Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul
Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul 

       Feeding On God's Word       

Feeding on God's Word is to meditate on what you read, much like eating and chewing your food.



 Here are some practial ways of doing this:  

First, pick out a single verse that you would like to think about.


Second, write out the verse on a note cardof a piece of paper.


Third, carry that verse with you whereever you go.


Fourth, refresh your memory as opportunity occurs by re-reading it.


Fifth, pray over the verse. Ask God to give you a blessing out of the verse and reveal to you its beauty and preciousness.

Sixth, ponder each word separately.

Seventh, ask questions about the verse as you seek to discover its deeper meaning.
