Be Still And Know That He Is God


Today there is no thought of going online and reading any news.  This is a day to hide indoors with my Father in heaven and hear His still small voice.  Many voices are speaking in this hour and it is overwhelming if one does not know the word of  God.  Then for those prophetic voices who want to hear the Lord clearly we realize we cannot be reading other prophetic words as we need to be sure we are hearing clearly from God ourselves.  

Today it is inclement weather, winter is here and the bible says so long as the earth exists, sowing time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night will not cease. Looking outside through my patio doors I am actually enjoying seeing the snow fall in what is the first real winter snow storm.  Last night it rained and so we have had a mixture of snow and freezing rain till this morning. 

It is a great indoor day to get ever closer to the Lord.  To shut out the world and all the crying voices, even for just a moment.  Silence is at times golden.  No television but the clock ticking on the wall reminding me to redeem the time because the days are evil.  As I came downstairs this morning it was and still is my intent to dig into the Word of God and sit with my heavenly Father.  How good is our God to sometimes send us blustery, cold winter days to give us time indoors with Him.

Yes, there is much to prepare for, but the preparation of our hearts is the most important.  Many are stressed and feeling the pressures of the season, and the pressures brought to bear with all that is going on in this world.  Father sees it all and we must sit with Him to see it through His eyes.  He is a God who never slumbers or sleeps.  We are reminded of the disciples who fell asleep when they were to be watching with Jesus and could not watch even one hour.  Today it is my intent though the flesh is weak to sit with Father and just enjoy His presence.  Asking for nothing but being thankful for who He is.  

Are you thankful today for who Jesus is and what He has done in your life?  Then why not take time aside from your busy schedule, stop what you are doing if you are able, if not now but sometime today and just thank Jesus, for the price paid for your freedom.  Truly He paid the price in full and has done much in our lives.  Let us praise Him today for who He is and see the glory of the Lord manifested in our lives.

So long as the earth exists, sowing time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night will not cease. Genesis 8:22 (CJB)

Seek Adonai while he is available, call on him while he is still nearby. Isaiah 55:6 (CJB)
