The Bible instructs us to meditate
on God’s word day and night.
Meditation is not like Eastern religions
which puts one into a trance or hypnotic state.
It is keeping God’s word close.
The word meditate in Hebrew is”hagah”.
It means to utter, muse, or mutter.
Utter means to speak.
Muse means a period of reflection.
Mutter means to say something in a low or barely audible voice.
Basically, the Bible tells us to speak in a low voice and reflect
the word of God daily.
We are to mutter or keep His words in our mouth constantly.
Meditation is reading His word and reflecting on,
thinking about, speaking it out and committing it to heart.
Let God’s word dwell in your mouth, mind and heart daily.
But his delight is in the Law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true,
whatever things are noble, whatever things are just,
whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely,
whatever things are of good report,
if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy
meditate on the things.
