Psalm 46:10 says; “Be still and know that I am God.”

Isaiah 30:15 “In quietness and trust is your strength.”

Lamentations 3:28-29 “Let him sit alone in silence, for the Lord has laid it on him. Let him bury his face in the dust – there may yet be hope.”

In the midst of my silence, I find myself lost in the noise of the world that surrounds me. Even so, I can find those quiet moments when God’s voice is heard and speaks to my heart. 

We can each become still enough so that we are ready to receive and catch a glimpse of His garment as He brushes by and extends a hand to us. Or be held in a short walk of redemption.

In that brief walk, He brings us peace like a river. He brings a breathe of fresh wind, a promise that all will be well with our soul, if we hang on to the assurance of His love and steadfastness of His word. 

When we are unsure on what lies ahead, God is the clarity we need in order to make wise decisions. God will bring us confirmation in His righteousness and a sense of calm in our understanding.

God is good to give us what we need, and when we step back to take into account what He’s done. We can only be amazed at the precision and accurateness of His gifts and give Him thanks and praise for the lavish ways in which He expresses His love. 

Set Him apart and be astonished by what only He can do.
