Be Still & Know – Beloved Women – September 1, 2020
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: There is much to be learned from being still. God says be still and know me. There is something He wants us to know that we can only know in stillness. Stillness can be hard especially if you are a busy person. Have you ever practiced being still? There is so much you learn from stillness. If you go on a nature hike, get still. You will see things you didn’t see before while moving. Birds seem to be louder. The trees seem to be alive with the glory of the Lord. A moving stream has a voice of its own.
Stillness teaches us a lot. As we get still, we see things about ourselves we wouldn’t otherwise see. God seems closer. His voice seems clearer. We seem more dependent on Him. We see further than our present circumstance. Stillness.
God says to be still and know Him. Know Him. Can’t I know Him in the busyness? In the loudness? Maybe. But, stillness has unique qualities. In the stillness, you are not usually looking at other things that will distract. In the stillness, you are not speaking.
In stillness, you are knowing and being known. In the stillness you will know Him and Him alone.
PRAY: Lord, help me to know You in the stillness in my soul. Help me to be still and hear You. Move all distractions from me and let my heart be still before You this day. Let this day bring something new in the stillness that I have never received before. In Jesus’ Christ name, I pray, Amen.
REFLECT: In what way do you need to garner more stillness in your life?
SHARE: In the stillness, you will know God and Him alone.
