Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight.Psalm 19:14

Do you long to deepen your intimacy with the Lord? To find a sense of soul-steadying peace? To develop emotional strength? Then you will need to pause long enough to be still and know He is God. Trusted Pastor Robert Morgan leads us through a journey into biblical meditation, which, he says, is thinking Scripture—not just reading Scripture or studying Scripture or even thinking about Scripture—but thinking Scripture, contemplating, visualizing, and personifying the precious truths God has given us.

The practice is as easy and portable as your brain, as available as your imagination, as near as your Bible, and the benefits are immediate. As you ponder, picture, and personalize God’s Word, you begin looking at life through His lens, viewing the world from His perspective. And as your thoughts become happier and holier and brighter, so do you.

Have you ever wanted more out of your Bible reading, or have you ever wondered why it seems that others get so much when you get so little? Perhaps you should do more than read. Perhaps you should think deeply about scripture, spend time with it, replay it throughout the day, or meditate on Scripture.
I know that you might be thinking, “That is too hard or complicated! I wouldn’t even know where to begin!” Actually that is the very reason that Robert J. Morgan wrote the book, Reclaiming the Lost Art of Biblical Meditation: Find True Peace in Jesus. Morgan’s book is like having a master walk beside the reader to help with Biblical Meditation. The book is a treasure trove of information, inspiration, illustration, and rumination, with absolutely no condemnation for any who have not tried to spend more or more serious time in God’s Word.
Each chapter is designed to give the reader a benefit of Biblical meditation. In the chapter, Morgan tells the reader why they should meditate on scripture and gives examples that flesh out the ideas into actual life lessons.
In addition to the chapters, there is also scattered throughout the small volume, on the green pages, specific suggestions for how to get started. This helps to make sure that the whole process does not seem to be just for the professionals, but puts the cookies on the bottom shelf for the rest of us.
Additionally, there is a 10-day meditation guide at the back where Morgan walks the reader through the method with helpful pointers and suggestions along the way. Each day gives the reader a scripture, context, and some thoughts to help with the meditation process.
As bonus, at the end of the book, Morgan gives the reader an additional list of scriptures so that the process can become a habit for life.
I have been meditating on scripture for years, and I found this book to be simple, yet helpful. I found it to be inspiring without being so far above everyone’s heads to make it unreachable. I also found it so immediately applicable and practical that there really is no reason that a person could come away from the book questioning the importance, impact, or impassable process so crucial to Christian Growth.
This would be a great book to read on your own or with your children. It would also be great to be used in church or in a small group setting. It could also be incorporated into a discipleship strategy for new believers, but that is only the benefit to be had outside of the reader’s heart and mind. Inside the heart and mind, there is no way to estimate its value or exhaust its uses.

I already had a decent understanding of what biblical meditation is before I picked up this book. It explains a lot of what biblical meditation is and why people should do it -- but I was already convinced of that before I opened the book. What I found helpful was the prompts for biblical meditation near the back of the book, which offer Bible verses to think about and carry in your mind throughout the day. (Posted on 5/6/2017)
