Meditate on his love

O God, we meditate on your unfailing love as we worship in your Temple.
Psalms 48:9 (NLT)

There are many things that vie for our attention. Multiple situations face us at any given moment. Our minds move from issue to issue at blinding speeds. Feeling, observing, assessing, and predicting is often done in milliseconds as we multitask our way through the day. This is why it is so important to renew our minds every day. We need to make a conscious effort to slow down and meditate on God’s unfailing love. Paul knew this. He writes, “That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day.” But how? How did Paul renew his mind? He continues, “We don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen.” This “gaze” is a deliberate focus. It is what the Psalmist refers to in today’s verse as meditating. It is putting focused attention on a particular issue. It is this personal consideration of what the thoughts of His love mean and their personal application to our life that makes meditating so enriching. Today, don’t just read God’s word about His love; stop and meditate on it and let it affect you in profound and meaningful ways.

Father, I am so thankful for Your love. You are so real, so relevant to my life. Help me to stop all the madness and slow down long enough to mediate on how extraordinary your love for me is. Today, as I spend time with You, renew my mind. In Jesus’ name.
