Write a verse and memorize it

The Psalmist talks of hiding God’s word in our hearts and meditating on it all day long. The best way to do this is by memorizing scripture.

Commit a verse to memory so that it’s deep in your heart and available to you to call on no matter where you are.

3) Doodle a verse

Writing and doodling help to quiet the distractions in your mind and focus your thoughts on God.

Write out a verse and then spend time to draw and doodle around it. This practice brings focus to each letter, each word, allowing the verse to permeate your spirit.

How will you choose to meditate on God’s word this week?

Spend time to allow his words to soak deeply into your heart and permeate the darkest corners of your mind. Let his word guide your path and steady your decisions, keeping you firmly rooted to his way.

Real

What is one word that describes you?

I am real and not fake. I am raw and outspoken. There are many words that describes me, but for now real is the mood that I am in. I am real everyday. What you see is what you get. Accept me or not, it’s your choice because I can only be me, and that’s real.

What is one word that describes you?

Me being Me, and that’s real.
