How to Meditate Daily on Scripture

Meditation is focused thinking about a Bible verse in order to discover how I can apply its truth to my own life.  There are 7 ways to meditate on God's word (one for each day of the week):

Sunday: Mine it!  Is there a word or phrase that speaks to you?  Ask God, "What are you trying to say or deal with in my life?" Pray about it.

Monday: Picture it! Visualize the scene in your mind. What do you experience when doing so?

Tuesday: Pronounce it! Say the verse out loud, each time emphasizing a different word.

Wednesday: Paraphrase it! Rewrite the verse in your own words.

Thursday: Personalize it! Replace the pronouns or people in the verse with your own name.

Friday: Pray it! Turn the verse into a prayer and pray it back to God.

Saturday: Probe! Is there a Sin to confess? Is there a Promise to claim? Is there an Attitude to change? Is there an Example to follow? Is there a Prayer to Pray?
