Stop. Meditate. | by John Rogers

When asked why he meditated on the word of God, Eberhard Bethge, a disciple of Dietrich Bonhoeffer replied, “Because I am a Christian, and because therefore every day is a day lost for me in which I have not penetrated deeper into the understanding of the word of God in Scripture.”

You may have listened to Psalm 47-51 this morning. You may have agreed in prayer. You may have marked up your bible or even recorded something that really spoke to you. But have you meditated today? Have you slowed down to focus your mind on the truth of God and his ways? In this episode, I want to spend some time highlighting some verses from today’s reading that speak specifically to attributes of our God. I want to give you an opportunity right now to slow down wherever you are. Whether you’re just waking up, about to begin a workout, or routinely making your daily trek to work, I want to give you just a moment to think about God.

Only to sit and think of God
O what a joy it is!
To think the thought, to breathe the Name
Earth has no higher bliss

writes Fredrick W. Faber. So let’s think of our heavenly Father right now, and join in this earthly bliss. 

The LORD is the Most High.
He is a Great King over all the earth.
He reigns over the nations.
He sits on his holy throne.
He is highly exalted.

The Lord is great.
And greatly to be praised.
He is steadfast in love.
He holds righteousness in his hand.
And he is our guide forever.

He redeems our life from the pit.
He ransoms our soul.
He is mighty, beautiful, our only judge.
And “there is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which [he] who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, ‘Mine!’ Writes Abraham Kuyper.

He is abundant in mercy.
The restorer of joy.
He is our savior and healer.
He is our King and our God.
