Bible Meditation

 

This is called Christian meditation by some. I’m calling it Bible Meditation to contrast from other kinds of meditation (such as that practiced in Asia where emptying of one’s mind is the focus). Jesus warned us to fill ourselves with Him, otherwise the Enemy will step in and fill the void. To work on a Scripture text through repetition as though I were trying to memorize it is an simple form of meditation. In doing such, I have slowed down, and am dwelling carefully and intentionally on God’s word. I find that slowing copying a Bible text in my prayer journal is especially helpful to focus my attention on God and His message for me.
