Slow Down

Description

We slow down for people all the time; why not slow all the way down for God and learn to be completely still before Him?

Psalms 37: 7

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;

When was the last time you were still before God?  Really still? Not thinking about your grocery list, your errands to run, the ball practice to get to, the meal to cook, the cleaning that keeps calling your name- just still.  It’s hard to be still. It takes discipline and effort to clear your mind. We must train ourselves to be still, to sit quietly before God and just “be” with Him. By doing this one small act of discipline, you are showing God that He is worth slowing down for. 

Think about it: we slow down for people all the time— school zones, cross walks, railroad tracks, shopping centers, neighborhoods, etc. Why not slow all the way down for God and learn to be completely still before Him? It will be worth the effort. To learn to be patient and wait on God is a huge benefit in our lives. It takes away all the stress we have, because we learn to leave the stress in His hands— His very capable, loving hands.

Prayer

Father, I want to be still before You and to be patient with You. I need You to teach me how to carry out this discipline- it does not come natural to me.  Father, show me how to clear my mind and be still. I want that more than anything. Help me get out of the go-go-go mentality and rest in Your time. I want to be completely and utterly dependent on You for all things and I know I will, when I am still before You.
