Day # 3 February 19th - Stillness

Psalm 46:10 “Be Still and Know that I am God.” We do everything on the run. We eat on the run, we talk on the phone in the car, we can even send emails at the dinner table, text a friend while waiting for an appointment, and check our stocks while waiting in line at the grocery store. We are a people who are constantly moving. Even our spiritual life can be guilty of too much at one time. In fact, most of us Christians have Spiritual A.D.D. We miss out on so much of what God is saying to us because we do not stop long enough to hear his voice. Is it any wonder that God gave us a Sabbath? He knows we are a people who like to busy themselves with “important tasks.” However, in the midst of our business we have tuned out God’s voice. Today find time to sit up in a chair and be still for 15 minutes. If you cannot do 15 minutes than try 10. Try reading Psalm 23 then set down your Bible, close your eyes and just be still and listen knowing that God’s promise of protection and presence is there. Our time of prayer should not be only a time of speaking, but listening. Try being still, listen for God’s voice.
