Have you ever found yourself in a place of quietness, not really understanding your momentary need to shut-down, perhaps asking God, “What is it? What is it that you want me to hear?”
How do we go about acquiring direction? What needs to occur so that we will know what move is after this?
We are faced with questions, questions, and more questions.
Psalm 46:10a (NLT) says,
“Be still, and know that I am God!”
When we reach that point of feeling as though we have nothing left to give, that feeling of blah, we must quiet ourselves and listen for the voice of the Lord.
I believe that everyone reaches that point at some time in their life, and during certain unique seasons of life, maybe even as often as on a daily basis. Our lives may be severely active and we may not know what to hang on to or what to release. In many instances, we have various things that try to come against us, all at once, and we need guidance beyond what our limited resources can handle to make things happen. Other times, the reverse is transpiring, and our lives are empty and bleak. No matter the scenario, we find ourselves stalled and unable to see one foot in front of the other. So what does God call us to do?
Be still my son, be still my daughter, and know that I am God.
We do not have the answer, but He does. We may not know whether to keep straight in the way that we are headed (Is this Your way God?), or to make a quick turn to the left or to the right in order to readjust to the path He has for us, but He desires to order our steps. He is over everything and He knows the best path to take.
Stop! Listen! Do you hear Him calling? Speak Lord, I will hear You!
Psalms 85:8 (NLT) says,
I listen carefully to what God the Lord is saying, for he speaks peace to his faithful people. But let them not return to their foolish ways.
