Sometimes we need to slow down, take a deep breath, and get in touch with our inner being, our soul. There are times when we need to be still, but being still and doing nothing are two very different things. Today I am talking about meditation.
“Being still and doing nothing, are two very different things.” – Bible or Not?
Meditation is the deliberate act of being still and communing with the Spirit of God. Christian meditation is to be still, and to know and experience that He is God. We find many Bible passages referring to meditation, there are 32, and most of those are found in the Book of Psalms where there are 24. Find out if today’s quote is in the Bible, or not.
In the previous post we have discussed the implications of the Bible verse from the book of Proverbs, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he” and connected it to the principles of meditation. We also have seen that thought leads to action, and if we feed our minds with worldly or ungodly thoughts our actions will assuredly follow – garbage in, garbage out. Therefore, we should be mindful of what we take in, mindful of what we dwell on and mindful of every thought.
In Part 2 of this post I share additional Bible verses to underscore the connection between our thoughts, our actions, and the outcomes of our lives.
Do you want to be all that God has intended you to be? Then prepare your mind. “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” You are what you think, garbage in, garbage out.
