On Meditation

Thought For The Week 80

Let’s back up a little. For some time I had felt that my daily Quiet Time needed an injection of ‘something more’.  I had mused on scriptures like, “Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long.” (Psalm 119:97, NIV) I had asked myself, ‘How did they do that?’  I had even asked Yahweh to show me, but I was cautious because I knew that there are types of meditation that are not sanctified. Where to go to find out?  A little nervously I turned the paperback in my hand and opened it.  I browsed. It had scripture quotations throughout; my heart beat a bit faster. “Should I buy this?” I wondered, “What if it’s not acceptable?” As I dithered Yahweh spoke lovingly into my heart [I think He was laughing at me, He knows me so well!] “It’s 25p, if it’s not alright you can burn it!”  How practical – and it was the best 25p I have ever spent!

I have discovered that meditation can add a deep dimension to individual worship and quiet time.  Campbell McAlpine describes it like this: “Meditation is the devotional practice of pondering the words of a verse, or verses of Scripture, with a receptive heart, allowing the Holy Spirit to take the written word and apply it as the Living Word to the inner being.” 

I would encourage everyone to cultivate the art of meditation as part of a daily time with Yahweh.    I started with a beautiful notebook and an allocation of five minutes per day; almost 30 years later I am still buying beautiful notebooks and still meditating each day.

[Yahweh] always does what is good for us. If you believe that he gave his own Son for you, this is what you believe. And all of the Christian life is simply the fruit of that faith. Look to [Yahshua]. Look to the love of [Yahweh]. Live in love. And fear no more.
