Meditation: Life-Giving Thoughts

If you are ever tempted to question what God is doing in your life, I encourage you to read Job 38, 39, 40, 41, 42:1-3. It will bring you right back into righteous perspective.

God is so great. His wisdom is beyond anything we can comprehend or grasp. Here is one verse to meditate on. Job 38:36 says, “Who has put wisdom in the mind? Or who has given understanding to the heart?”

I was meditating on Genesis 2:7. It says, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.”

Think about this scene with me. Dust. No life. We are created in the image of God. When he created Adam, he fully equipped his body to function through His breath. That means the brain and all of its intricate work. All the vital organs, miles of blood vessels that carried oxygen to every cell, the right stomach acid and healthy gut bacteria to digest his food.

Adam had no sin. The wisdom of God was within him. In Genesis 2:19-20 it says that God formed animal life, and then brought them to Adam. He named them: cattle, birds, and every beast. Think about birds. Here are a few: cardinal, finch, sparrow, and eagle. With his brain, fully functioning, he named every creature that God made.

Psalm 145:5 says, “I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and on Your wondrous works.” When we meditate on God’s work through His word, we fill our bodies with life-giving health and energy. It is the negative thoughts, and the unresolved issues that destroy our health.

Proverbs 3:5-8 says that when we trust Him with all of our heart, acknowledge Him in all of our ways, and fear Him through awe and worship, it will be health to all our flesh and strength to all our bones. The Hebrew thought in meditating was to utterly abandon all outside distractions. When I was meditating on Genesis 2:7 I felt like the walls of my brain were expanding because of the marvel and wonder of God. He is awesome beyond words (or thoughts).
