Princes also did sit and speak against me: but your servant did meditate on Jesus!

How poignant is this verse for today? I think of leaders in our country speaking out against the President and how that must affect him. We’ve had our days when those around us, those we thought were friends, came out and spoke against us. Or maybe even told lies which hurt our reputation. But what does a believer do in these circumstances?

The believer can turn to the word of God and meditate on it. Not just reading the word but meditating on God’s word is what heals our hearts from these hurts. God encourages the heart through the healing power of His word! That is why the Bible is a living book – it has continued to heal souls throughout the ages. We are blessed that we have the Bible on paper and on the internet. We can pick it up and search a specific verse in just seconds. There’s no excuse for today’s believer not to read it and be encouraged.

When was the last time you meditated on Jesus, Christian? Encourage your heart today!!
