Growing Prosperity Productions Presents: “CHRISTIAN MEDITATION GUIDE: Biblical Answers To The Top 20 Questions About Meditating God’s Word” by Brenda Marsolek.
This book was published late February 2012 and is now available for purchase as an ebook and print book.
I discovered that there is a lot of confusion, and many questions when it comes to the topic of Christian Meditation. Yet, God makes is very clear in the Bible that –
YES, Christians need to Meditate His Word!
So let’s get started clearing up the confusion. I’m sure you too have had some of the same questions included in this book…and I trust the answers will help open the eyes of your heart, as they did mine, to the mind and life-transforming power of meditating the living Word of God!
I originally addressed and wrote these Christian Meditation questions and answers, in December 2009. I published them online individually as articles and also as an email series.
This Christian Meditation Guide is now expanded and published in book form as a response to the requests to have it compiled in one handy reference.
My prayer and desire is that this resource is a blessing to you, and that you are encouraged and inspired to make Christian Meditation a daily part of your life. I pray that you will be empowered with Gods’ Word and live always in the peace of his presence!

Powerful Meditation – Can Christian Meditation Bring Revelation of Eternal Mysteries?
Biblical Meditation for Revelation of Eternal Mysteries
of discovering truths
found in God’s Word.
Every believer should have a
heart to want to meditate the
Word of God daily;
since this is how
biblical truths are revealed.
God’s Word is packed full of eternal mysteries just waiting for the diligent, faithful believer to discover. And just as discoveries in the natural world, benefit society, so do spiritual discoveries found in the living Word of God.
Consider the natural law of electricity, which has always been. Once discovered, the world was forever changed. Now consider God’s spiritual laws revealed in His Word. They have the greatest power for transformation in all areas of our lives.
An Invisible Reservoir of Abundance
“It’s almost as if there is an invisible reservoir of abundance in the universe that can be tapped if you will just obey certain spiritual laws.”
— Norman Vincent Peale
Believers who meditate the spiritual truths of God’s Word are sometimes compared to scientists in the natural realm. Why? Because in a very real sense, it involves the study and experimentation of God’s laws; which then result in discovery. And this discovery is God’s revelation to us. What people tend to call discovery is really the revelation of God.
Spiritual wonders and revelation await us when we begin to meditate on the laws of God. If we will meditate day and night on the Lord and on His Word, we will be the ones bringing the latest revelations to the world.
It first takes meditation on the information acquired from the Word of God, in order to receive revelation. Information alone will not bring revelation. Revelation knowledge comes from meditation in the Word of God and is revealed by the Holy Spirit.
God is a spirit and His truths are revealed through our spirit.
Ephesians 1:17 shows Paul praying to God, and asking that He would give unto us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. This is not just information, but revelation knowledge revealed by the Holy Spirit.
Christian meditation, on biblical truths, opens the door to life transforming power; by allowing the Holy Spirit to reveal revelation knowledge.
It gets even better. When believers mix their faith with the revelation knowledge of God’s Word, they soon manifest the blessings and promises of God in their life.
Are you ready to do what it takes to allow life transforming revelation knowledge to come into your life?
Why not get started today making Christian meditation on the Word of God a daily habit?
God bless you always,
How Can Christian Meditation Renew My Mind and Renew My Life?
Does Biblical Meditation Really Have the Power to Renew You?
living, and powerful Word of God.
Does it have the ability to renew
our minds and lives?
How do we know? God says so.
“Be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.”
— Romans 12:2
Renew Your Mind With Biblical Meditation
When we meditate on the Word of God we release the thoughts of our mind and put on the mind of Christ. There is an exchange for the world’s way of thinking with a renewing of our mind with God’s way of thinking.
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.”
— Philippians 2:5
More good news: As believers we have the Holy Spirit living within us as a powerful aid to meditation. Jesus told us that the Father will send the Holy Spirit in His name to teach us all things and bring to remembrance all things Jesus said. (John 14:26)
There is great power in affirming the revealed truths of God’s Word!
“An affirmation is a statement of Truth consciously used so as to become the directing power of Life’s expression.”
— Orison Swett Marden
Renew Your Life With Biblical Meditation
The answer to renewing our life is found in the Word of God; in which we meditate and renew our mind with day and night.
Through the power of the Word of God and by meditation on it, we align ourselves with God’s thoughts, God’s provision, and God’s ways. God’s will is found in His Word. There is no greater and exciting place to be than in the center of God’s will.
Matthew 12:34 declares, “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.”
With meditation we can challenge every thought that resists the knowledge of God by speaking the Word of God. Meditating, confessing, and acting on His ways holds life transforming power.
In Joshua 1:8 he advises: “Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”
I could go on and on…
The point is: As we renew our mind through meditation on the Word of God, we’ll soon find that the life transforming power of His Word renews our life!
Are you ready to let the divine, living, and powerful Word of God renew your mind and life through Christian meditation?
God bless you always,

