We have learned that the practice of biblical meditation is founded in God's Word and is supported by the Spirit of Prophecy. We have also observed Jesus' example of using biblical meditation as a part of His devotional life. The question then is, how do we practice biblical meditation?
The act of biblical meditation can be compared to the way God created a cow's digestive system. As it grazes in the field, the cow ruminates on its food, breaking it into smaller and smaller particles as it chews and rechews. God has developed this process so that the cow can take in all the nutrients possible.
Biblical meditation is also God ordained--a method through which we receive spiritual nourishment from His Word as we figuratively chew and rechew on a God-focused topic or text. It is the grasping of the text, the turning it over and over in the mind that makes the difference between simply reading a text and reading it meditatively.
