Knowledge Through Meditating

It Is Written, Joshua 1:8, this book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do all that is written in it.  For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
We hear about studying the Bible just about as often as the Bible is mentioned.  Unfortunately, the Bible seems to be only a little more popular than a speech about giving.
Most of the people who read the Bible do just that, they read the Bible. Unfortunately when you do it that way, you will miss some very important things when it comes to the Bible.  It isn't how many chapters you read, it is what you get out of it.
It is a good idea to have a good study Bible, because it usually explains difficult verses.  That is a good starting point.  When you meditate on what it says, many times it will give you insight into other verses.  You may read a verse today that you understand better, because of something you meditated on a month ago.
Many people are confused about or upset about something they read in the Bible, because they don't understand the reasons for it.  That is where meditation comes in.  When you understand the why of something, you begin the road to wisdom.
If you are serious about learning, meditation will present you with more questions you can find the answers to.  Meditating on the Scriptures is not a test God is giving you to see if you are worthy or not.  Meditating is strictly for your own benefit.  You will find yourself drawn closer to God, and He to you.
So before you dismiss the whole idea of meditating on the Bible, get the mindset that you will take your time and try meditating.  You may surprise yourself, and discover something that you have been missing.  Have a blessed day.  Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
