I have referred to it a number of times. Published by Thriftbooks. It is one of a few "absolutely cannot live without" books that I had. It has helped and blessed me so many times. I understood it! Published by Thriftbooks. What a blessing! It was written with simplicity. It was something that I could understand and refer back to time and time again. What insight! Popular Categories.

We dwell on it and then as opportunities arise, we preach it to ourselves. We inject it into our thoughts as we make decisions, as we admonish and instruct our souls to choose right things and walk down right paths

We dwell on it and then as opportunities arise, we preach it to ourselves. We inject it into our thoughts as we make decisions, as we admonish and instruct our souls to choose right things and walk down right paths. It is evoking the truth, embracing it and embedding it in our lives. It is intentionally focusing on recalling God’s truth that it might resound in our hearts and become that grid through which we sift and measure our thoughts and actions

We must have God open our eyes to understand and apply the glorious truths that we read in scripture

I started noticing how in some of the psalms David wrote that God was speaking back to him. I desire to dwell in this same secret place as we are in the last days. It's time to go deeper. Just like his other books our was clear and concise in instructions for spiritual success! I look forward to reading more of his books.

We have always heard that we must meditate the Word of God, but have not always been told 'how'. Dennis Burke launched a quest to learn how. In this book, Dennis shares the greatest keys he has ever learned to obtain understanding and truth. True meditation will give you understanding of God, His ways and His Word. As you begin to meditate the Word, you will know how to walk in what God is revealing to you. Whatever you can truly imagine on the inside of you can become a reality on the outside. *Available in Spanish also.
  • I read this book in one sitting. Well written and backed with Scriptures. The instructions and "how-to's" are very helpful to guide anyone into meditating on God's Word who is not familiar with the discipline. I purchased the book as a teaching resource for my online community of believers. I was delighted and the book will fulfill that purpose. However, I also plan to use the book for my personal use and will read it more slowly and take the deep dive that is available.

  • He hit all areas about meditating that I didn't know about, this is a very good book and recommend it.

  • I like this book

  • Excellent Book

  • The first two chapters offered basic information on how to meditate on God's word. But as I progressed through the later chapters I was disappointed with the message. Dennis Burke appears to offer a "health, wealth, and prosperity" gospel that is not biblical.

    For example, he says in chapter 3 titled, Spiritual Imagination, "Begin to picture yourself in the setting of God's desire for your life. He wants your body well and whole, free from pain. He wants your family to be united in harmony. He is eager to see your financial standing on the rise." This is hardly the truth. God allows pain and trials in our lives so that he can bring about spiritual growth and work all things together for good. The inference in Burke's meditation is that someone who is lying in bed suffering from the pain of cancer has not pictured health well enough. And what about the quadraplegic who has been without the use of his limbs for years? Does this mean that God has abandoned him or that he is outside of God's will? Absolutely not! The bible is clear that as Christians we will endure trials, and that God will be with us through those trials. I thought that this book was going to be about meditating on God's word.....not meditating on future things we have no control over.

    In chapter 4 he goes even further by writing, "If you listen to some religious tradition that says, "God will heal sometimes, but he doesn't heal everyone", that will affect how you view God's word on healing. But when you continually hear, "Jesus healed them all", you can rest assured that healing is for you." Wow. That is a setup for a big disappointment and even disillusionment with God. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that we shouldn't pray for healing or believe that God can and will heal someone, if it is his will. But it often is not his will. God does not promise to heal everyone. I just lost my mom to cancer a few months ago and a woman from my church died yesterday from cancer. Both my mom and this woman from church had a strong faith in God, yet both were willing to lay themselves in God's hands and trust in his will for their lives. If we meditate on anything, we should be meditating on the bible, not on our own imaginations. Consider Job, who lost wealth, health, prosperity, and the lives of his dear children. Was this because he didn't meditate on health and happiness? No, it was because God allowed him to go through a great trial so that his faith would be proven in the end.

    Some of Burke's philosophies remind me of the current popular teachings called "The Secret", which has a mystical tone to it and a non biblical direction. He writes in chapter 4, "If you can see it, you can have it. If you can see health in your body, you can have it. If you can see prosperity in your life, you can have it. Whatever you can truly imagine on the inside can become a reality on the outside. If you cannot see it on the inside, you are hindered from ever experiencing it on the outside." While there is truth that we often act on things we picture in our minds, it is crazy to think that you can have everything you picture. And I'm left wondering how this doesn't conflict with yielding ourselves to God's will, not our own will. We may want things, but that doesn't mean that it is God's will for us to have them. I had a desire to learn more about how to meditate on God's word and this book did not help with that.

    Some verses that come to mind include:

    Job 2:10b "Shall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?"

    Job said in Job 13:15, "Though He slay me, I will hope in Him".

    Isaiah 14:24 "The Lord of hosts has sworn saying, "Surely, just as I have intended so it has happened, and just as I have planned so it will stand".

    Isaiah 14:27 "For the Lord of hosts has planned, and who can frustrate it? And as for His stretched out hand, who can turn it back?"

    Isaiah 46:10 "Declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, `My purpose will be established, and I will accomplish all My good pleasure'."

    Job 23:13-14 "But He is unique and who can turn Him?
    And what His soul desires, that He does.
    "For He performs what is appointed for me,
    And many such decrees are with Him."

  • I gave one of my most treasured books away yesterday to a precious lady, who is suffering horrendous pain constantly with no doctor being able to help and they don't even no what is causing the pain. It was this book "How to Meditate God's Word." I have referred to it a number of times. It is one of a few "absolutely cannot live without" books that I had. It has helped and blessed me so many times.

  • A quick read and I couldn't put it down until I had read it all the way through!! This book reminded me to take the Truth of God's Word, how to appropriate it into my own life. This book is filled with "meat" and is very nourishing and encouraging. :)
