Meditating on God
Scripture Psalms 77:12 I will also meditate on all Your work, And talk of Your deeds.
Observation: I think of things all day long and most of the time they are aimless or sinful thoughts. Most of my days are made up of these moments of wasteful time. If I spent them on meditating on my Lord and what He desires of me I would be fulfilling the purpose God has created me for and my life would be full of the joy of the Lord, but the devil is busy in my thoughts and I find my mind wandering. What a waste of a precious life.
Application: I need to make a better effort of meditating on God and not my selfish and sinful thoughts. I need to pray more to stay focused on my Lord and fill my mind with things of Him. I need to take this laziness and worry from me and fill that time with praise to my God. I need to hear my Lord direct me and be obedient to what I hear and not let my mind stray constantly from what is right.
Prayer: Dear Lord help me please. My mind doesn’t stop and it is filled with evil. My desire is to meditate on You and your desires for my life and not the garbage I fill my thoughts with. I can’t do it in my flesh I’m too weak and need you to fix my thoughts and desires on You. I love you and want to live a life that pleases You, help me honor you.
