All about my love for the Lord

“Be still and know that I AM God.” Psalm 46:10

 

Be still. I am learning to delight in those words.

I am learning that meditating on the stillness of the Lord is the most productive place for me to be.

I am learning that in His presence alone I am renewed and filled with peace and joy.

I am learning that when I am still in Him, I am given opportunity to reflect and repent.

Reflection and repentance can be mightily avoided when I am busy. I am able to brush pass my sin. In my flurry of activity I am able to justify my fallen sin-nature. In my inability to be still I am quite capable of ignoring the very things that draw me away from the Lord.

In stillness I become aware of my greatest need…forgiveness.

We all need forgiveness.

I commit to stillness this Advent. I will take time to reflect on the past year. I will take time to repent…truly repent. And although He knows, great than I, my sins. He knows where I am broken and cracked and withered. He knows that I am weak in my desires and temptations. He knew these things long before I took my first breath. Knowing all this…He loves me greater than my sin. He fills my heart with a desire to be clean and whole in Him.

In stillness I will seek forgiveness. I abandon my old self to live as a new creation in Him. To live with hope and desire for a future in Christ.

“Be still and know that I am God.”

Be still beloved…do not walk another step in the sin that holds you back from walking wholly in Him. Do not allow sin to define you…be defined by the One who is in you…the One who is greater than the one who is in the world. Be still in Christ and be healed.
