Discover Tips on Where, How, and When to Meditate
Christian meditation is very natural and should be a normal part of every believer’s life.
Keep in mind, as with anything new…
there can be a time of adjustment getting meditation fit into the normal flow of our daily schedule.
Now, how do we go about meditating?
Where and How Should I Meditate?
Meditation can take place almost anywhere. It is probably best to find a quiet, comfortable place with some privacy. A natural setting is ideal. Really, though, it is possible to meditate where ever you find yourself. In your room, at your desk, walking in the park, driving in your car; all of these are just a few options.
Where we meditate is going to depend on the type of meditation and technique to be used.
For example if we intend to do an intense study on a specific subject, we are going to need a quiet, private place where we can read and take notes. The same might be the case in times of meditative prayer confessing scripture and opening our hearts to hear from the Lord.
However, if we’ll be listening to a recording of biblical verses and affirmations to memorize and confess, we could do this while driving or doing daily chores around the house. If you start doing your meditation in the same place every day, your mind and body will begin to know your intention and it will make the process even easier.
What Should I Meditate?
What should we focus on in Christian meditation? There are almost endless subjects from the Word of God to meditate on. The following verse will help us out and is also a great one to check our self with throughout the day.
“Whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” — Philippians 4:8
We might just open the Bible and reflect on something that jumps out and speaks to our heart, or a certain scripture might come to mind. God might also give us an intense interest in a subject as a cue for meditation.
When Should I Meditate?
Christian meditation can take place just about any time. However, there are two key times we can actively turn our minds over to God’s Word for maximum results.
Upon awakening, filling our minds with God’s Word first thing in the morning is a great way to start the day. Meditating on the Word of God just before falling asleep will replay it over and over in our mind during the night.
Regardless of the where, how, what, and when: Our relationship with God should be a priority. Daily time in God’s Word will allow Him to speak to us throughout the day. The divine light can shine in our life through Christian meditation.
