We often think of muttering as a bad thing. It usually refers to unintelligible speech. If you’re a parent, you have likely reminded your child to stop muttering!
It’s interesting to note that God actually instructs us, as His children, to do the opposite. He commands us to mutter. In fact, He describes a certain kind of muttering as a key to our fruitfulness and success in life.
Look at what He says to us about this in Psalm 1: 2, 3 (NIV) “… but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither — whatever they do prospers.”
God tells us that meditating on His principles, commands, and promises is the key to life success. The Hebrew word for “meditate” means to mutter or speak in a low voice repeatedly. It is using our mouth to remind our mind of God’s truth. Why? Because our thoughts determine our actions. A better life starts with muttering God’s Word!
Make this kind of muttering a habit in your life!
