Definition of Meditation: To think deeply or focus one's mind for a period of time for religious or spiritual purposes or as a method of relaxation. To think deeply or carefully about (something).
Often we want people and situations to change.
But what about a change in us?
We go to church, study the Bible, pray and cry out to God to do this and that for us.
But what about a change in how we think, speak, and act?
How about a change in our attitudes, our expectations, our perceptions?
How about a change in how we speak and treat people? How about a change in how we reverence God and His Word?
We can't really change people or situations - but WE can change through God's Word which gives revelation, knowledge, wisdom, healing and peace.
But here is the key - YOU have to BELIEVE it, MEDITATE on it and APPLY GOD'S WORD to YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE - CONSISTENTLY.
We have a tendency to read over words without fully knowing the context or meaning. In church, we will follow our pastors prompt and join in telling our neighbor next to us God's Word.
But what about applying that same Word to ourselves?
Psalm 119:15-16, (ESV) says, I will meditate on your precepts (commandments) and fix my eyes on your ways. I will delight in your statutes (laws); I will not forget your word.
The more we read, meditate (think on) on God's Word, and believe and apply God's Word to OUR LIVES, the more change you will see.
The most important change will not be in other people or situations.
The most important change will occur in YOU.
He said TRUST HIM and I will.
