Stillness Before God

Since we started this journey of disciples making disciples, I have been challenged over and over in my Spirit to be sure to slow down and be “quiet”; to be Still. I am sure many of you can relate to that prompting. As the Holy Spirit would have it, one of my morning devotionals spoke this loud and clear! The author of this devotional talked about how one of the most important things we can learn is how to be still.
One of the most significant reasons so many of us are burned out and stressed out is that we don’t know how to be still. We learn to hear His still, small voice by spending time getting to know Him. That is the only way we can get the clear direction that He has laid out for each of us.
We need to learn to be quiet on the inside and stay in that peaceful state so that we are always ready to hear the Lord’s voice. If we will just slow down and quiet our minds enough to hear His promptings, we can live in a place of peace, ready to respond obediently.
Won’t you join me in being more intentional in practicing to be still in your heart?
