I just wrote something in my journal that I want to share with you. Last night I meditated on “Your words were found and I did eat them” from Jeremiah 15:16. What we eat, we chew and digest. The nutrients from our food feeds our cells and nourishes them. The same thing happens when we mediate on His word. It feeds and nourishes our spirit, soul, and body.
Psalm 16:7 says, “I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel; my heart also instructs me in the night seasons.” Night seasons: the dark times in our lives, the hard trials, the waiting in the unknown. The things we have meditated on in the light will be illuminated in the dark. Our meditation becomes the reservoir we draw from in troubled times.
