Meditation

My journey of personal observations which I have made over the years to apply Bible reading in my life.

Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.

Observation

The psalmist pledges to speak the things that honor God and to meditate on the things that Honor God.

Application my life

The words I speak need to be honest words that represent what I feel not what I think other people want to hear me say.  Another way of saying this is that I should not be politically correct to get the approval of others when in fact I do not feel the same way as they do.  That means that I refrain from saying things which I do not feel aligned with or that do not reflect my thinking.  My words need to be what I believe, because they come from my heart.  That represents my integrity.  So in order for my words to be such that they are honoring to God my thoughts that lead to those words need to be right minded thoughts which God approves of.  My meditation therefore needs to be about the things God says are good.  And as an extension of that train of thought, I need to purpose to spend time in meditation, making certain that I am spending time focused on God’s priorities.  I can set aside time for meditation and use scripture passages to meditate over.  In this way I will know that the meditation of my heart is acceptable to God.

My prayer

I will set aside time daily to mediate on your word Lord.  I want the meditation of my heart to be acceptable to you.  I want the words of my mouth to be acceptable to you.  I will focus on your word on a regualar basis. Amen
