When I was in college, the idea of “study” was not something I put high on my list of enjoyable activities. Yet, the Hebrew word translated as “study” in this verse carries with it the idea of frequent and diligent inquiry—a pondering. That kind of study engages the senses, the heart, the mind and the spirit. “How can I see God in what’s happening here?” it asks. God loves to be sought in this way (Jer 29:13). And in return, He promises a lifetime of enjoyment.
Your thoughts? What are ways you can practice some good pondering today?
