“Be still and know that I am God!” The Proverbs candidly informs us that understanding comes from the Lord. He is the awesome omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent God. Above Him is no other. There is an art to being still. Know that He is a majestic triune God. The Father, Son and His Holy Spirit are all in one.
His Word is alive. We should approach His Word humbly and interactively with respect. His Word is distinctly different. It is like no other book. As we navigate through its amazing passages we find it exudes a plethora of spiritual wisdom. It ignites and enlightens our innermost being. We must solicit His Holy Spirit to open our understanding.
Godly understanding is a companion of spiritual wisdom. God does not want us ignorant. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom” Humbly and sincerely ask Him to open your understanding as you journey through His Word. Be sure to read comprehensively with the intent to glean and apply its intended messages to your daily life. The Lord alone knows exactly what we all need.
The Art Of “Being Still!”
God’s marvelous Word is not of man’s interpretation. It requires assistance from His Holy Spirit to open our spiritual understanding.
Life Presents Challenges
Adorn yourself daily with the Armor of God. Whenever life presents inevitable challenges and bombards you on every side His Word helps us to be prepared. If you are not prepared they will take you under. Each day take time to draw even nearer to the Lord and polish up your spiritual armor. Put into practice all that you learn. Be willing to be attentive, conscientious, focused and ready to hear. Be open to conviction and enthusiastically listen from the deepest depth of your being. It is His Truth that keeps your loins protected and your mind sharp!
God’s Spirit transforms us from the inside out. It is also in His presence where you internally re-energize,. You become more aware as your mental telepathy is tuned in to Him. Your inner peace resonates and becomes amplified. Your God-given joy and encouragement is fortified. Remember, grace and peace is multiplied by the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
You can hear from God wherever you are
Keep in mind, the Word of God is “Quick and powerful” meaning it is alive, active! Hebrews 8 tells us that God really will “put His laws in your minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people…” You can hear from This is not something that man can inhibit unless you allow it. Keep your focus upon the Lord. Hebrews also goes on to say that this is the “New Covenant…” Life was not meant to be an aimlessly ephemeral, simple transient excursion.
Christianity is a daily Lifestyle
The people of God down through the generations have gone through some things. This is why Praise and Worship was meant to be a daily lifestyle. Worship keeps us connected to who we are and for whom we were created. To “lift up Holy hands,” inside, outside, whenever or wherever. His Church assembles together large or small, or when “two are three are gathered in My name…” He is in the midst. Jesus should be praised, thanked, edified and magnified. Everyday; “To GOD Be the GLORY!”
His Covenant is a promised agreement. In your leisure take the time to see how throughout the lives of His people God was always meant to be their “Central Theme.” The many preparations, numerous offerings and sacrifices that were made in the Old Testament were mere reminders of the sins of the people and the need to be mindful of God and His principles daily. God always leaves a remnant of His people . Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior through which all was spoken into existence, who is Holy, sinless, blameless, once and for all sacrificed His life for us so we could live life differently.
Fruit of His Spirit
This is why it is vitally important and so relevant to know Him and what He has done for all of us! “God is not a respecter of persons.” As a believer it is significantly important to know that you have a place with Him that is specifically meant for you within His body, His Church not made by hands. His nurturing presence is readily available where ever you are and His plenteous manna accessible ripening the Fruit of His Spirit within your life. Just know with confidence, no one can take it from you. Know Him personally, who He is and what you believe, put your faith and trust in God.
Make is a priority to spend some time each day with the Lord in His Word. God wants to make a difference in your life everyday.
