Psalm 143:5 I remember the days of old ; I meditate on all Your doings ; I muse on the work of Your hands.
The word meditate means to growl, to speak, to mutter, to muse, to meditate among others.
It carries the connotation of a Cow chewing it’s Cud. Did you know that Cows eat their grass swallow it, and then bring it back up and chew it again. From a science standpoint, it’s because they don’t have all the natural acids to have the food broken down the first time they swallow. They go through a process of continually chewing on the same piece of food until it is fully digested.
So it is with the word of God and this is exactly what this Hebrew word means. To mutter, to muse, etc. We can apply the same principals of mediation by taking a piece of scripture today and musing on it all day. Think about it, speak it over and over with your lips, in your head. Ask Holy Spirit to bring wisdom. As you Chew on the Word of God, the Holy Spirit will continue to Break Down all the Nutrients of the Word in your Life.p>
So today’s challenge is to pick a scripture and Chew on it all day! Watch God feed you in incredible ways!
