Oct 21, 2009 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in holy fear:

“…on his law he meditates day and night.”
(Psalms 1:2)

How can I get there, Jesus?

Show me how somebody like me

can come to the place where I meditate on Your Word day and night.

I want to.

I know I need to.

But I don’t – not yet.

Part of the reason is I haven’t yet figured how that goal is practical.

How do I meditate on Scripture 24/7 while

talking
playing
reading
working
sleeping

applying myself to tasks and relationships that require my total focus?

The other reason I don’t meditate on Your law day and night

is that I’m not that holy.

There are times – even when my mind is free to think about whatever I like –

that I don’t want to meditate on Your truth.

That’s the real issue, isn’t it?

I’m still battling Satan and my own human depravity.

O God.

Change me.

    This is beautiful.Thank you for sharing this message with us who struggle with lack of time or heart in meditation.However,I still believe that God deeply knows that we want to but disinterest is eating us up.

    Greetings; Yes,I believe that one can meditate on the Word of God and still be in a coversation w/another.An example of where I am coming from would be to be meditating on Jesus Salvation of an unsaved person while I would be talking with them.

    Greetings; Great verse! I looked in the Amplified topical reference Bible.The word “habitually meditates” appeares,as it may in other versions.”Habitually”. Make a habit out of it? Could we come 2 the place where the WORD becomes an addiction. I believe so.I like verse 3 much better.Never the less,the Word can become addicting,or so I believe.

    Dear Steve,

    Thank you again for the great job you are doing. We thank God for the spiritual food you are supplying our family and others. Your reward is waiting for you someday up there.
