 MEDITATIONS 

 

The Christian faith has several disciplines. Disciplines are designed to draw us closer to God in our own life. The discipline of prayer allows us to talk to God. The discipline of scripture allows us to listen to God in his revealed word. The discipline of fellowship allows us to be with other believers and support each other.

 

The discipline of meditation allows us to be with God, to listen to him and allow him to speak to our hearts in his presence and to experience the fellowship of his presence. It is restorative and life giving and allows us to rest.

 

Prayer is like water. It quenches our thirst. Without prayer we would die first. Scripture is like food. It feeds our soul. Without it we would die of malnutrition. Fellowship is like shelter. It provides a place of safety--without it, we our exposed. Meditation is like rest. Without it we are not restored. 

 

Rest well in the meditations listed to the left as you allow God to restore your soul. The first three meditations have to do with Jesus and our relationship with him. The next three meditations have to do with God the Father. "No man comes to the Father, but by me", Jesus said. Therefore we start with him. The last meditation is a composite meditation of the first six. 

 

Each of these meditations is progressive and build upon each other. They are composites of how many people have experienced God and expressed their experience to me over several years. Let the peace of God guard and guide your heart as you meditate on the meditations. 

 

I suggest you set aside a quiet time several times a day for ten to fifteen minutes each time to allow God to restore your soul and you to rest. I frequently recommend five to seven times a day for meditation especially in the beginning. Eventually it becomes prayer without ceasing as we practice the "presence of God" in our lives.
