And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place….(2 Peter 1:19)
Have you ever stared at the fire when braaiing, on a dark night (or at a candle during load shedding)? The longer you stare at the flames, the more the rest of the world seems to disappear. This is how Peter tells us we should study the Word. Our focus, our attention should be wholly on the Word, without any worldly distractions. This is true meditation. Not emptying your mind but filling it with the wonder and majesty of the Word.
