He says, "Be still, and know that I am God.”
Psalm 46:10a (NIrV)
I love to sleep with my teddy bear, Sparkle. I tell all my secrets to this special friend. Sparkle listens without interrupting. He smiles the whole time I am talking to him. This makes me think he enjoys my company. What a special friend he is. I never have to worry. He will never tell someone my secrets. Sometimes I like to put my ear to Sparkle’s mouth and pretend I am listening to his secrets, too. Sparkle is my special friend.
You and I have another special friend who wants to tell us his secrets. He wants to share his thoughts with us. God wants us to listen sometimes without interrupting. What pleasure it must give him when we stop and listen to him.
Too many times we spend time telling him all our problems, or asking him to do something for us. He wants us sometimes just to be still, and listen, and to know he is our God. He is our friend. He is our Savior. He is in control of our life. He will direct us. He will tell us what He wants us to know.
Dear Lord, today we ask you for nothing. We will not even share our problems with you today. We just want to listen for what you have to say . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
