HOW TO MEDITATE ON SCRIPTURES

In this post, (How To Memorize Scriptures), we shared on how to memorize scriptures and today we want to go into how to meditate on scriptures.

In the book of Joshua, God told His people that not only must they keep His Word in their mouths and hearts, but they must meditate on Scriptures day and night.

“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”‭‭Joshua‬ ‭1:8‬

God says this is the secret to having good success – meditating on scriptures.

How do you meditate on scriptures? As always, we will be giving practical tips on how you can do this.

To meditate means to deeply ponder on and ruminate on a thing. Many times we think we understand scriptures however after we meditate on it for some time, we get fresh revelation and understanding from God and we see that we really didn’t understand it initially. Meditation holds the key to revelation and insight.

How To Meditate On Scriptures : 5 practical steps

1. GO TO A QUIET PLACE

Sometimes, you need a sober and calm place where your environment an mind is free from noise and chaos. Eliminating distractions and redirecting your focus inwards – to God and His Word.
The noise in our everyday lives may not allow us maximize our meditation time. So set sometime out to go to a quiet place.

2. CHOOSE A VERSE TO MEDITATE ON

It could be from your Bible study time, devotional, or a verse mentioned in church. Select one and write it down or memorize it.

3. PRAY FOR REVELATION

When the Holy Spirit breathes upon your mind, your meditation will be more fruitful.
As Him for help.

4. READ OUT THE VERSE AND THINK ABOUT IT IN YOUR HEART

The Holy Spirit will assist you as you do this since you have asked Him for help. Ponder on each word, sentence and expression carefully.
