Take Time to be Still

be stillToday, your God is asking you to do something very difficult, but absolutely necessary in our fast past, hurry-to-go-here, rush-to-go-there world. Ready. Find a spot in your day and be still. You read that right, do nothing but listen to your God.
Turn off your music. Store your head phones. Put away your phone. No texting or emailing. Quiet your heart, close your mouth, open your ears and just be still. Your God wants to talk with you.
Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God.” The God of the universe, your God, notices you and wants to be known by you. He knows exactly where you are, the amount of times your heart beats, the number of hairs on your head and your very name!
You might find this bit of exercising the truth a little difficult, but it’s possible. Your God wants to speak to you. You might have to pick up your biblical tools to shut down some voices in your head (i.e. that load of laundry in the basket calling out, that phone call screaming to be made), but indeed shut them down and simply listen.
Make the time to let your God make Himself known to you today. He will. Remember, your God doesn’t need you to do anything for Him, but wants you to do everything with Him. Your busyness doesn’t impress Him. Your great accomplishments (yeah, doing laundry counts) don’t make Him go, “Wow, I wish I could have done that.”
He is God and wants to be known by and make Himself known to you. Because He’s egotistical? No, because He knows you need it! He is the source of all you’re looking for in life as He is “the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”
Do the really hard thing today. Be still. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at what happens when you do – your God will show up!
