Meditation is a spiritual discipline. It is a time of active surrender to stillness and the presence of God prompted by the Holy Spirit so that God may dwell in our innermost spaces. God’s dwelling in our innermost spaces slowly conforms us into the image of Jesus.
It is a pondering of and setting our attention on God’s Word and w
hat he is saying through it.
According to Richard Foster,
“Christian meditation, very simply, is the ability to hear God’s voice and obey His Word. It is that simple.”
As a spiritual discipline, meditation requires continual practice to see change. The changes begin from the inside out. Over time, it helps us to remember our connection to God even in our most chaotic, frazzled spaces.
“Meditation resets our awareness of the WITH GOD life. It helps us rediscover the joy that God has chosen to settle in with us, to set up a home in us…” (-Jill Fisk)
Christian meditation is necessary so that we may learn to be ONE with HIM and grow up to look more like our HIM.
