Biblical meditation is the key to the God-kind of success. The greatest key to well-rounded success is the open Bible. Thus, the bedrock of Christian meditation is the Word of God. The words of God are the very thoughts of God that created the universe. All you need to do to succeed is to update your life with the thoughts of God by meditating on the word of God. There’s no way you can fail incubating the same intellectually creative and productive thoughts that fashioned the universe. “Tell me the mind of God and all other things are details,” says Albert Einstein.
“The secret of being a wise person is to meditate on God’s word daily, not just read it. Through meditation on God’s Word, I learned God’s answers to life’s most important questions: Why am I here? What is my purpose in life? What did God design me for? It’s all in the Word.” –Dr. Rick Warren
Biblical meditation is what creates spiritual wisdom and wisdom is the foundation of wealth, witty inventions and dealing with all affairs of life. Yes, the laws of life are laws of success. You cannot divorce a life of inspiration from aspiration in life. “This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth. but thou shall mediate therein day and night; that thou may observe to do according to what is written therein; for then thou shall make your way prosperous and thou shall have good success” –Joshua 1:8
This is the success advice that God gave Joshua and subsequent generation of Christians. You notice that this verse on meditation is the only place prosperity and success is mentioned together in the entire Bible.
To many Christians, when they hear about meditation, their mind is closed because they think of what they see on TV and the secular media. The image they have of meditation is Eastern mysticism and new age garbage. It is better to light the candle of Christian meditation than to quench the fire of New Age meditation. No doubt, the God kind of meditation is Biblical meditation. And the bedrock or entry point of Biblical meditation is the word of God. Yes, the Christian mantra is taken from the Scriptures and not a meaningless phrase from an eccentric guru.
Biblical meditation is the ability to plant, and cultivate the word of God in the garden of your heart for creative and productive living. Because life is measured in thoughts, whatever you meditate is what you manifest. what you visualize, is what you materialize. Thus, biblical meditation is the most powerful way to manifest and possess your divine inheritance.
Words produce images and the soul must think in pictures. To manifest God’s promises, the Word must become flesh. It is not enough to dream; you must convert the dream into reality through meditation. The process of meditation is to dream, visualize, incubate and hatch.
I have devised an acronym to help you meditate and manifest any promise in the word of God. Call it MR. AM (Meditation, Revelation, Application, Manifestation).
Therefore using the Word of God as the mantra or focus phrase of Biblical Meditation, let’s breakdown the above meditation process into 7 components of Christian meditation:
Localization, Personalization, memorization, verbalization, visualization, Internalization and materialization (manifestation).
My next discourse will explain, expound, and expose the 7 components of Christian meditation.
