Meditation: The Answer to Noise, Hurry, and Crowds

August 30, 2014

Synonyms of the word “Meditate” are ponder, think, contemplate, consider, deliberate, turn over in your mind, mull over, reflect. Meditation is about giving God our attention, seeking to hear his word to us and then obeying that direction. One author says this: “Christian meditation, very simply, is the ability to hear God’s voice and obey his word. It is that simple. I wish I could make it more complicated for those who like things difficult. It involves no hidden mysteries, no secret mantras, no mental gymnastics, no esoteric flights into the cosmic consciousness.” To find quietness, focus one’s attention on God via scripture or nature, and seek to hear God’s word to you that you might be in fellowship with God and obey his will—that’s what we will explore. Joshua 1:8, Psalms 4:4.
