Is Christian Meditation a Biblical Practice – Does God Want You to Meditate?
Proof Biblical Meditation Empowers Christians!
for many believers these days.
Christians are often misled into thinking
meditation is unbiblical and that
they shouldn’t meditate.
However, this cannot be further from the truth!
Christian meditation is rooted in the Bible. God commands us in the Bible to meditate on His Word day and night so we will obey it.
“You shall meditate day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written.”
— Joshua 1:8
Biblical Meditation References
Take a look at Psalm chapter 119. In this chapter alone, we see that meditation on the Word of God is talked about over and over:
- I will meditate in thy precepts and have respect unto thy ways. (Psalm 119:15)
- Your servant did meditate in your statutes and didn’t bother what others said. (Psalm 119:23)
- I will delight myself in your commandments and meditate in your statutes. (Psalm 119:47-48)
- I will meditate in thy precepts. (Psalm 119:78)
- Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day. (Psalm 119:97)
- I have more understanding than all my teachers: for your testimonies are my meditation. (Psalm 119:99)
We don’t count on man’s knowledge. Instead we count on the Word of God and our God given ability to have the eyes of our understanding enlightened when we meditate on the biblical truths of His Word.
Biblical Examples of Meditation
The Bible gives us examples of great men of God that meditated:
- Isaac went out to meditate in the field. (Genesis 24:63)
- Paul instructs Timothy to meditate on these things so his profiting may appear to all. (1 Timothy 4:15)
- The psalmist prayed that the meditation of his heart be sweet and acceptable to God (Psalm 104:34, 19:14)
- Joshua encourages meditation day and night in order to do it and become prosperous and successful. (Joshua 1:8)
These references and examples are only just a sampling; to prove that yes, Christian mediation is biblical.
Do not be fooled: A reason so many Christians live empty, unsatisfying lives is due to the lack of obeying God’s command to meditate on His Word. Their deep spiritual need to be filled with the life transforming power of God is not being met.
Now that you are armed with this information, why not let God’s divine light shine in your life through meditation? There are many rewards of meditating on the Word of God and it is a major key to living a life of victory as a Christian.
Why not purpose to make Christian meditation a daily habit and get started today?

Confess Success – God Declares You Prosperous and Successful! Do You?
Why Not Agree with God and Confess His Good Success on Your Life?
Prosperous success requires –
having a mindset that strives for success.
God wants you to be successful in all that you do.
God declares you prosperous and successful…
so begin to agree with God’s Word.
Be a person of the Word; speak the Word.
Think and Imagine Success
If we want to stay in a place of growing prosperity and constant success we must diligently seek God and His presence at all times. (Ecclesiastes 8:12) The thoughts and images that we allow God’s Word to create inside of us are powerful forces that cause us to succeed in every part of life – spiritually, physically, and financially.
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” — Joshua 1:8
Meditating and thinking on God’s positive, life-filled words have the power to change your life.
Having prosperous success means regularly speaking and confessing God’s Word. His word will manifest results, but we have to speak it. We can’t expect a life of growing prosperity while we constantly speak the opposite of God’s Word and confess things such as; ‘Nothing I ever do works out.’
“Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.” — Job 22:28
Keep in mind: As you regularly speak God’s words of truth, your negative thoughts of doubt will gradually fade.
Confess and Declare Success
Take time daily to confess and declare over your life the same things that God declares over you. The following is a sample confession to get you started:
‘I declare the good success of God on my life. I confess that I have a spirit of faithfulness, wisdom, diligence and giving. I give bountifully and I reap bountifully. I am blessed coming in and blessed going out. God has given me power to be successful. The light and favor of God are shining on me and I am victory minded in everything I do. I am a winner, an overcomer, and I triumph and live successful to the glory of God. Everything I put my hand to prospers. Success is overtaking me in Jesus’ name.’
Believe me. Once you start to keep God first place in your life, you can expect His blessings. God declares you successful, so begin to agree with the Word of God, observe to do it and make your way prosperous.
May you declare the success of God on your life and live in growing prosperity!
Be blessed to be a blessing –

Christian Meditation – What if My Meditation Time is Not Getting Results?
Insights and Tips into Christian Meditation that Get Results!
is meant to be a part of
every believer’s life.
So what do we do if we’ve been
meditating on God’s Word,
but our lives still seem to be a big mess?
“Meditate day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written.”
— Joshua 1:8
The Faithful Get Results
God commands us to meditate. So we need to practice it regardless of whether or not we think it is making a difference.
The truth is: If we work the Word, the Word will work in our life and make a positive difference.
We’ve already spent our lifetime making a mess of things and filling our mind and heart with junk. Even if we are not seeing positive results, we should continue to obey God’s instruction to meditate and eventually positive results will manifest.
Have you ever found it interesting that the Bible is full of “suddenly” verses? Meditating daily on the power filled Word of God, sets us up for a suddenly.
Let me tell you, when the “suddenly” hits and the eyes of your understanding are opened, your life will begin to transform. So even if you feel like your meditation time is not getting results – Do Not Stop!
You may just be on the verge of a “suddenly”.
Keep in mind: Christian meditation is a form of worship and it honors God. Our heart should be set on the giving of our time to the Word of God and our relationship with Him first; not with a focus of “how will this benefit me.”
A Powerful Biblical Meditation Prayer
Here is a really simple way to have the Word of God come alive in your life: Pray Ephesians chapter one every day. Write it out on a note card and keep it with you always. Record yourself reading it and listen to it daily. Make it personal and put your name into it.
This is just a snippet (wait until you read the whole chapter):
“…God I am asking You to give unto me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You. I’m asking You God, to open the eyes of my understanding, that I may be enlightened, and know the hope of Your calling…”
Do this daily for at least six months. The Word of God will soon become a different book to you. You’ll begin to see things you never did before! At any moment a “suddenly” can happen in your life.
Bottom line: Diligence will eventually be rewarded and obedience does not go unnoticed. Stay a faithful Christian and commit to a life of meditation on God’s Word!
Are you ready to renew your commitment to daily Christian meditation?
God bless you,
