Dearly Beloved in Christ:

Happy are those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or take the path that sinners tread, or sit in the seat of scoffers; but their delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law they meditate day and night. (Psalms 1:1-2)
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. (Psalms 19:14)
Meditation is more than just reading with the eyes. The word meditation in the Bible means reading with “intention.” It is concerned with personal application. When we meditate on God’s word, we assimilate it and make it a part of our own life.
Even in the Old Testament, we see that God is concerned with our thoughts. Being a Christian is more than just doing and saying the right thing. It is also thinking the right things. God holds us accountable for our thoughts and wants them to be in accordance with His will.
Mahatma Gandhi said:
Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts be-come your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.
If we truly believe in God, then we need to make our thoughts be in accordance with His thoughts. Then our words, actions, habits, and values will also become in accordance to God’s will. This will enable us to have the destiny that God intends for us. A destiny where we have fellowship with God in this world and in the world to come.Rev. Shibi Abraham
