Scriptures to Meditate On

June 8, 2024

We are to keep God’s words in our hearts, on our lips, and in our eyes. Then we will prosper and succeed in all God appoints for us to do, just like Joshua who had the Word on his heart. The way he lived, meditated on the words of Scripture day and night, and kept them firmly in his mind was the secret of his success.

When we meditate on scripture, we are pondering it deeply. It’s one thing to read a verse, it’s another to let it linger in your soul. This is what the Bible means when it speaks of meditation. It is a deep thought and contemplation, a process of chewing the words of Scripture over and over again, letting them soak in.

Begin by selecting a passage of Scripture, and reading it through slowly. Then focus on it, phrase by phrase, considering what it says about you, and how to apply it to your life. Continue this over a few days.

Repeat the passage to yourself as you go about your day—say it out loud, put it on a 35 card or in your phone, or write it on your mirror. Tell family members and friends about the verse or passage you’re meditating on, so they can help you to reinforce it. It’s the kind of word that is like honey—the more you linger on it, the sweeter it will become to your soul. “Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things” (Philippians 4:8).
