Did you know that being still is a weapon in the Kingdom of God? You have permission to be still. In all of your needs, in all of your desires, in everything that’s going on in your schedule, you can be still.
I actually just came from a prayer meeting and we just laid on the floor and soaked in the presence of God, because soaking and just being still means that we’re surrendered and we trust that our Father is going to take care of us. Psalm 37:7 says, “Be still before Him and wait patiently for Him. Fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices.” And Psalm 131 says, “I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me, but I have calmed and quieted my soul like a weaned child with its mother. Like a weaned child is my soul within me.”
So just remembering that it is well. It’s well with your soul. It’s well, because Jesus has paid the price and He’s already won the victory. So sometimes we just need to sit back and wait and be silent, and let our spirit commune with God by being still. It is hard to be still in this culture. We are so prone to go, go, go and finish all these tasks and then when we get into our beds at night, we’re exhausted.
But God is calling us, sometimes there’s times where we just need to be still. Sometimes we need to war and fight, and pray that way. So just lean on Him and trust that He’s going to look after the things that you are thinking about. He’s going to look after your family. He’s going to look after your finances. He’s going to look after all of these things because going, going, going can actually cause us to be anxious. It can cause us to get sick. But God knows and He has the answer already.
So, God, I just thank you that we can be still in your presence. God let your presence flood everyone who’s watching right now. God, I pray that your presence would be the thing that we go after, Lord, that we would just rest in your peace. Jesus, one of your names is the Prince of Peace and Holy Spirit, you are our Helper and our Comforter. And so I just pray for your presence to come over everyone who’s watching right now, and that there would be stillness over their souls. In Jesus’ name, amen.
