Put God First

“I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds” Psalm 77:12 (NIV)
“I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways. I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word” Psalm 119:15-16 (NIV)
The Psalmist encourages us to meditate on the mighty things that God does and all things God has told us. When you think about something over and over, it’s meditation. Meditation is not putting your mind in neutral or the vain repetition of words. Meditation means to think seriously about something over and over. If you know how to worry, you can meditate. Take a negative idea and think about it over and over, and it’s called worry. Take God’s word and think about it over and over, and it’s called meditation. Think more deeply on the beautiful attributes of God, and it’s called meditation. Put God first in your thoughts and it will bring peace to your life.
“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you” Philippians 4:8-9 (NKJV).
