We all live busy lives, always occupied, always on the go.
Let me ask you a question tonight, and it is a question I also ask myself.
When was the last time you sat in real peace and quiet and sat still?
If you are like me these times of sitting still in the quiet are very rare; the times I do sit I normally have music on or the radio, or I am reading something.
It is not often that I sit still and in complete silence, but this is something that we should all be doing.
The Psalmist recommends that we do this in order to know God.
The word “still” does not just mean to sit and not move; it means to contemplate, to meditate, and to reflect.
It means to take time to consider God and His goodness and all that He has done for us.
It also means to listen; sitting in a reflective and meditative state will help us hear from God.
1 Kings 19 v 12 says God speaks to us in the “still, small voice”.
In order to hear that voice we must be still and we must be listening.
If we sit and if we listen then we will hear; this is a promise when Jesus said that His sheep would hear His voice (John 10 v 27).
Take some time out soon to sit and listen, I plan to do this very thing!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you speak to every single one of us, and I thank you that you speak to me”.
Psalm 46 v 10…..Be still and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth
