Psalm 46:10 – “Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.” (NLT)
Due to the world’s system, several things contend with the time of God’s children. The main issue with modern Christians is that they are too divided inwardly and outwardly to focus on God. There are social media distractions and busy schedules that deprive people of fellowship with God. Anything that takes God’s portion in the equation of our lives is a destroyer. Therefore, we must jealously guard our relationship with God.
The fact that God is a Spirit does not give us the right to disregard Him. God is with us and will never keep silent whenever He wants to communicate, but we need to be still to hear Him. Today’s Bible reading shows the extent to which God values quietness when we are in His presence. Quietness represents complete devotion to worshipping God and listening to what He says. The Psalmist was able to discern God’s heart because of his regular “private time” with the Lord. If we desire clarity in divine direction, we have to work on the quality of attention we give to the Holy Spirit.
Beloved, apart from the spiritual significance of quietness, whenever we maintain a calm posture, it gives assurance of peace even in the storm. This is because a calm heart thinks better than a troubled mind. I encourage you to always be still in God and know that He is in control of everything (Isaiah 26:3). May the Lord grant you the peace that passes all understanding, in Jesus’ name. Amen!
