The Weekend Word

Study and Meditation

Meditation

Study and Meditation two different things which can work together
One of the big things we notice today is the disconnect between these two very  important activities that we as believers are encouraged to do. There is a big difference between the two and many people will think they are doing both when in fact they are only doing one. Why is this important?
 

Study
σπουδάζω
spoudazō
spoo-dad'-zo
From G4710; to use speed, that is, to make effort, be prompt or earnest: - do (give) diligence, be diligent (forward), endeavour, labour, study.
 
2Ti 2:15  Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 
 
Meditation
שִׂיחָה
śı̂ychâh
see-khaw'
Feminine of H7879; reflection; by extension devotion: - meditation, prayer.
Psa 119:97  MEM. O how I love thy law ! it is my meditation all the day. 

We see above that meditation is a different exercise than study. When we meditate upon Yah’s Words we are reflecting and praying about what we have read or studied. This can also lead us into praises and worship at our Lord’s feet. We are looking to our Saviour for deeper revelation and understanding about what we have read or learned; through His Ruach (Spirit) we engage in a very intimate and personal time with Him. This time is where our efforts are to touch His Heart and hear His opinions and revelations about our current readings and studies. This activity is a must in growing our relationship with Him. So as we see this activity is a different one than study.
 

Now we will establish a good working knowledge of how these two things can work separately and together to grow our faith and confidence in our Creator.
As we take what we have learned to prayer and meditation the Ruach will impart to us an intimate insight. What transpires can be truly deep and profound on many different levels of our spirit, soul, and mind. Many times, an also intimate response from the individual such as worship, praising, and just a quite loving of our God will take place. He brings us spiritual strength, peace, comfort, or a deep knowing in our hearts about what we have read and studied.
 
It is our belief that both these activities should be used together by all who believe. A healthy and extraordinary relationship with our Heavenly Father, His Son, and His Spirit will be had by using both of these activities in our daily walk with Him! It is a life of dedication and service to Him we are called to live! Studying brings information and knowledge, Meditation brings Revelation and Wisdom and the wealth of the Fruit of the Ruach (Spirit). By exercising both, each can bring us true revelation and knowledge. In the activity of both Study and Meditation together a great deal more can be had when done in concert ! We hope this brings you a more balanced and fruitful understanding of each of these activities. We implore you to do both.
 
Pro 23:12  Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge. 
 
Gal 5:22-26  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things. Now those who belong to the Messiah Yaushua have crucified their flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, by the Spirit let us also be guided. Let's stop being arrogant, provoking one another and envying one another. 
 
Baruch (blessings) to you
