Hope all is well on this Friday afternoon. The focus for today is learning how to dwell in stillness. Earlier this week, we focused on faith vs. fear. Please follow this link to read on:http://wp.me/p58czA-1N. Have you decided whether or not you going to choose faith over fear? In the midst of dealing with fears it can be difficult to settle our spirit. The fears that we harbor can be real or imagined. As I always say warriors, only you and God above know what you need to deal with in private.
Beloved, being a overcomer is already programmed in your being. God created us that way. Our culture pulls us in many different directions at one time, so it may be difficult to turn down all of the noise and distractions. In order to overcome your fears, and “face the music” in your life we must all be consistent and intentional about being still. Warriors, we must be aggressive about dwelling in the stillness of God. Stillness has often been referred to as being balanced, or centered. Friends, it takes faith to relinquish our fears, worries, or concerns and release them to the Lord. It’s in stillness, trust, quietness, and prayer is where we can be refreshed, renewed, and strengthened in His glorious presence.
Beloved, what do you fear the most? How has your fear caused you to fight or take flight rather than be still and trust God? When can you carve out some time today to “be still” before the Lord and ask Him to deliver you from your fears? (Hudson, Christopher 2009) Psalms 46:1 (NIV) says, God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Friends, realize how powerful that scripture is. God serves as our shelter or protection from all danger or trouble, deals with our problems in a determined and effective way, and will always be an everlasting presence in our lives through Eternity. Friends, God will always be there for us and he’s never going away!
Psalms 46:10 (NIV) says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the Earth.” From the ocular perspective you see that we have a lot going around the world, in our nations, communities, schools, homes, etc. Friends, in the unseen (faith) realm, God is ahead of all of us and making all of the crooked places straight, and working on all our behalf as we speak. How exciting! I want to encourage us not to worry, nor fear because it’s all a part of the process. Trust God and allow Him to be everything you will ever need or desire. Until we meet again, warriors I love you to life!
