“Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10, NIV).
In this day and age, our culture has gotten used to having constant activity going on: computers, cell phones, television, email, video games. There’s nothing wrong with any of that stuff, but the Bible tells us that we need to stop and be still so we can focus on knowing God. I’ve found this to be true especially during the difficult times. When you are facing a challenge, it’s easy to want to run to a friend or talk about it with a co-worker, but at some point, you have to stop and say, “God, I rest in You. I know You have me in the palm of Your hand.”
Remember, our battles are spiritual battles. The people in your life aren’t the source of your problems, the forces of darkness are. When you choose to be still and know that the Greater One lives on the inside of you, you are putting yourself in a position of strength. So today, take time to be still before Him. Let His peace cover you. Let Him refresh you by His Spirit. Remember, the battles you face belong to the Lord. Be still before Him so you can see His hand of victory in every area of your life!
A Prayer for Today
Father in heaven, I humbly come before You. I choose to be still before You. Speak to my heart so I can know You more. Fill me with Your peace as I put my trust in You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Everyday is a challenge. I wish I could pick up the phone to hear your voice one more time. I know that God never makes mistakes, but I can’t help but wonder why He took you so soon. I miss you. Thank you for your genuine gift of friendship and sisterhood. It’s hard, but I’m learning to live with a broken heart.
Love you forever.
My niece, Beyonce, and I…My my my how time flies! She’s such a 12 year old. In her own little world.
Its completely humbling to pray and hear God’s response to your prayers. I thank God everyday for His blessings, but I can’t remember thanking him specifically for giving me the gift of hearing His voice. For that, I am so very thankful.
There are so many precious moments that I would love to use as a testament to His love, but they are so indescribable that it is only something that God and I can understand. After all, special things should be kept special right?
I will, however, let the world know how everything turns out. At this moment, I know that a God given vision will always be fulfilled. It’s been confirmed!
I keep forgetting I have this Tumblr account thingy… I’ll do better! *PROMISE*
A good friend told me that when you pray for patience, you seemingly and ultimately pray for the patience to endure trials and obstacles that come your way.
I must admit, I agree…
I’ve come to a point in my life where I’m expecting God to do so much in life. I’m going to make it my business to not pray for the patience to wait for it, but the ability to remain faithful and trust that God’s promises will manifest.
I feel victorious already.
