Psalm Even though princes sit and talk against me, Thy servant meditates on Thy statutes. Meditating on the Word when done properly is designed to expose an often unconscious network of defenses, anxieties, and sources of self-trust Heb. Psalm describes some of the benefits we can expect.

If an accomplished military leader like Joshua needed to meditate on the Scriptures to ensure his success, can we do anything less if we are to live as our Lord requires? Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits" Short Meditations on the Bible book. If I were the devil please, no commentI would do my best to divide and fragment the thinking of the church of Jesus Christ. Bible study is also enhanced by periods of meditation—thinking about what we read in the Bible, how it relates to other passages we have read, and especially how it applies in our lives. Just as meditating in a vacuum or to empty the mind as it is done in eastern religions is dangerous and may open the mind to demonic attack, so meditating on error drawn from a misunderstanding of a passage can lead to unhappy results. Prayer and preoccupation have always been strange bed-fellows.
