Be Still

Hello Sis,

I trust that your week has been off to a great start.

Waiting before God is not an invitation to meditate on a deeper revelation of you but to experience a deeper revelation of Him.
Often times what We need to hear from God is to be still and quiet.

Remaining still often requires more strength than striking. Stilled and silent is the best posture we can assume when we need to hear from God. No wonder David in Psalm 62:5 said "Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him."

Furthermore, there are times when waiting quietly before God or being still becomes the best weapon we can adopt for God to be revealed to others. (Exodus 14:13-14)

Only the spirit minded can be still before God because being still requires being dead to flesh, it's desires and control.

I had an experience recently, and it's about how mind-full God is about us and it always require us being still. The encounter was so real, I was having a roller coaster of a day and suddenly began to feel like I was inadequate, inadequate as a wife, mother, employee...while I was feeling this way the Holy spirit nudged me to read my devotional for the day and I felt I should too even though it was not the most convenient thing to do at the time. I immediately remembered that now was the time to put to use the many lines I had nodded to in my current read "Girls with Sword" by Lisa Bevere and as I opened my devotional the topic read "I am such a failure". I exclaimed with a big smile on "God is so mind-full of me", how apt and on time was the message?! But I wouldn't have known this if I were not still in His presence.

Sis, there's nothing you are going through now that Will ever make God say "oh, I didn't see that coming to her "....

He knows the end from the beginning so, God made adequate provision for us all in His word and through the Holy Spirit.

Instead of running away from the Word when confused or heavy laden, run to the Word. Therein lies your assurance and comfort.
A car with little or no fuel does not run away from the filling station, it goes to the station for a refuel.
Go to the Word and stay there!

Loads of love,

Your Sis

    I recently had an experience like this. In prayers, around that time, I was led over & again to thank Him for His faithful love, for being so mindful of me. You don't know how much this resonates with me. He's a faithful father. Our faithful father. He knows all and cares for us too deeply to leave us, always having a word for every season. Ever present!
