"In the first two parts of this study, we saw the Bible as a timeless, truthful, treasured book, a living book because the Creator of the universe literally breathed out the Word of God. If you missed these studies, check out the article archives. We saw that it must be assimilated - taken into your mind, understood, and provided as nourishment for your soul and spirit. How do you do that? First by praying, asking God to be your teacher, then by meditating."
Meditate Upon It
I will meditate on Your precepts And regard Your ways.
My eyes anticipate the night watches, That I may meditate on Your word.
"Ask these six questions as you study the Word of God, and God will show you what He wants you to learn.
Is there a promise to claim?
Is there a lesson to learn?
Is there a blessing to enjoy?
Is there a command to obey?
Is there a sin to avoid?
Is there a new thought to carry with me?"
Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You.
I shall delight in Your statutes; I shall not forget Your word. Gimel.
4 You have ordained Your precepts, That we should keep them diligently.
5 Oh that my ways may be established To keep Your statutes!
Make me understand the way of Your precepts, So I will meditate on Your wonders.
I will also speak of Your testimonies before kings And shall not be ashamed.
Let my tongue sing of Your word, For all Your commandments are righteousness.
"Let the Word of God be constantly in your mouth. The more of the Word you give away, the more will be woven into the fabric of your soul and spirit."
