Shh! Shh!” God is saying that to some of you. I have heard the Holy Spirit do that. I heard the Lord Shhh me. “Shh! Shh! Shh! Be still. Can’t you sit still for a few minutes?” Leave that alone and be still.
I do not know about you, but there were times I felt like if I stopped talking, God was going to forget I was there. If you have never felt like that, you are an awesome person. However, that was my mentality during my early years with the Lord. I thought the minute I stopped praising, stopped worshiping, or stopped reading the Word; the presence of the Lord was gone (you see I had a lot to learn). What joy I found when read He would never leave me nor forsake me. God never leaves, isn’t that something?
However, we move away from the Lord. We leave Him when we allow sin to come into our lives. We leave when we allow negative thoughts to enter our mind and let them live there. We leave Him when we say we are so busy trying to find God. He never left us. He was right there all the time waiting for us to be still. We may move away from Him, but He never stops loving us. We only need to be still and quietly wait.
Yes, the key is to be still; get quiet, and listen for His still small voice, and be renewed. Isaiah 30:15, says, “… in quietness and confidence shall be your strength” Isaiah talks about being in that place of quietness. There's a special confidence, and strength that we can only receive when we're quiet. When you are obedient and be still before the Lord, He will strengthen you to do the impossible. Don’t you want to do the impossible for Jesus? Come sit at His feet.
Isa. 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk, and not faint.
Are you weary and worn? Do you feel like you just can’t go on? Then, come and sit at His feet. He promises to renew your strength if you wait for Him. He promises that you shall run and not be weary if you wait for Him. He promises that you will walk and not faint if you wait for Him. You shall mount up with wings of eagles if you wait for Him. Come and sit at His feet. Be quiet before the Lord today. There are blessings waiting for you in the presence of the Lord. So, come and be quiet before Him. Blessed Quietness.
Mat 11:28-30 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light
