Did you know that meditation is in the Bible? This often surprises people, but God’s Word reveals that it was God’s created intent for us to meditate on our Creator. If meditation is in the Bible then it’s important Christians know what it means to meditate on the word of God. This post will define what modern mindfulness meditation is, what the biblical meaning of meditation is, and then go to God’s Word to discover what meditating on God’s Word means. Meditation appears in Scripture at least 23 times and most of those references are in Psalms. Because of this we’re using Psalm 119 to answer our what is biblical meditation question. I pray this post helps shape how you use and value God’s Word. The Psalm 119 section is peppered with Bible study questions for you to answer as you read through this post or spend time later, meditating on God’s Word.
