How do you respond in times of struggle and stress? Do you turn to YAHWEH in moments of tension and fear? Are you facing such times in 2023? Do you trust the LORD or do you complain to Him and resent Him because you feel He fails you and believe He has deserted you? Is YAHWEH truly your Shepherd or do you feel you have to take care of yourself? Perhaps you are like Moses having run for your life and have no way out or maybe like Israel caught up in slavery in some unescapable control. You may even think He has failed you and you are on your own. Yet this could be the time when you discover the amazing sovereign LORD is for you because He has come to deliver you if only you will trust Him!
Turn now and seek Him to discover if He has come to set you free and give you a new life.
Stop! Stop complaining. Stop crying out to those around you. Stop griping to God. Be silent. Be still. Realize that you are approaching the Holy God, the sinless LORD, the pure Sovereign Spirit, the Son of God who took up the cross for you. It is time to be still and listen through His word. Do not even confess. Just be silent and still and listen for what He has to say when He speaks. It is enough that He will speak to you. Who are you that He would say a word to you? Why does the Creator of all that is bother with us? Yet He does if only you will be still and listen. Could there be a burning bush in your life? Some way YAHWEH is striving to get your attention? Is there anything you have missed? Look and see.
Think about that. Be still. Listen. There might be.
That’s all. Be still. Listen.
