In Eastern occult religions, meditation means emptying the mind. But Biblical meditation is the opposite - it's filling the mind with God's truth. Some Christians don't like the idea of meditation because they've only seen it demonstrated in a corrupt way through the diabolical religions. But if you have ever worried about something, you already know how to meditate.
Meditation is the activity of calling to mind, and thinking over, and dwelling on, and applying to oneself, the various things that one knows about the works and ways and purposes and promises of God. It is an activity of holy thought, consciously performed in the presence of God, under the eye of God, by the help of God, as a means of communion with God.Its purpose is to clear one's mental and spiritual vision of God and to let His truth makes its full and proper impact on one's mind and heart.
Prayer, meditation and temptation make a minister
Whenever I go for a walk I take a verse of Scripture as I would a sweet on the end of my tongue and suck every drop of sweetness from it
Failure to meditate in the Scriptures is one of the major reasons why so many Christians live barren and unfruitful lives.
To make bible meditation of this kind a regular practice is to ensure a mind filled with wholesome thoughts. An alien thought trying to sneak in among such blessed company will be as obvious as a hippopotamus trying to sneak unnoticed into your bath
There once was a small boy who banged on a drum all day and loved every moment of it. He would not be quiet, no matter what anyone else said or did. Various attempts were made to do something about the child. One person told the boy that he would, if he continued to make so much noise, perforate his eardrums. This reasoning was too advanced for the child, who was neither a scientist nor a scholar. A second person told him that drum beating was a sacred activity and should be carried out only on special occasions. The third person offered the neighbors plugs for their ears; a fourth gave the boy a book; a fifth gave the neighbors books that described a method of controlling anger through biofeedback; a sixth person gave the boy meditation exercises to make him placid and docile. None of these attempts worked. Eventually, a wise person came along with an effective motivation. He looked at the situation, handed the child a hammer and a chisel, and asked, "I wonder what is inside the drum?" No more problem.
