Devo - Meditating on God's Word

Meditating on God's Word
Romans 12:2

Our entire time alone with God is directed by God’s Word. Desire his words more than life, and marinate in them today. This devotion is taken from the second message in the Alone With God series titled Meditating on God’s Word.”

Meditation is learning to listen to God, to hear from God, to listen in his Word, and hear from him. Prayer is a response to what you’re hearing from God through his Word. Every part, every step, every section of what we discuss in this series is fully, and completely, and exclusively directed by God’s Word. That’s a very carefully worded statement and said with some emphasis for a purpose. So, let me say it again.

Our entire time alone with God is fully and completely and exclusively directed by God’s infallible and inerrant Living Word.

Meditating on God’s Word is marinating. You just want to slip into that marinade. It’s marinating. It’s mulling over. It’s reflecting. It’s dwelling on and dwelling in. It’s pondering the scriptures resulting in a transformative engagement with God.

We have to get to where we love God’s Word. We have to desire his Word more than life. His words are sweet to us – sweeter than the honeycomb. His words are life to us, and we have got to get that. And I’m telling you, the best way to fall in love with the Word of God is to experience God in a real, and relational, and engaging way on a regular basis. It will drive you to this. It will drive you to this. You’ll just say, “Ah, man. I haven’t done that in a few days. I’ve got to get alone with God. I’ve got to meditate on some scripture. I need that.”

You have to fall in love with the Word of God, and this is the best way to do it. It’s to meet him in this engaging way where you get alone with the Lord, and you say, “Lord, I hear you. I hear what you’re saying. I agree with you.” (Try that one.) “I agree with you, God. I agree with what you say. And I’ll obey you. I’ll do what you say.” And that time, you’re going to walk away thinking, “That was real.”

If you’ll do this, if you’ll engage scripture at this level with all that you are, your mind, your heart, and your actions aligned with God’s Word and powered by God’s Spirit, it will be the single most effective thing for your life to be transformed in Christ. Period. There is nothing more effective than this. Nothing more.
