Internalizing The Word Of God


Your words were found, and I ate them, And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; For I am called by Your name, O LORD God of hosts. (Jeremiah 15:16)

  • The prophet Jeremiah expressed a way of letting the Scriptures nourish our hearts.
     
  • The Holy Scriptures was written for our learning.
     
  • We are to internalize the Bible.
     
  • We are to know the Word, obey the Word, and share the Word.
     
  • We are to hear, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest passages of Scripture through prayerful meditation.
     
  • We are to ask the Lord to help us apply the Bible to our heart today.
     
  • We are to take time to ponder the meat and milk of the Word (Heb. 5:12).
     
  • As we quiet our heart, God will teach us about Himself through His Book.
     
  • Let us meditate on God’s precepts and contemplate His ways.
     
  • Let us delight in His statutes.
     
  • Let us never forget His Word.
     
  • Some books are to be tasted.
     
  • Others to be swallowed.
     
  • And some others are to be chewed and digested.
