Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
Some people think that because the Jesuits have Spiritual Exercise that we should avoid it and nothing could be further from the truth.
The Jesuits have perverted meditation through the use of the Rosary where they repeat the same words over and over.
This is not God’s plan and it is not healthy to do.
God’s plan is for us to “think” about spiritual things and draw conclusions and lessons from them.
God’s plan is exciting to me because it does become emotional as I consider how much God loves me and how undeserving I am.
I praise God for the Bible on which I meditate.
Prayer is our lifeline to God.
Prayer connects us to Jesus.
Prayer is a beautiful thing.
We need to spend as much time in Spiritual Exercise as we spend in physical exercise each day.
You know how much physical exercise you should be getting. So, now you also know how much Spiritual Exercise you need.
Let’s give God a chance to help us.
Let’s get to know Him through prayer, study and meditation.
