A Christian Meditation on The Spirit Giving Life to Your Mortal Body in Romans 8:11

Christian meditation can help refocus your mind on God's presence using biblical imagery to get the stress, anxiety, and anger out of your heart and out of your body. Description: With your imagination on God‘s Spirit in your body, you’re feeling a kind of transcendent sense of quiet. You’re feeling a sense of quiet wonder at the God who created the universe present inside your body. Giving life to your body. Your body is part of your soul. God cares about your body. And because Christ is in you, you (including your body) are one with God right now in this present moment. Romans 8:11 (NIV) …If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Remember… 1 Corinthians 6:19 (NIV) Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you…? God’s very Spirit lives in you — giving life to your mortal body. Now, (“is living in you” “who lives in you”) and eternally in your future bodily resurrection (“raised Jesus/Christ from the dead”). Use your imagination to feel his life-giving Spirit IN your body right now. Flowing through your veins all throughout your body. Flowing up and down your spine. Giving life to every cell. Every molecule, etc. You’re not imagining something that’s not real. You're imagining something that IS real that you usually imagine isn’t. Too often our false imagination creates a false reality inside our heads. You’re reversing that by using your biblically guided imagination to experience reality instead of unreality. You’re renewing your mind and recalibrating your mind/body connection with the reality of God’s presence around you and within you (Ps 139). We usually don’t think of our lives and bodies according to the reality that every molecule and cell of our body is energized and held together by God. But that’s what the Bible repeatedly tells us.
