Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. 1st Timothy 4:15
There are different forms of meditation which show the different ways we can engage effectively in meditation for a desirable change. One way we meditate is by musing. This means to deliberately think about something carefully and thoroughly; to be absorbed in thoughts. (Psalm 143:5). This does not entail being absent minded or staring into space but a deliberate concentration of thoughts.
Another way to meditate is through speaking. (Psalm 145:5). This is the highest form of meditation. Here, you also deliberately speak words to program your heart and condition your mind. Meditation is also done through thanksgiving to God as this helps you to see what God can do, by reflecting on what He has done.
The good news is, these forms of mediation can be engaged simultaneously or at different times. Therefore, you can make it a habit to always muse and talk about who God says you are and what God has said you can do, giving Him thanks all the way. This way, nothing would be able to stop you successfully.

G.PRAY FOR A COUNTRY IN NEED TODAY: BELGIUM
26% of the people are unreached with the Gospel. Spiritually, Belgium is one of the
neediest countries in Europe, with great spiritual apathy and faith largely banished from the public sphere; there are now 380 mosques in Belgium.
PRAY FOR BELGIUM; We are praying for the Christians in Belgium, that they will be a shining and burning light to their world.
