As I sit here and reflect on my week…in the Word…in what God has been speaking to my heart about…I go back to that familiar scripture…“Be still, and know that I am God.”
As if He is saying to my very flesh this morning…
Be still, Meredith. I’m still in control of this world and your world. I have things for you to do…but you must Be Still before I can show them to you. Before you are ready to be used by Me.
Be still in my presence long enough to not just listen…but truly hear.
Be still enough to search me…and let me search you.
Be still and let your heart be open to what I have to say and then Be Still enough to go and do.
In the still, you will find me.
In the still, I will show you Who I am and who you are…and what you can be in me.
Be still and know that I am God. Your God. And I know the wonderful plans I have for you, but you do not. Not yet, because you haven’t been still enough for me to reveal them to you…yet.
Be still and all of these things shall come to pass. In my time. In my will. In my way.
So for now…Be still…and see the beauty in the everyday. The every. day. that I give you.
Be still…and see the beauty in the ashes of your life. Ashes I am making new. And giving life to again.
Be still and see the beauty in the ordinary all around you. What is ordinary to you is extraordinary to me.
Be still and see Me. Everywhere. I am everywhere…you just have to open your eyes and your ears to see.
Be still…and know that I am God. As Christ, I am all, and in all.
Be still today, soul. Be still in me. And let me be still in you.
Praying we will all take some time to be still today. Before a Mighty God that knows us and loves us and has so much to show us. If we will be still enough to let Him.
