๐Ÿ‘‘ Be Still And Quiet

In the Scriptures, the Lord repeatedly seeks to impress on our souls the need to be still and quiet. In Psalm 46:10, David records Godโ€™s message: โ€œBe still and know that I am God.โ€ When he was in times of โ€œtroubleโ€ (46:1), David learned it was a good time to reflect quietly on Godโ€™s greatness and help. When an issue about how to properly worship the Lord arose, Moses told the questioners: โ€œStand still, and I will hear what the Lord will command concerning youโ€ (Num. 9:8). Rather than clamor in an emotional state, their need was to wait quietly, listen and learn. When God instructed the prophet Samuel to announce to Saul that he was the choice of Jehovah to be king, Samuel wanted a private time with him away from all distraction. Then he told him: โ€œโ€ฆstand thou still awhile, that I may shew thee the Word of Godโ€ (I Sam. 9:27).

As it was then, so it is now. The best condition to fully comprehend a message from Godโ€™s very words is in a state of quiet attentiveness without distraction. So important is this latter principle that we see Samuel practicing it again in the waning days of his ministry to Israel. He told them: โ€œNow therefore stand still, that I may reason with you before the Lord of all the righteous acts of the Lord, which he did to you and your fathersโ€ (I Sam. 12:7).

We live in a time of too much busyness and distraction, especially with things that will not count in eternity. It is more important than ever for every child of God to recognize the necessity of being quiet and still before the Lord. This is true when we go to church to worship, and it is true every day. It is vital that we purpose to make time for a quiet time with the Lord and His Word each day. source

Verse for 9/26/2017

For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. — Hebrews 10:30-31
