Although the bulk of this Psalm is in third person, in this verse, the voice of God is loud and clear. In our over-scheduled, cacophonous society we rarely have the inclination or ability to simply be still and let God move. If we are frantic, pushing and shoving our way in the world; we cannot hear the still small voice of God or relax and let his will be done. It takes patience and practice to embrace the silence and listen. Are you willing?
Perhaps this comes from my Quaker upbringing, but I find that people talk too much and listen too little, whether to God, their own hearts or to others. --Beverly Robertson
Prayer for today: Almighty and all powerful God, we love You and bow before You humbly this day. Help us, we pray, to still ourselves, body, mind and spirit that we might somehow take in the magnificence of all that You are. Remind us, in that quiet space, of Whom we are serving. We ask in the name of Jesus, whom scripture tells us often withdrew to a quiet place to be with You. AMEN!
Confession for today: I confess that in quiet, with an open heart, I am best able to seek The Lord my God. I will make time to step back in quiet humility to seek The One Jesus died to reconcile me to. I declare this by faith in His name. AMEN!
