Some Christians shy away from meditation, wondering whether it’s dangerous or not in line with what the Bible teaches. The truth is quite the opposite – we are protected when we are filled with God’s Spirit!
Gloria Copeland does a brilliant job of summarizing, “According to the Scriptures, God encircles, encompasses, covers and shields those who make Him their refuge. His presence—the anointing—is a kind of force field of protection making you inaccessible to the enemy no matter what the circumstances.”
It’s not enough to receive Christ, God or the Holy Spirit once. When we read scripture, practice meditation, contemplation, prayer, and sing worship songs we can continually receive restoration and renewal of God’s living water, his Spirit. “He who believes in me…From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water. But this he spoke of the Spirit.” (John 7:38-39).
