Yes it’s a choice,
But it’s also a skill.
It is very much learned.
And it is one of the best things you will ever set out to do.
When we are still, our faith in the absolute truth of God is realized.
We sense His presence. He is close.
We feel His arms wrap around us, almost tangibly.
Our ears are attentive to that still small voice.
We then can act. We are directed. We know where to go next.
Taking time to intentionally slow down and focus is the starting point to seeing the deliverance of God. We recognize His omnipotence. We remember the times before that He moved our mountains, parted our waters, caused the seas to still.
We know He will do it again.
C.S Lewis says in his book, A Grief Observed…
“The time when there is nothing at all in your soul except a cry for help may be just that time when God can’t give it: you are like the drowning man who can’t be helped because he clutches and grabs. Perhaps your own reiterated cries deafen you to the voice you hoped to hear.”
Choose to be still this week my friends. I promise you will not regret it. He will arrive.
