Be Still

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalm 46:10

Jesus taught us to pray with reverence when He modeled for us ‘Hallowed be Your name
(Matthew 6:9). This phrase is a petition, not a proclamation. A request, not an
announcement. ‘Be hallowed, Lord.” Do whatever it takes to be holy in my life. Take
your rightful place on the throne. Exalt Yourself. Magnify Yourself. Glorify Yourself.
You be Lord, and I’ll be quiet.

Be still, and know that I am God‘ (Psalm 46:10 NIV). This verse contains a command
with a promise.

The command? Be still. Cover your mouth. Bend your knees.
The promise? You will know that I am God.
The vessel of faith journeys on soft waters. Belief rides on the wings of waiting.

In the midst of your daily storms, and in this storm that has swept over our country
and even the entire world, make it a point to be still and set your sight on Him. Let God
be God. Let Him bathe you in His glory so that both your breath and your troubles are
sucked from your soul. Be still. Be quiet. Be open and willing.

Take a moment to be still, and know that He is God

Be still and allow God to be hallowed in your life.

If You Want to Hear God, Get Still and Listen

Pause a moment, Job, and listen; consider the wonderful things God doesJob 37:14 (GNT).

Sometimes as adults we get spiritual wiggles. We cannot get still and be quiet.

But you have to be quiet in order to hear God speak. If you want to hear God’s vision, then you’re going to have to turn off the television. You can’t listen to God and the TV at the same time!

It is possible God never speaks to you because you’re never quiet. Something is always going on in your mind, so while God is trying to get through to you on the telephone of life, he’s getting a busy signal. You’ve got to reserve time alone with God.

The Bible says in Job 37:14, “Pause a moment, Job, and listen; consider the wonderful things God does” (GNT).

God wants to spend time with you. He says, “Pause, be quiet, get alone, and learn solitude so I can talk with you.

Is getting God’s dream for your life worth a day of your life? Have you ever taken an entire day and done nothing but be alone with God? Talk to God in prayer. Let God talk to you through the Bible. Relax. Think. Write down the thoughts he puts in your mind. Set some goals. Look through your schedule. Set your priorities. Spend the day saying, “God, where do you want me to go? What direction do you want my feet headed?

God speaks to people who take the time to listen — not just for a day but also on a regular basis. This is called a quiet time, and it is when we can have an intimate conversation with God.

Talk It Over: – Think about your quiet time. How much time do you spend actually being quiet and waiting on God to speak to you?

– What distractions do you need to eliminate so that you can be still and quiet?
