Psalm 46:10 “He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Word of God Speak
Excerpt from song:
Word of God speak
Would you pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
To be still and know
That you’re in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In your holiness
Word of God speak
I’m finding myself in the midst of You
Beyond the music, beyond the noise
All that I need is to be with You
And in the quiet hear Your voice
Family, it is good to be silent and to be still before God. To clear our minds of the world and focus solely on God and to, with great and certain expectation, call out/whisper/cry out to, our God. Like the child who would become the Prophet Samuel’s response to God “Speak, for your servant is listening.” (1 Samuel 1:10) Then God spoke and Samuel heard the voice of God. Family, stop, think about this, Samuel heard God speak to him! Wow, wow, wow! Doesn’t everyone who loves God want to hear from Him? After all Jesus said that His sheep will hear His voice (John 10:27). There is nowhere in the New Testament that states that God will stop speaking to His children. Nowhere! It is not weird that our Creator would know how to, and would, communicate with us.
Luke 12:11-12 states that when we are to answer questions about the Lord, we should not worry because “the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.” I hope we all have had that experience because we have put ourselves in that place and listened for God to guide. When God speaks He does it differently at different times. We should think of it as God communicating with us. We should think of it as Him communicating with us and He can speak to us through His Word, through thoughts, and yes, we can hear His voice. Let no-one rob us of any of the forms that God speaks to us through. God speaks to us. He is always speaking to us. If we hear from God is not a matter of whether He is speaking to us, but if are listening.
Family, let us all, every day, be still, be quiet and listen for God to speak to us. To guide us. And to comfort and quiet our souls. Let Him pour through us with living water in an abundance that we cannot contain and let the Spirit of God flow into us, and through us, into the world. Family, this is not a doctrine of men for us to consider, it is Biblical. It is in the Word and so it is true. True for the early church and true for us. God wants to speak to us, to bless us with His presence in order that we would be whole and full of His love and joy. All good stuff! Family, make time for the Lord. Stop, be still, focus solely on Him. Let these thoughts of David be our thoughts “Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed; 4 I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids, 5 Until I find out a place for the Lord, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.”(Psalm 132:3-5) Let us not rest till we have heard from God. Let us not begin our daily obligations until we have heard from God. Love, joy and peace come to those in whom the Lord dwells. Let us be still, let us clear our thoughts, and let us wait on and call out to God to speak to us. You know, He already is. The question is “Are we listening?”
Psalm 150:6 – Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!
Micah 7:7 – But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.
Micah 6:8 – He has shown You, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of You but to do justly, to love mercy, And to walk humbly with Your God.
