Being Still

Do you need an answer from God but you feel like no one is listening?  When I stop hearing from God, I know it is generally time to get still.

In Psalm 46:10, it says, “Be still, and know that I am God.” I know that sounds so hard with today’s busy lifestyle.

God is speaking but we have allowed ourselves to get too busy to listen.  Being still is not standing in one place.  It is quieting your mind.  Maybe you are trying to figure something out, questioning, and investigating.  You try and figure things out yourself.

Being still is taking control of your thoughts, or better put, to cast down your thoughts. (See 2 Corinthian 10:5) Being still is to wait, don’t try to figure it out, and listen.  (See Psalm 130:5 “I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope.”)

When we put forth effort to get into His presence, and let go of our own thoughts, God will honor our efforts.   After all that is where the fullness of joy is found.

Be Still, and know that I am God.  Psalm  46:10

I would truly enjoy hearing from you.
