Christian Meditation Challenge

DAY FIVE

Giving God Your First Fruits

Before the Meditation:

  • If you need to, re-read the Christian meditation Do's and Don'ts in the Christian Meditation Challenge introduction.
  • Find a quiet location to sit upright and get comfortable.

DEVOTIONAL

How is your thought life lately? Do you find yourself constantly thinking negatively towards anything that you face on a daily basis? Do you always “prepare for the worst” or expect the worse to happen when faced with uncertainty? Do you doubt the power of positive thinking in Christ and how it can transform your day, even your life? Romans 12:2 tells us to “not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” In order to keep your thoughts and emotions aligned with Christ every day, it is important to pay attention to what you are thinking about and why you are thinking that way. God does not want you burdened with negative thoughts and emotions that are detrimental to both your spiritual and physical health. The power of the tongue may be powerful, but the power of your thoughts is just as vital! Are you starting your days with joy and expectancy? Not only does God want us to align our thought life with Him, He also wants us to start each day anew by spending time with him each morning. Giving him your first fruits will not only keep you in a peaceful state, but will also prevent your mind from wandering or being restless. You will be able to stay focused on Him. Before starting today’s meditation, try doing a mental inventory. What about your internal life can you change today?

Open My Eyes Christian Meditation

After the Meditation: 

  1. Sit in silence for a few moments.
  2. Journal about your meditation experience or any new insights.
  3. Don't judge how well you did. All that matters is you did it!
  4. Thank God and yourself for taking the time to BE STILL in God's Presence.
  5. Listen to the meditation again in the evening.

Use the challenge as a morning or evening devotional to draw closer to God and spend time in his presence.
