Stillness before God

..Be still, and know(recognize and understand) that I am God, I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth!–Psalm 46:10

One of the most important things we can learn in our world today is how to be still.

I believe that one of the most significant reasons so many of us are burned-out and stressed-out is because we don’t know how to be still. By spending time getting to know Him we learn to hear His still, small voice so He can direct our paths.

We need to learn to be quiet on the inside and stay in that peaceful state so we are always ready to hear the Lord’s voice. Many people today run from one thing to the next. Because their minds don’t know hoe to be still, they don’t know how to be still in their hearts.

If we’ll just slow down, and quiet our minds enough to hear the promptings of the Holy Spirit, we can live in a place of peace, ready to respond obediently. It is east to see that leading a peaceful, happy life, free from exhaustion and burnout, is not all that complicated as long as we remain still before God.
