The Bible has a fair amount to say about meditation and the types of things that we, as followers of Christ, should set our thoughts upon.
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. (Josh 1:8)
But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. (Ps 1:2)
I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways. (Ps 119:15)
May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the Lord. (Ps 104:34)
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. (Phil 4:8)
Suggested topics for our meditations:
- The Scriptures (Book of the Law; law of the Lord; precepts);
- God’s ways;
- The Lord; and
- All things that are truthful, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent, and praiseworthy.
The Bible tells us that as we meditate upon and talk about these themes that we will have a successful and prosperous life. What a blessed promise!
