What Does It Mean to Meditate on Scripture?

meditating on Scripture

This post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

As we begin the New Year with, hopefully, a determination to be students of Scripture, I want to share one of my favorite verses with you:

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
—Joshua 1:8 (ESV)

When I memorized this verse years ago as a new Christian I focused on the word meditate, which I naturally assumed meant “get in a quiet place and think about the Word.” So I set out to apply this text to my life by pondering a little of the Bible every day. Certainly that’s a worthy and rewarding habit, but is that precisely what the Hebrew word translated meditate means?

Start the New Year with a Free 30-Day Bible Study Course

A pastor friend told me not long ago, “I have Logos, but I probably use only 5% of its capacity.”

This comment came from someone under 40, meaning that he knows how to turn a computer on without fear or antagonism. It hardly counts as “technology” to him; a computer is just “normal” and “useful,” like a hammer is to others. So if this 5% figure is true of a seminary-trained pastor born after the great technological generational divide, at what percentage are the less technologically inclined? Have they successfully even logged in yet?

The Sermon on the Mount: Finding Happiness in the Flood

sermon on the mount happiness

As a kid, maybe 10 or 12, I was leafing through my red-letter edition of the Bible and I noticed that there was one section of unbroken red text that was longer than any other. It was Matthew 5–7. I thought that was kind of cool, and if my memory serves me (sometimes it refuses), that’s why I read this sermon as a young pre-teen. I actually got to know it somewhat well, and I credit Jesus’ words with giving me a firm foundation in difficult times. That’s a vague way of saying it, but I have very definite instances in mind. Truly, the Sermon on the Mount became a rock for me to build my life on before the rains descended and the floods came.

Like all residents of my town, built around the Skagit River, I know it’s best to build your house before the rainy flood season. But even if you are in the middle of the floodwaters, you can reach out for the rock of Jesus’ words, clamber onto it, and find solidity in a world of difficulties. It’s never too late to heed the wisdom of this sermon.