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?
God bless you always,
How Does Christian Meditation Compare to Other Forms of Meditation?
Traditional Forms of Meditation vs. Christian Meditation
It is the Word of God that saves, delivers, instructs, and
empowers, believers to live a successful life.
There are some key differences between
traditional forms of meditation and Christian meditation:
Meditation on the Living Word of God
The Bible is the foundation and source of life for every Christian believer. The truths of the scriptures are the object of their meditation. Meditating on God’s Word manifests success. The Word of God is full of living power. (Hebrews 4:12) God’s Words are spirit and they are life. (John 6:63) It is through His words that God spoke creation into existence.
“In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
— John 1:1
Christian believers focus their meditation on God Most High.
In traditional meditation, the focus is on self. The object of focus may be referred to as the “higher self” or spiritual self. A physical item, such as an idol may be used as a representative object to focus on. Or a word or sound may be the object of focus while practicing traditional meditation.
Meditation Power with the Word of God
Meditation, for the Christian believer, is practiced so that their hearts and minds can be filled with biblical truths. It is a way to renew their minds and be transformed into the image of Christ. It helps them become more like Christ daily.
The Christian meditator fills their thoughts with the promises of God, and the ways of God, by meditating on His Word. Revelation of His truths connects and draws them closer into fellowship with the living God. Then, action taken on revealed biblical truths, manifests success and prosperity in their lives.
The traditional meditator seeks to empty their thoughts by focusing on a simple mantra until they have cleared their consciousness of all thought as much as possible. The goal is to achieve peace and relaxation.
Reaching and tapping into one’s higher self may result in a greater conscious level of peace, awareness, and relaxation. Yet even at the peak of one’s highest level, they are nothing without God.
“In Him we live, and move, and have our being.”
— Acts 17:28
It is God, the creator of the heavens and earth, who is the source of all; the beginning and the end. The Word of the Lord endures forever. It is in Him that we live and move and have our being. It is with God that all things are possible and it is with God that nothing is impossible.
Now that you know this: Why not open the Word of God and meditate on His promises and allow them to manifest in your life?
God bless you always,

Christian Meditation: My Life Is So Busy! How Much Time Should I Spend Meditating?
Find Out How to Fit Meditation into Your Already Busy Schedule!
Most believers understand it is important to meditate.
Yet at the same time, they can feel overwhelmed with the pressure of life’s demands and the thought of adding one more thing to their schedule.
When the topic of meditation comes up, the question often heard is: “But how can I? I just don’t have time!”
So true! There is no time in your schedule for meditation – until you make it!
Fitting God Into Your Schedule
We all know there will never come a time when the TV turns itself off, and the kids are quietly playing, and the phone doesn’t ring, and the “to do” list is complete, and our mind has nothing to do but meditate!
Distractions are a part of life and we have to purpose to fit meditation into our schedule. We have to choose to make it a priority.
Keep in mind: The easiest way to fit meditation into your schedule, and make it a daily habit, is to meditate at the same time and in the same place every day. But like I said, other things will always want to intrude.
The important thing is to be flexible, but purpose to make meditation on God’s Word a daily habit.
You might want to try a five minute devotional first thing in the morning to start your day off right and give yourself a positive focus. Then listen to a biblical meditation or Christian affirmation CD while driving, doing chores, or on a break. Another five to ten minutes, of some method of prayer or meditation, before going to sleep will also have a powerful impact.
Power To Change Your Life
Meditation can help bring peace and balance to our lives. One of the main reasons we are currently in a rat race and so busy spinning our wheels, is because our lives are out of line with God’s Word.
Needless to say, the only way to change this situation is to gain a greater understanding of how God would have us to live. We then adjust our lives to this new understanding and trust God to help us and guide us. As a result, things will begin to turn around.
“He will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Him.”
— Isaiah 26:3
I think you get the point. The key is that we have to choose to fit God into our schedule. We have to choose to make the time, and create the opening for meditation. The Bible tells us to meditate day and night. So we need to be sure and get our minimum daily requirement of the Word!
The good news is: Time spent in the presence of God empowers us to break free of the rat race and live successful. In fact, you’ll tap into a “hidden power” that has been available to you all along.
Are you ready to fit God into your schedule and create a daily habit of Christian meditation?
God bless you always,
