On No! What do I do, part 2

  1. Don't panicSit down daily to read the Bible, ask God to lead you to just the right passage for this moment. Sometimes, I have had the Bible fall open to that right passage. Other times I just start looking at the Psalms and find it. Most often, however, the Lord brings to mind just what I need from past reading or study.

 

As you read the passage, ask what it reveals about God’s nature and character.

 

Reflect on God, ask him to show you more of this.

 

Meditate on it. (Psalms 119:15) But, you may ask, how do you meditate

 

  1. Put away the cell phone, the laptop, anything that might distract you. They used to call meditation — musing and a muse was someone wise. Now these have been almost completely replaced with the opposite — amusement.
  2. Spend a significant time just reflecting, listening to what God may be telling you.
  3. If possible, engage your mind’s eye — your imagination
  4. Find pictures, songs, messages to further encourage this thinking. Put these reminders in your day.

 

Ask God if there is any action you need to take to demonstrate what you have learned — to take on his nature yourself. If so, act as soon as possible.  And follow up — see if you’ve been faithful to do God’s will for you in this.
