Day 33

As we explore the 5 keystone habits of Jesus to help us grow in our relationship with God, today we focus on the fourth keystone habit: seeking solitude. • Today’s key thought: Meditation is a powerful practice that helps us connect with God in solitude. Christian meditation is not about emptying your mind, but rather filling your mind with more of God. Not only does it give benefits spiritually, but also it gives many physical benefits as well. • Challenge for the Day: Meditate today. If you don’t know how to meditate, here’s three examples. Pick one and let us how your time in meditation went today and what God filled your mind up with. 1) Stop everything, slow down, and breathe the name of God in and out for three minutes. a. Yod (Out) b. Hey (In) c. Vav (Out) d. Hey (In) 2) Stop everything, slow down, and spend three minutes thinking about Philippians 4:8: “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” a. Think about the following things: i. Something true ii. Something noble iii. Something right iv. Something pure v. Something lovely vi. Something admirable vii. Something excellent viii. Something praiseworthy 3) Stop everything, slow down, and spend three minutes reflecting on any one of these three Bible verses: a. Jeremiah 29:11: “’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” b. Jeremiah 32:17: “Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.” c. Colossians 1:17: “He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” JOIN US for the Online BEING Challenge!
