The scripture for today is Psalm 46:10
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
God is with us in this turbulent world. He is with us because he created us to be with him. He desires that we establish a relationship with him and follow his guidance. We must make the decision to be with him and in order to grow in him we must listen to him.
How do we listen to him when the noise around us is deafening and unrelenting? The way to proceed is to commit today to expanding our prayer life. Take a short period of time after your daily prayer to go silent and wait for God. Even a minute to stat with is enough if you are relaxed and desire to hear or feel his wisdom.
As I studied verse 10 above it became clear to me that only by being quiet and listening to God can we be fulfilled. God’s world will be recognized in the end here on earth and I want to recognize that reality by listening today for his guidance.
I invite you to start your silence and reflection with me today.
Let us pray: Lord help us to slow down and wait for your wisdom today and forever more. Amen
