Isaac went out to meditate in the field toward evening; and he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, camels were coming.
Genesis 24:63 (NASB)
The Bible tells us about Isaac practicing meditation. It was evening and he was taking a walk out in the field to meditate. He was not taking a walk to mull over his predicaments or practice some strange ritualistic chanting. No! He was not on a depression walk. He was in a walk with God, the God of his father, Abraham.
Isaac was contemplating all that God has done for him. He was filled with awe at the gracious expression of God towards his family, starting right from his father, Abraham. Isaac took a walk in the field, away from his work, meditating on the goodness and love of God, and thinking through the wonders of God.
He was expecting a wife; his father’s chief servant had gone to seek one for him, and he was out in the field to meditate and talk to God. Bible says as he was meditating, he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, camels were coming. Those were the camels that brought his wife-to-be.
When we meditate in the Word of God, our eyes are lifted up to God, we look above and gaze into what is ahead. We are able to see from the perspectives of God. We are able to see what God has to offer, and what He is presently bringing to us. We are able to connect with the promises of God faster than ever! The clouds clear and we can see the things God has done. We behold the provisions of God and are able to walk in it. That is what scriptural meditation does to us.
