Reclaiming the Lost Art of Biblical Meditation: Find True Peace in Jesus
Do you long to deepen your intimacy with the Lord? To find a sense of soul-steadying peace? To develop emotional strength? Then you will need to pause long enough to be still and know He is God. Trusted Pastor Robert Morgan leads us through a journey into biblical meditation, which, he says, is thinking Scripture—not just reading Scripture or studying Scripture or even thinking about Scripture—but thinking Scripture, contemplating, visualizing, and personifying the precious truths God has given us.
The practice is as easy and portable as your brain, as available as your imagination, as near as your Bible, and the benefits are immediate. As you ponder, picture, and personalize God’s Word, you begin looking at life through His lens, viewing the world from His perspective. And as your thoughts become happier and holier and brighter, so do you.
The book has lots of information on how to meditate on scripture, the author has had problems with fearful thoughts and finds that by meditating on scripture he overcomes those thoughts and is left with peace. I firmly believe that the word of God can help us get through tough times but without an understanding of the difference of meditating on Gods word vs the world’s interpretation you can get confused. The author does a good job of explaining what true scriptural meditation is. Good information and a guide the reader can use.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
