Meditation for the Christian Believer – How Will Meditating on God’s Word Benefit My Life?
Powerful, Life-Changing Benefits from Christian Meditation!
True meditation comes from the heart and with a desire to please God;
not with an attitude of what’s in it for me.
A key point to note: The Bible commands us to meditate and obedience to God’s Word always benefits our life.
Meditation on God’s Word Draws Us Closer to Him and Brings Blessings
Christian meditation is based on the Word of God. Meditating daily helps reveal God and causes us to be blessed. David discovered this too, and tells us in Psalm 1:1-2 that those who delight themselves in the law of the Lord and meditate on it day and night are blessed.
Meditation on God’s Word is time spent with God. And like all relationships, time invested helps make it stronger and more intimate.
Life and Grace Come Out of the Word of God
From the Word of God comes life. God has already given us everything that pertains to life and godliness (spiritual training). Grace and peace are multiplied through the knowledge of God and His divine power has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness. (2 Peter 1: 2-3)
Meditation taps into a source of blessings that goes beyond the natural world. It allows us to tap into the very life of God.
Our Purpose, Inheritance, and the Promises of God are Revealed in His Word
We were created for a purpose. And looking to our Creator will reveal His plan, so that we can live a fulfilling life. The Lord says He has plans to prosper us and not to harm us; plans to give us hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
“We have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things after the counsel of His own will.” – Ephesians 1:11
If we want to know God’s will for our lives, then we need to read His will. How can we claim our inheritance if we don’t know what belongs to us?
God’s Word is loaded with the next promise just waiting to be launched in our life. The Bible tells us we have been given exceeding great and precious promises so that we might be partakers of His divine nature. (2 Peter 1:4) God delights in honoring His promises that we bring to Him.
Mark my words: Meditating brings about revelation of God’s Word and causes us to act on it. This in turn results in the manifestation of God’s promises and blessings in our lives. A purposeful, victorious life comes when we are connected to the life of God.
