MEDITATION ORIGINATED IN THE MIND AND HEART OF GOD TO PROVIDE A SACRED AND PEACEFUL ENVIRONMENT CONDUCIVE TO COMMUNE WITH HIM.
The most important activity God gives us is not soul winning, church work, etc. It is seeking His face (standing in the Gap) through meditation on His Word. According to Joshua1:8 God commanded Joshua to meditate on His Word day and night, through this process Joshua obtain the power of mediation which enabled him to live a prosperous and successful life leading the people of God into victory.
When you meditate on God’s Word it gives you power to change your negative faulty beliefs of defeat to a positive state of present victory. The power of mediation enables us to change these negative beliefs which ultimately results in physical, mental and spiritual anguish. Most of our failures, and conflicts in our lives are simply results of faulty beliefs.
Many of us attempt to live the Christian life by our efforts of doing “good” or resisting sin, while we should do good and not sin. We cannot do these things by our own efforts. God has provided a way in which He accomplish His expressions through us, by the fruit of the Spirit. When we faithfully practice Biblical Meditation, we will discover that the Holy Spirit has been busy (The God Experience), transforming our thinking, emotions, and actions so that we will be more pleasing to God.
Biblical Meditation brings us into the very presence and power of God. John 4:24 says that God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must do so in Spirit. Without mediation it will be difficult if not impossible to get out of the flesh (physical senses) and into the Spirit for true worship. According to Jesus Christ prayer is a form of worship where God allows us to come into the Holy of Holies into His presence for communion with Him.
