How Meditation Works

Meditate on the Word day and night (Joshua 1:8, Psalm 1:1-2, Psalm 119:11-16)


The concept of meditating means to run something over and over and over again IN ONE'S MIND for focus and attention. In Hebrew, the word is used to describe images such as a bird that keeps chirping, or a cow's regurgitation. For humans, it looks like repeating something in your head or out loud in a soft and constant muttering IS AN ASPECT OF MEDITATION.


It's really a very simple concept. But take a second and imagine the deep impacts if you really did meditate on God's Word every day. Your regular pattern of thought would be overtaken by the wisdom of God Himself. Lies that enter your mind through the world's influences, like all the media that surrounds us, would clash with the truth running through your thought life. Your mental health would come to a peaceful stasis, as focusing on a singular and good thing - or a few good things - would bring simplicity to your train of thought. That's less time and energy worrying. BUT more time inviting AND HAVING the power AND PRESENCE of Christ IN your everyday life.
