Calmness of being Still
Be STILL and know that He is God...
We live in a world were it’s go, go, go, go! It has to be done right now ! We have to give a reply back right now! We need to give a defense right now! We need an answer right now!!
But God is calling us to BE STILL! You see, when we purposely stop what we are doing. When we tune everything out that wants our immediate attention and wait on God. Then we can hear from God clearly.
One of my favorite verses to quote, that causes me to pause, be still,
and seek God’s direction, says this...
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
When we allow our Spirit to be still, then We can clearly hear from God, the answers that we our seeking.
Psalm 46:10 (NIV)
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth
