Has It Been Too Long?

My child, it had been so long since you have come away to really rest in my arms and be renewed.

Is there a need? Do you see/sense emptiness?

Do you hear me not, though I am ever present? Listen.

Be still and know that I am God.
Be still and know the great I AM.
Come away my beloved and selah. (Pause and think calmly)


Is the Lord Jesus whispering to your heart? He only pursues you because he loves you so. He is not shaking a stick at you nor wanting to punish you. Punishing ourselves is something we do well enough on our own by not seeking Him, not taking time to “be still and know that He is God.” But there is hope, there is choice and there is JOY to be had in His presence even yet today!

Psalms 46:10 encourages us to be still and know that He is God. It goes on to say I (God) will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

There are places where this is still happening. Is your home one of those places? It can be, beginning today, right now with you!

In Exodus 15:26 the Bible says if you listen carefully to the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all is decrees, I (God) will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord who heals you.

What a wonderful promise we have just in that one verse. How can we listen carefully to God’s voice? Read His Word, pray, LISTEN in the quiet place, hear what he has to say from those in authority over you, those who “cover” you and listen to what he is laying on your heart lining it up with His Word.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, help me to learn (again) to be still and listen to You; all knowledge, wisdom of the ages, all love. I am sometimes empty and you are Fullness personified! AMEN
