What does it mean to be still?
It means to take time to be still before the Lord. It means taking time out of your busy life to be still before the Lord. No social media, laptop, phone, music. Be still and quiet before the Lord.
How can we apply this to our lives?
We can apply this to our quiet time and prayer time by simply doing it! I feel that much to often we read our devotions, pray and your done. You move on into your busy life without taking time be still. We rush and rush through our days. We cannot stand to live without media being a constant in our lives. We need to learn to shut it out, turn it off and focus.
How can this effect you personally?
By choosing to be still, you can amp up your prayer life and relationship with God. Being still and allowing that still small voice to speak to you can make a world of difference. If you are praying and even reading, but never just letting the Holy Spirit speak into your life, you won’t grow as profoundly.
Bible verses to go along with these concepts?
Psalm 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
Psalm 37:7, “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!”
Philippians 4:6-7, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
By being still and praying, the peace of God will give you peace that surpasses all understanding. He will give you a peace that washes away all anxiety and depression. This peace is so real.
So I encourage you, be still before the Lord. Make this a part of your daily routine. Don’t stay where you are comfortable.
Love you all! Have a beautiful day ❤
