Today we will be dealing with 20 bible verses about Meditation.

Meditation is an important aspect of our Christian journey. This way we are communicating with God . Meditation is a language of our soul. When we are mediating it’s just us and our creator. There’s no third party.

This is a major aspect of a Christian life. The word means to murmur or talk to yourself, in which is just your father who art in heaven that can hear you. Just like how Hannah mother of Samuel was meditating in the old testament and the prophet Eli thought she was drunk. Meditation is a language of your soul to God. It’s good to communicate with Him as He is ever ready to listen and answer you.

God’s word is alive and it’s the only truth we can depend on. We must meditate on it day and night . The notion that it is only when we are in trouble or we need God’s help that we should ask Him for help is wrong. The book of Joshua said we should meditate on God’s word every time and the word of the Lord should not depart out of our mouths. Which means God also values meditating. When we study the scripture we have to sit and ponder on what we have read ,what it means to us and how we can add it to our daily lives.
