Into God's Presence
Drawing closer to God through meditation--a deep form of prayer Many have described Christian meditation as the best-kept secret in the church. This deep form of prayer can lead to direct communion with God. Unlike non-Christian forms of meditation, it is not focused on experiences or requests, but on surrender. We learn the simplicity of being with God. Christian meditation is centered on hearing God and obeying his Word. From this place of intimacy and deep refreshment we gain inner strength, stability, and clarity of vision. Meditation protects our health and well being, ensuring that we have the resources we need to serve God. Meditating on God's Word helps us to know God and his truth, and to apply that truth to our lives. Ultimately, it also reveals the character of Christ so we can become more Christ-like.
