Meditate on these things

Meditation engages the mind

with God’s revealed truth

in order to inflame the heart

with affections towards God

And transform the life to obedience.

Thomas Hooker defined it like this:

“Meditation is a serious intention

of the mind whereby we come

to search out the truth

and settle it effectually

on the heart.”

The direction of our minds

reveals the truest love

of our hearts and so,

Hooker said,

he who loves God’s Word

meditates on it regularly

Ps. 119:97

Meditation is not repeating

a sound, emptying the mind,

or imagining physical sights

and sensations,

but Meditation

is a focused exercise of

thought and faith on the Word

of God.
