One cannot go into the depths of God in the natural realm. Meditation is an effective way to rid ourselves of mundane things and focus completely on God.
Meditation is an inward spiritual discipline because when one does it properly, it becomes easy for the human spirit to connect to the Spirit of God.
Spirit must connect with spirit. The natural and the spirit cannot connect. God will not come down to our natural level; therefore, we must go to His level. This connection is done when we meditate. There is no accident that the word “medicine” and the word “meditate” have the same prefix “medi.” Just as medicine is for the body, meditation is for the spirit.
Meditation is simply mulling over and reflecting on a word, a scripture or a scene from the Bible. Several methods are recommended for meditation.
- Get into a comfortable position and quiet your mind.
- Choose a scene from the Bible to meditate on.
- Do not hurry the process.
- Sit and think.
At first it might seem awkward, but practice it until it becomes a habit and then it will develop into a discipline. After a little while, you will be in the presence of God.
