Meditate on the Word of God . . .
for Edification, Maturation, Spiritual Transformation, and Manifestation
By practicing biblical meditation, one intentionally and purposefully focuses attention on the Word of God. The goal is spiritual transformation by meditation on the Word of God.
“The purpose of meditation is to penetrate the Scriptures and to let them penetrate us. Meditation attunes the inward self to the Holy Spirit so that our hearts harmonize and resonate with His voice.” (Boa, 2001, 177)
What Does the Bible Say about Meditation?
In Psalm 1:2 and Joshua 1:8, the Hebrew term for meditate is “hagah“, which means to mutter (out loud to one self), to mull over, to ponder, to think about.
In Psalm 119: 15; 23, 27, 48, 78, 97, 99 and 148 the Hebrew term for meditate is “siyach“, which means to ponder, reflect upon and talk out loud to one self.
Therefore, meditation is to “hagah” or “siyach” on the Word of God — to read it out loud — over and over again — and then ponder, reflect and contemplate the Word.
Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for
reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness. . .
