Proverbs 4:21 ‘Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart;’
Meditation is the digestive faculty of the soul. Through meditation the Word travels from our mind to our heart, from information to revelation. This is extremely important because this is what Christ builds His church on – Revelation – what is Light in our soul.
Our eyes should fall on the Word of God everyday. Much of what we read is ‘dead’. The WORD is LIFE – It’s the ‘Word of life’.
Not just positive thoughts or breadth of knowledge, but what has become the light & food of the Word within. Eastern meditation is about emptying the mind. This (Christian) meditation is about filling the mind. Take a scripture & repeat it over in your mind, eventually it breaks open & you see it. This is keeping the Word in the centre of our heart – our lives, our desires, our trust.
