Prayer Challenge Four

Devotion:
“…whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” ~ Philippians 4:8-9 (ESV)

Challenge:
Meditation… When you hear the word “meditation” what comes to mind? Do you empty your head of all thoughts? Or do you fill it with Scripture? When people think meditation what typically comes to mind is mantra meditation, repeating a word or sound in order to empty the mind of all distractions. Timothy Keller says, “Christian meditation…stimulates our analysis and reflection—and centers it on the glory and grace of God.” This reflection is the reflecting on Scripture in its context and as it relates to us. How do you reflect on God’s Word?
