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 according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. – Joshua 1:8
When God spoke to Joshua, who succeeded after Moses as the leader of the Israelites, He told Joshua and the Israelites that they should be meditating the Book of the Law day and night. The word meditate is hagah in Hebrew, and it means to imagine, meditate, mourn, mutter, roar, sore, speak, study (Strong’s). Perhaps meditating on the Law is not as exciting for you, well, God has another provision for us living in New Testament times:
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. – Philippians 4:8
Look for these kind of verses (pure, lovely, of good report, virtue, praiseworthy) and meditate on them. If you are struggling to meditate or find the right verses, we have smartphone wallpapers for you to download to put onto your screen so you can always meditate and utter these verses.
