Meditation

How are we supposed to meditate Bibically, for answers and guidance? Is there a wrong way? I don't want to do something that could bring the wrong guidance and answers!

    Thank you both for your answers. They are very helpful. I have been so confused as I have been hearing information I have been unsure about from other sources. Maybe I'm high-strung too. I'm not sure. But I have a hard time clearing my mind completely to listen.

    med·i·tate ˈmedəˌtāt

    verb

    To think deeply or focus one's mind for a period of time.
    To think deeply or carefully about (something).
    "he went off to meditate on the new idea"

     

    In my life, I like to get up in the mornings and spend some time alone in a quiet place, if I am at home then my prayer room. I often flip open my Bible and read a page wherever it lands. I pray for while, mostly thanking God for what He has done for me. Then I will pray something like: "Speak Lord for Your servant is listening" (as Samuel did in 1 Samuel 3:10) and sit there a few minutes in the quiet.

     

    Many times the Holy Spirit will speak to me in some way. It may be a mental picture, an impression, or words spoken by a mentor in the past. Often the daily word comes to me during this time of quiet reflection. If you ask for something good from Jesus you will NEVER receive something bad:

     

    “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”” (Luke 11:10–13 NKJV)

    In my opinion prayer is talking to God and meditation is listening to God... If you are focused on thoughts of good and God I don't believe you can go wrong... Hope this helps <3 God bless
