Blog: The Importance of Meditation

  • The Importance of Meditation
""Meditation is one of the Godly exercises that you must practice for a life of dominion and glory. It is a vital activity for every child of God, and its power cannot be overemphasized.."."

My name is Pastor Max SAMOISY from Mauritius. I had the opportunity to attend the Minister’s Visitation Program with my beloved wife, Pastor Lysiane SAMOISY, twice in the years 2014 and 2016. Having heard of the Man of God Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and his ministry of healing, we went for the MVP with an open heart.

We have been so much exposed to the miraculous healings taking place in his Ministry from TV that we wanted to be a part of this program. In fact, we hungered and thirsted for the fulfilment of our Ministry and God’s divine plan for our local church. We wanted that boost in our Ministry so, with high expectations, we went for the program.

God be praised that our thirst was quenched much beyond our expectations. Glory!!

We got the glorious opportunity to visit the Healing School during the MVP, where we witnessed a myriad of healing miracles and deliverances in all their forms. The atmosphere was electrifying; truly an atmosphere for miracles. Praise God!

And the most beautiful part was that we got to meet the Man of God, Pastor Chris Oyahilome whereby we received an impartation of the Holy Spirit which and this led our Pastoral Ministry to a higher dimension.

Back in Mauritius, this same Mimshach anointing that we partook from the MVP we delivered to our local church leaders and members. Oh boy! From then on, our Pastoral Ministry and local church has not remained the same at all.

I am forever grateful to God for connecting me with Christ Embassy and the ministry of Pastor Chris, and for the privilege of partaking with the anointing that rests on him and his Ministry.

Also, I will like to extend my deepest gratitude to Reverend Chris Oyakhilome, Dsc. DD, for the setting up of such kind of programs, as inspired by the Holy Spirit.

I am from Trissur, a city in south India.  I’ve been in ministry for the past 16 years and our Lord and savior Jesus Christ has poured His grace abundantly upon me to learn the word of God, at the same time to teach also.

I desired to attend a meeting with our dear man of God, Pastor Chris in his church directly. My strong desire was as a result of witnessing the mighty works of our God in a seminar which held in 2010, with man of God, Pastor Chris. My Lord Jesus was very gracious to me that He opened a door that I could attend MVP in March 2016.  Attending MVP changed my life completely as I was lifted up to another level of the spiritual. This meeting not only changed my spiritual life but also my mindset, thought process and visions. The testimony of “soul winners” influenced me.

I want to emphasis that the teaching session of Pastor Chris impacted me that my perception was completely changed. I attended the impartation service with full of prayer and submission, I was slain in that meeting even though I did not have any supernatural experience. But that very night, when I started to pray in my room, I experienced a burning flame on my head and I couldn’t sleep for the next two days. I was in a different world and I was continually praying for the deliverance of nations with an earnest desire. The Lord filled my heart with a heavy burden for worldwide revival, revival of souls from the death to life. 

When I came back to church in my home country, I could see step by step changes. The manifestation of power of Holy Spirit started, miracles and wonders started to happen, many had encounters of angels, some started to hear audible voice of Lord. I started an on-line bible school to teach these Christ centered visions and almost 300 members are there to this date, I am following Pr. Chris teaching in the class.  I praise our Lord and savior Jesus Christ for taking us to a higher level of spiritual life through this ministry, all the glory and honor to Him and Him alone.

For a long time, many of god’s children equated meditation with just thinking or pondering over the word. However meditation is much more than thinking deeply on a subject. That is just one aspect of meditation; there’s more to it revealed in god’s word.

Meditation is one of the Godly exercises that you must practice for a life of dominion and glory. It is a vital activity for every child of God, and its power cannot be overemphasized.

In Joshua 1:8, the Bible says “this book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate on it therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”

 Three levels of meditation

The word “meditation” in the verse of scripture above is translated from the Hebrew word “hagar” which means to “imagine; mutter”. It also means to “roar”. This immediately tells us that there are three levels of meditation, each of which is vital.

1.  The first level of meditation is to visualize God’s Word as you study it. This means to ponder or think quietly on God’s Word in pictures. As you keep these pictures in your mind, the Word will be driven into your spirit and will take root there.

2. The second level of meditation is to mutter God’s Word. This means to speak God’s Word under your breath, to yourself, over and over again. As you do this, the Word will become personal to you. It will go beyond the written page, beyond the reading of your mind and intellect, into your spirit. It will become God’s Word to you, and not some distant words written in the Bible.

3.  The third level of meditation is to roar God’s Word! At this stage, you shout God’s Word out loud. In the book of Isaiah 31:4, the Bible says, “For thus hath the Lord spoken unto me, like as the lion, and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them…”

In this verse of scripture, the Bible beautifully translated the same Hebrew word “hagar” as “roar”. The purpose of this kind of meditation is to drown every other thought in your consciousness, including thoughts that the devil may try to bring and cause the Word of God in your spirit to rise. When you begin shouting God’s Word to yourself like this, some other folks may think something is wrong with you, but continue. The Bible says “…for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success”.
