God reminds us through many avenues to Be Still and know that HE is God! All week long different reminders, to stop & listen! In the midst of this concentrated alertness, I could hear the Lord say; "a sprout must poke through the soil, forced is not best, struggle produces strength & patience produces it's own kind." Right away this made so much sense.
Psalm 46:1010 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
God says we are to order our days...The best way to order our days and live them out, is with daily encounters being fully in His presence...
Psalm 90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
An acronym that a friend mentioned to me the other day, (I've heard it before & it's oh So true!) We are in a war, a constant war & guess what? The enemy attacks us by keeping us BUSY! That's right, it's:
That's one place we ought not be. The enemy loves to distract us from the things that will serve us best in God's Kingdom, like reading the word, worshipping, fellowship & Prayer! Now that we look at it, we can see the enemy has been identified. "Hands off", we can boldly say, "I have all the time in the world for Almighty God because He is the Author of All Days"
When we realize how fast the enemy has us zipping about then we can tap the pedal to slow the 'werks' down! Sometimes, it is just a matter of realizing & allowing the Lord, the Right of Way, He can shift a mood, alter the conditions, impart massive blessings and instantly transform anything, any time! Time with Daddy God is always well lived because when we know Him, we know it's NOT "time spent", but rather "time invested", time lived well with the God of endless days.
Sometimes, what needs to be accomplished completely rests in His hands; His ability, His promises, His Miracles or Mercies!...It's then, that we should just be still! It's that space ...where God works!
1 Corinthians 3:1-11 3 Brothers and sisters, I could not address you as people who live by the Spirit but as people who are still worldly—mere infants in Christ. 2 I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. 3 You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans? 4 For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not mere human beings?5 What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe—as the Lord has assigned to each his task. 6 I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. 7 So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. 8 The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. 9 For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.10 By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. 11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Lord, we are FOREVER thankful that we may enter in that place of stillness, under the umbrella of Your unending Love for us. Thank you Father that You so gently remind us that we need to pay closer attention to You, as You are constantly communication to us. It takes patience, practice and persistence to become aligned with that, we have grown accustomed to not notice the ebb and flow of life and Your All Supporting Powerful Presence behind it all! We praise You! In Jesus Mighty Name AMEN!
