Biblical meditation is a channeled focus solely on God and the application of His word to daily living. The aim is to evoke the human will and emotions toward obedience to God. This is in contrast to Eastern meditation which is a deliberate form of non-concentration, literally a focus on nothingness in pursuit of enlightenment, whose aim is to empty the mind of thoughtful consciousness and emotions.
While you are expected to perform rituals, assume postures, and engage in breathing exercises in Easter meditation, biblical meditation encourages you to study God’s Word (the Holy Bible), imagine, mutter and utter words. This is because words are powerful. We can ‘create’ the right environment we desire to live in by the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts.
In this article, I have decided to share some tips with you based on God’s infallible Word.
- The fear of God is what plugs me to wisdom (Proverbs 9:10).
- No matter how bad it gets, never turn to sin for relief (Job 2:9,10).
- Never allow situation or circumstances push you to misbehave (Psalm 119:157).
- The fear of God brings provision (Psalm 34:9).
- Refrain from speaking guile. Bridle your tongue. Depart from evil and do good. Seek peace and pursue it. These will grant you longevity, prosperity and peace of mind (Psalm 34:12-14).
- You will certainly go through tribulations. Expect a lot of them. However, be of good cheers; you will overcome if you do not give up (Isaiah 43:2; Hebrews 10:35).
- While waiting for your opportunity, develop capacity. Always be prepared (Matthew 24:42; 2 Timothy 2:15; proverbs 24:27).
- You won’t be given certain things by God until you ask (Matthew 7:11).
These are worth meditating on.
