How to Absorb the Scriptures

Did you know that God is into our meditation? There have been so many bad examples of meditation in the world. And, as usual, the devil always take something that’s good, something that God created for our benefit, and twists it and tries to make it new age or something like this. Meditation is in the Bible.

If you read into Psalm 1, it says, “Blessed is the man who meditates in this law the Lord, day and night, he shall be like a tree that’s planted by the rivers of water, who bears fruit in season whose leaf shall not wither and whatever he does shall prosper.” That is called biblical meditation. You can see it in the New Testament to in Philippians 4:8 where Paul says, whatsoever things are pure and honest, in a good report, virtuous and praiseworthy think on these things.

Meditation is something that you will do somewhere and need to do with the scriptures. We need to do it with the Word of God, which the book of Hebrews says, is quick and powerful, sharper than any two edged sword, piercing to the dividing center of soul and spirit. (Hebrews 4:12)

In our meditation God is showing us the difference between that which is our flesh or soul, and that which is of the Spirit or our spirit, and that which is of the devil. God wants us to have discernment, and it comes through true biblical meditation. So meditate on the Word of God and realize it’s a blessing and a God given gift. Meditation is a sure way to absorb the scriptures into your heart and move into the flow of God’s Presence!
