Meditate, Write, and Read

“I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds. Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God?”

– Psalms 77:12,13

I shared yesterday how people seeking success in all areas of life utilize morning quiet time. Today, I’d like to discuss this quiet time with God, in-depth. The number one principle is to meditate or pray every morning. Meditation is a Biblical concept, so don’t let the word scare you. The Bible encourages us to meditate on God’s Word! In Hebrew, that word is “haga,” which means to chant or say it over and over. This can be done by memorizing scripture or saying the Lord’s Prayer slowly and letting it sink into your heart. Spend a few minutes in the morning praying over your life and your day. It centers you and prepares you for what’s ahead.

Number two — success-oriented people write down their goals, and what they want to accomplish each day. Instead of getting through the day, you decide to get from it. Your goal is to make a difference today among colleagues, family, and friends. Number three is to read, and it’s usually sacred texts like the Bible. Reading helps you think better throughout the day. Your thinking is more logical and rational. Readers hold a very special place in my heart!

Christ within you is the true source of hope, my friend. As you build your life into the ideal version that you wish for, that God wants for you — and your neighbors, friends, and family desire you to become — hope continues to grow in you. There isn’t one big sweeping change. You make a huge difference in your life overall with the little things that happen over time. Everything can change today, so I encourage you to incorporate some quiet time with the Lord into your morning routine!

Prayer


Father, help me to memorize scripture and let it sink into my heart.

Reflection


Are you hopeful today? What can you do to make Christ your true source of hope?
