DIG for Wednesday the 28th of September….be still and know that He is God….Psalm 46 v 10

I’ve been listening to Andrew Wommack this morning giving some great teaching and he said an amazing statement.

He said, “going to church ruined his relationship with the Lord”.

Of course he qualified this statement by saying that it was too much activity that can block spiritual growth, indeed this is what his actual experience was.

We can get so busy, even with very good things and not necessarily with sin, that our relationship with the Lord can become less of a priority to us.

Being too busy “doing good things for the Lord” can make us spend less time with Him.

Even Jesus took time out to spend time with God the Father in prayer, what makes us think that we don’t have to!

We need to spend time with God on a regular basis.

If we are too busy we cannot live out Psalm 46 v 10.

We all need to take time to be still, to sit in prayer and mediation, to sit reading the Word; if we do this we will know He is God.

In order to truly know someone we need to spend time with him or her; the same is true for our relationship with God.

Time with the Lord needs to be a priority in our life; we may even need to stop doing “good” things in order to free up more time.

When did you last sit still for a decent period of time?

When did you last really take an hour or two to focus on the Word of God?

These are questions I will be pondering on this afternoon!

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you want our relationship to improve, thank you that you will give me all the time I need”.

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


DIG for Tuesday the 26th of May…..be still and know that He is God…..Psalm 46 v 10

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
