So I'm just sitting here reflecting on my personal journey with meditation(I'm teaching it tomorrow @8am) and thought I'd rehearse my testimony on yall! Enjoy!
Spring of '06 I was in an Encountering God Service at ZHOP's first prayer room. I started feeling despair in my heart because I was watching people younger than me quote bible verses with understanding and revelation and passion on their hearts. I was on the brink of a crisis man... "What does God need me for?" So I asked the Lord, “What can I do?” my mind started frantically racing, “Seminary... On-line Bible School... One year bible reading plan! AAAAAHHH!!”
Then came the chill small voice, "Tom, if you will take one verse out of the scripture and give yourself to meditating on it, I will grant to you a lens by which you can consume My entire Word."
Two days later I'm in the prayer room journaling about my lens experience and a friend walks up to me and hands me a lens from a pair of sunglasses and says, "The eye of the Lord is not veiled." WOW!
My point is not, 'look at me I had an encounter' but, 'look at God, He likes meditation.' God wants to give each of us our own experiences and testimonies with meditation. It's really on His heart to encounter His people in His Word and to have a people that hide His word in their hearts that they might not sin against Him! Amen and Amen!
