Cultivating a quiet life positions our hearts to hear from the Lord. Consider Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I AM God.”
- Be still and know I AM.
- Be still and know.
- Be still.
Are you toiling, frustrated, about to give up? This might be the missing ingredient to your life in Christ; learn to be still, draw near to God, and wait.
This word “still” in the Hebrew means to cease, wait, draw. It comes from a root word “rapha” meaning to cure, to heal, to make whole. The word “know” means among other things to acknowledge, acquaint, advise, answer, teach, understand.
When we are still with God, contemplating Him, His Word, His love, His peace, we come into a communion with Him where we are healed, made whole, given answers, taught of the Lord. It is needful to stop and take time to be quiet and listen.
Think of the life in God that would flow from that place in our hearts if we just took the time to wait, be still, be quiet, and listen. His peace would abound and no trial or adversity would be able to shake us from our place in Him. Be determined to enter into this place where all the good of God abounds. When you do, you will know I AM.
