This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Joshua 1:8
In the Hebrew, it is hagah.
It means a low sound.
According to scholars,
Not unlike the growling of a lion
Or the cooing of a dove.
We turn over in minds whatever is our chief concern.
Our shortcomings or God’s provision.
Someone else’s slander or God’s promises.
Worries for tomorrow or confidence for eternity.
You are likely already meditating.
Like Joshua, choose the words of God.
