"Oh, how I love Thy law. It is my mediation all day long."
- Psalm 119:97
 
If you have ever lived or been on a farm you have seen contented cows chewing their cud. Cows are known as ruminating animals as they digest their food by chewing and rechewing which is essential for the process of assimilation.
 
Isn't the same true with the spiritual meat of God's Word? It becomes a part of us as we prayerfully reflect upon it. But that is not the activity the psalmist is referring to in this text. He had gone beyond merely . . .

Isn't the same true with the spiritual meat of God's Word? It becomes a part of us as we prayerfully reflect upon it. But that is not the activity the psalmist is referring to in this text. He had gone beyond merely reading God's Word. He had made it the substance of his thinking all day long. By chewing and rechewing he had made it a part of his entire being.  As believers, we experience the purifying effect of the Word when we mediate upon it. Jesus said, "Now you are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto you." John 15:3 Meditating takes time and concentration. 1 Tim. 4:15
 
When quiet in my room I set,
Thy Book be my companion still;
My joy Thy sayings to repeat,
Muse over the records of Thy will.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY; Careful meditation on the Scriptures makes for a  closer walk with the Savior.
