When I read this definition as I was learning to MEDITATE several years ago, I came up with an acrostic to help me remember the key parts of the definition so that I can use them when I meditate. By creating this mnemonic, I was able to remove the parts of Packer’s definition that I think I need to remember when I am sitting in my meditation room. There is some small disagreement among Bible experts over the fine details of the definition of meditation as used in the Old Testament. When you see videos of orthodox Jews today who are meditating and praying at the wailing wall, they are muttering and rocking back and forth as they recite scriptures, think about them and mutter them. The definition of joy in the dictionary is: The emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something good or satisfying.
I pray for courage as I begin this day, for I understand there is work to be done, burdens to be carried, feelings to be shared and joys to be celebrated.
And when this day is done, O Lord, may I have the courage to see Thy guiding hand in the friendships that have been made, in the hurts that have been healed, and in the strength that has been given. Courage is not something that comes from flying to your heart in moments of need or in emergencies. In his book, Knowing God, J.I Packer gives a stellar definition of meditation that has been quoted by thousands of people. Found only 25 times in the Hebrew Old Testament, it seems to be an onomatopoetic term, reflecting the sighing and low sounds one may make while musing, at least as the ancients practiced it. My acrostic from his definition also incorporates speaking God’s word audible as we meditate on the passage.

When the goats were taken out so they could eat, they would eat grass and send it to their first stomach. Most people when they start meditating or praying, the run out of material to pray or meditate very quickly.

However, many shorter definitions that are frequently given for meditation basically say it is focused thinking, going over something in the mind. If you do not find the exact resolution you are looking for, then go for Original(2560x1600) or higher resolution which may fits perfect to your desktop.
Later when the goats are taken back to the fence, they would lie down, regurgitate the grass and chew on it thoroughly before swallowing it again. It  spends most of the day and all of the nights sitting on the eggs, brooding over them to keep them warm until the eggs  hatch to produce chicks. This process allows for proper digestion and breakdown of the tough cellulose that is found grass. And I literally call my name and say my name and say this is what this scripture means and explain it to me.
But speaking out God’s word, declaring it as you meditate on it does something very powerful. The sign of a courageous person, then, is someone who is feels, fear, recognizes fear and still goes on to do what he or she believes is right. Also notice that there is a little bit of redundancy built into the mnemonic, but the redundancy is actually a great thing.
Then I proceed to Dwell on it for a Duration of time, Dissecting the passage word by word in my head. Putting the two meanings together, some experts argue that meditation refers to the repetitive going over of something (scripture in this case) in your mind because it is the chief concern of life. The idea that mental exercise, planning, often is accompanied by low talking seems to be reflected by Prov. Like the goat, he leaves the field of grass (which is the Word of God, the Bible) and then goes and lies in a comfortable position. Then while the goat brings up the grass back into his mouth, the Christian brings the Word of God he had eaten back to his memory and then chews it again in the presence of God, with the leadership of the Holy Spirit. Through this process, the goat digests the tough cellulose in grass while the christian digests the inexhaustible Word of God of God.

The second and very important reason is that many thought experts will agree that our thoughts and our speech (what we say) is one and the same thing. The Christian gets a revelation from the Word he is meditating to nourish and sustain his spirit! The egg has potential in it just like the Word of God that you take in has only potential until it becomes a revelation to you. The Word of God that changes you is the one that you have sat on, brooded upon, and digested until it makes an impact on you, it becomes a revelation to you.
Our invisible thoughts are expressed through our speech but our speech also completes and shapes our thoughts. To put it another way, the egg or seed of the word of God that you take in must be brooded upon until it hatches and produce beautiful chicks that are in your image, that are made just in your likeness, in the likeness of your spirit. You must meditate on the word of God until it becomes yours, it becomes as precious to you as your baby.
It has been said that thoughts unravel when they pass through the lips or through the finger tips. When you speak what you are thinking, it actually enhances, complements and completes your thinking.
The second lesson that you can get from brooding is that it reminds us of the brooding that we all do when we worry about the issues of life often leading to stress and anxiety.
That is why we teach that you lean better by combining hearing, thinking, writing, speaking, and doing what is learned.
Many people who practice daily declarations of God’s word testify to tremendous blessing from the practice.
We just have to practice directed purposeful brooding on the word of God that will yield transformation in our lives.
