Christian Meditation…

30 Sep


Joshua 1:8, “Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.”

The first thing that comes to my mind when I begin to think of meditation, is of a buddhist monk sitting in the mountains legs crossed and arms out stretched reflecting on His essence of being. I began to search the Holy Bible to see what the Word of God had to say on the subject of meditation and I was blown away! The Bible references somewhat 20 scriptures that promotes meditation on the word of God, with Psalm 1:2, “But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night” making a strong case that the Bible strongly encourages the act of meditation. So just what is meditation? Some would believe that it is a new age and demonic act, that false religions use to channel spirits. In fact the dictionary defines meditation as, “The practice of concetrated focus or reflection upon a desired matter.” Meditation and reflection on the word of God allows for the Holy Spirit to impart divine knowledge into our very soul to change our way of thinking and allowing all to see what we truly are, “Sons and Daughters “of the Living God, Romans 8:14. So what do we as Christians meditate on you ask? The answer is, “Who we are in Christ Jesus!” You are a new creation 2 Corinthians 5:17, you are righteous and Holy Ephesians 4:24, you are the salt of the earth Matthew 5:13, you are filled with the divine nature of Christ, escaping the corruotion of the world 2 Peter 1:4, and are redeemed in the sight of God by the blood of the Lamb, Revelation 5:9. Most importantly, “You are more than a conqueror through Christ.” Meaning that You are granted victory through every trial through out your life. Their are plenty more scriptures for us to dwell on I urge all to put into practice of meditation on the Word of God, and let your earthly kingdom reap the benefits of God’s knowledge in Christ!
