Meditating on the Right Things
I will meditate also upon all Your works and consider all Your [mighty] deeds. —Psalm 77:12
The psalmist David spoke frequently about meditating on God, His goodness, works, and ways. It is tremendously uplifting to think on the goodness of God and all the marvelous works of His hands. I enjoy watching television shows about nature, animals, ocean life, etc., because they depict the greatness, the awesomeness of God, His infinite creativity and how He is upholding all things by the might of His power (See Hebrews 1:3). Meditating on God and His ways and works will need to become a regular part of your thought life if you want to experience victory.
One of my favorite verses of Scripture is Psalm 17:15 in which the psalmist says of the Lord, I shall be fully satisfied, when I awake [to find myself] beholding Your form [and having sweet communion with You]. I spent a lot of unhappy days because I started thinking about all the wrong things the minute I awoke each morning. In contrast, I’ve found that choosing to think about the Lord and fellowshipping with Him early in the morning is one sure way to start my day right and enjoy my life. I can truly say that I have been fully satisfied since the Holy Spirit has helped me operate out of the mind of Christ (the mind of the Spirit) that is within me.
