A Meditation on God’s Hands Holding Your Life and Everything In It from Daniel 5:23


Dave Cover


The purpose of Christian Meditation for A Bigger Life is to help 21st-century Christians in the always distracted digital age — to connect with God with your whole being — including your body — and to wire into your brain the reality of that embodied connection in each moment. And I think most of us as Christians are often living unconsciously anxious and tense lives with a kind of disconnection between our body and mind, and disconnection between our body and God’s Spirit. Where our “Christian faith” has become almost exclusively about certain beliefs rather than an embodied experience with God’s Spirit who is always 100% present with us and in us in the NOW.

The imagery/imagination of…

Daniel 5:23 NIV

But you did not honor the God who holds in his hand your life and all your ways.


What I’m most interested in for this episode is not necessarily Daniel’s rebuke to Belshazzar, but the truth that Daniel states. This is imagery the Bible gives you to envision with your imagination. That’s what Christian meditation is all about.
