Meditate on Scripture
Meditating on Scripture can be an incredible way to spend time with God. When the Lord is commissioning Joshua, God instructs Joshua to meditate on Scripture day and night. When we think of meditation, we tend to think of the person sitting cross-legged, fingers making circles, eyes closed saying, “oohhmmmm.” This is not what we are talking about. Meditating on Scripture is about filling our minds with more of God and His truth. We do this by reading Scripture over and over again as well as thinking on the words we have read. You can also meditate on attributes of God such as His holiness or His love. Meditation is a great tool to fill our minds with God and His truth!
Read Joshua 5:13-15
13 When Joshua was near the town of Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with sword in hand. Joshua went up to him and demanded, “Are you friend or foe?”
14 “Neither one,” he replied. “I am the commander of the Lord’s army.”
At this, Joshua fell with his face to the ground in reverence. “I am at your command,” Joshua said. “What do you want your servant to do?”
15 The commander of the Lord’s army replied, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did as he was told.
