Keep Healthy Habits Through Biblical Meditation

"I honor and love your commands. I meditate on your decrees." (Psalm 119:48 NLT)

The temptation to abandon the healthy habits you're learning through the Daniel Plan can be quite strong at times. Your only chance to overcome those temptations is to follow the model of Jesus. When he was tempted in Matthew 4:1-11, Jesus responded with Scripture. 

Jesus meditated on and memorized God's Word. Psalm 119:48 says, "I honor and love your commands. I meditate on your decrees" (NLT).

Biblical meditation is not about emptying your mind but filling it with truth. It simply means to read a passage of Scripture, think about it, and repeat it to yourself. It's the first and most important step to memorizing Bible verses.

No habit will help you in the spiritual dynamics of getting healthy more than meditating and memorizing the Word of God.
