I Will Meditate and Then Destroy You

June 8, 2024

In i will meditate and then destroy you, Michaela Coel portrays Arabella, a millennial writer with all that anyone could ask for: a bestselling book, a great relationship, and supportive friends. But when she's spiked at a club and slowly recollects images of a sexual assault, her world falls apart. The BAFTA- and RTS Award-winning miniseries is the first time Coel has taken on so many roles, serving as the creator, showrunner, director, and star.

Ultimately, this film and series is about the power of words to transform, or destroy. When spoken in a spirit of pride, the words of Scripture can be used to condemn, but when spoken from a heart filled with the grace of Christ, they can be an instrument of healing and hope. This is what makes Biblical meditation so powerful.

When you meditate, don't let your quiet time end when you finish reading your Bible. Meditate on the truth throughout the day and return to it regularly. The more you meditate on the Word, the more it becomes a part of your life and the more natural it will become. The goal of biblical meditation is not just to learn more about God, but to change your life so that you live in accordance with the Word of God. (James 1:22-note).

During your time of meditation, consider choosing verses that relate to what you are already studying in Scripture. This helps you avoid misinterpreting a verse out of context and also deepens your current study.
