Prayer: Just Meditate for a Month
But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.—Psalm 1:2
Let the old saints be our example. They came to the Word of God and meditated. They laid the Bible on the old-fashioned, handmade chair, got down on the old, scrubbed, board floor and meditated on the Word. As they waited, faith mounted. The Spirit and faith illuminated. They had only a Bible with fine print, narrow margins and poor paper, but they knew their Bible better than some of us do with all of our helps.
Let's practice the art of Bible meditation.... Let us open our Bibles, spread them out on a chair and meditate on the Word of God. It will open itself to us, and the Spirit of God will come and brood over it.
I do challenge you to meditate, quietly, reverently, prayerfully, for a month. Put away questions and answers and the filling in of the blank lines in the portions you haven't been able to understand. Put all of the cheap trash away and take the Bible, get on your knees, and in faith, say, "Father, here I am. Begin to teach me" The Counselor, 136-137.
"Guide me, Lord, as I take time throughout this whole year to meditate on You. Tozer is stimulating me, but my real desire is to hear from You. I'll get on my knees this morning, Lord, in quiet expectation. Amen."
