Meditation: How to Study the Bible in the Presence of God by @MarkVirkler

Meditation: How to Study the Bible in the Presence of God offers a brief introduction to biblical meditation, which the author defines as “God’s Spirit utilizing every faculty of my heart and mind, bringing forth revelation which ushers in transformation.”

Meditation involves asking God to open the eyes of your heart so you can understand (Ephesians 1:18) what He wants to show you. Many times this looks like a verse leaping off the page at you that God says is exactly what you need right now.

“Meditation is intently seeking God’s revelation, resulting in God disclosing Himself to you.”

– Mark and Patti Virkler, Meditation: How to Study the Bible in the Presence of God

Through a process of prayer, identifying areas of personal need, and targeted study of those areas, the process of meditation brings about personal transformation because it is God-guided. Think of meditation as studying the Bible in the presence of God, with your Savior directing you and enlightening your heart and mind to new truths to apply to your life.

Although it is only 60 pages long, Meditation includes plenty to keep you busy if you’re willing to take the time. Mark Virkler has the gift of teaching so he includes all the relevant details and activities to help you fully grasp the concepts. For instance, there are a couple lists of verses, such as every reference to meditation in the Bible. Taking time to mark these in your Bible would be a worthwhile endeavor.

“Mountain-moving faith is conceived by a rhema and vision from God, which when incubated through pondering, speaking and acting, births a miracle in God’s fullness of time.”

– Mark and Patti Virkler, Meditation: How to Study the Bible in the Presence of God
