Scriptural Meditation



Considering Whether This Be True !

Years ago, I had a friend who while attending the college at Berkley, California, joined a cult that taught her how to meditate. 

Each afternoon at 3:00 pm she would excuse herself and empty her mind of all thoughts and allow her guide to come to her.  Eventually she lost her home, her savings and her mind.

Sorry to say this type of meditation as well as other forms taught by Yoga and others tend to lead to spiritual experiences that are NOT of God. 

There is a Scriptural Meditation that God approves of.
 
I believe you will enjoy this short study as you ponder and consider these few words taken from Gloria Coleman's book  "Scriptural Meditation."
 
 
Scriptural Meditation

(Excerpt from Gloria Coleman’s book
“Daily Scripture Reading and Meditation

 
What Is Scripture Meditation? The Bible tells us in Psalm 1: 2-3 that the person who delights in God’s Word and meditates on that word day and night will be ever green all year round and whatever that person does will prosper.
 
You may be asking the question, – What is scripture meditation?

 One of the Hebrew words used in the bible for meditate is “hagah” and it means to murmur (in pleasure or anger); to ponder, mutter, roar, speak, study, talk, utter. Scripture meditation therefore is when you speak God’s Word to yourself over and over again, think on it, pray it and mutter it.

 
Allow God’s Word to fill your heart and mind. Think on the scripture you have chosen to meditate on and ponder it in your heart. Soon the Holy Spirit will bring you revelation on that Word and make that Word effectual in your life.

 
As you continue to meditate (on the Scripture), faith will rise up in your heart because you will keep on hearing (yourself murmur) the Word.

Suddenly the Word will become life to you and health to all your flesh.

  3. Hazel I have a young friend who is so into new age thinking, he is so confused, trying to mix Jesus with just pure garbage. I am going to send him your post...I am on purpose pouring the word into his life for it is the only thing that will cut through the lie the enemy is feeding his mind. thanks
