As For Me, I Will Meditate on Your Precepts.

 29.11.12



If you need encouragement to purposely meditate on God's Word, please read Psalm 119 -today-.

I have been reading it and the more I read it and the more I consider it, I keep seeing that there really is no other way to meditate on God's Word all day if we are not purposely doing something about it. It has to happen in real time. And how do we do it?

We could carry verses in our purses, inn our car, put them on the fridge, or hang them on our walls, and then we should not forget that they are there, but instead it would be good if we could make halts during the day to read and consider them, and pray them and then, live them while driving through the busy streets, or the moment we cook breakfast, or when we explain Math to our children or talk with them about their future, or when we are at Starbucks having coffee with our friends, or the times when we are with our husband in our room with the door closed.

Or we could also start (or continue) memorizing the Scriptures. This is a perfect way to meditate on the Scriptures all day; and yes, it is challenging, but so rewarding!

Consider what the Psalmist says, and after reading each verse ask yourself, "What am I purposely doing to -keep, seek, meditate, etc... ?"


"Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, 
who seek him with his whole heart..." (v.2)

"I will praise you with an upright heart,
when I learn your righteous rules." (v.7)

"With my whole heart I seek you,
let me not wander from your commandments!
I have stored up your word in my heart,
that I may not sin against you."  (v.10-11)

"With my lips I declare
all the rules of your mouth." (v.13)

"I will meditate on your precepts
and fix my eyes on your ways.
I will delight in your statutes;
I will not forget your Word" (v.15-16)

"Your testimonies are my delight;
they are my counselors." (v.24)

" [I] find my delight in your commandments,
which I love.
I will lift up my hands toward your
commandments, which I love,
and I will meditate on your statutes." (v.47-48)

"When I think of your rules from old,
I take comfort, O LORD." (v.52)

"When I think on my ways,
I turn my feet to your testimonies." (v.59)

"...as for me, I will meditate on your
precepts." (v.78b)

"I will never forget your precepts,
for by them you have given me life." (v.93)

"Oh how I love your law!
It is my meditation all the day." (v.97)

"Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path." (v.105)

"You are my hiding place and my shield;
I hope in your word." (v.114)

"I open my mouyh and pant,
because I long for your commandments." (v.131)

"I rise before dawn and cry for help;
I hope in your words.
My eyes are awake before the watches of the night,
that I may meditate on your promise." (v.147-148)

"Great peace have those who love your law;
nothing can make them stumble." (v.165)



Let us encourage one another to abide in the Word.

Under His sun and by His grace,

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
