Chewing God's Word?



Chewing the Word? I enjoy reading both leisurely articles and immersive storytelling books. Yet, scholarly texts require deeper engagement. Each paragraph demands reflection, rereading until understanding dawns. Such reading isn't consumed but savored, each idea chewed thoroughly before progressing, enriching the mind with each deliberate bite.


Think about it. Are you challenged to read God’s Word? Try chewing it well. The Bible is more than just a read; it’s a divine testimony.    


God’s Word tells us: “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God… (Psalms 42:1a).”


Meditation, often overlooked by Christians, is likened to a sheltered sundial, protected but ineffective. Similarly, merely reading the Bible stores its truths without enlightenment. Deliberate meditation allows the Word to reveal God's heart, offering wisdom and insight. Like chewing food, it must be savored to truly nourish the soul.


We pray. “Heavenly Father, forgive our neglect of meditation, leaving Your Word sheltered but un-illuminated. Grant us the discipline to savor Your truth, allowing it to enlighten our hearts and minds, nourishing our souls deeply. In Jesus name. Amen!”


“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)
