God’s Unchanging Agenda 14 of 32

Why reflect or meditate? I blogged on this before I started the series but I think, perhaps, it might be good to review the biblical mandate for such activity. Reflection and meditation change us. They change us in a good way. A godly way. Here are some references:

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. (Jos. 1:8-9)

My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips, when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night; for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy. (Ps. 63:5-7)

I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds. Your way, O God, is holy. What god is great like our God. (Ps. 77:12-13)

 

SCRIPTURE Ex. 3:1-10 God speaks to Moses from a burning bush that does not burn up and issues him a call to rescue the Israelites because of his covenant with the Patriarchs.

 

REFLECT Why do you think Moses was instructed to take his sandals off (3:5)? Why do you think Moses was afraid to look upon God (3:6)?

 

REFLECT Do we have this kind of reverence for the presence of God? Why or why not (this is a great place to meditate)?
