My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you,
turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding—
indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding,
and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure,
then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.
I have had a long period of being still and waiting. I did it as self preservation to some point but I also did it because I came to a place of understanding that “I didn’t have all the answers and I knew someone that did”. That someone was God. To be still and wait was very difficult for a codependent/controller. But life had become out of control and I needed some help. In that process of stepping away from me and leaning more on God, I allow Him to work. It allowed the Holy Spirit to take hold of me and enabled me to hear Him clearer.
Since that one long experience I have had many shorter runs in different situations and I can tell you from experience, it’s always worth the stillness and waiting. God always comes through but only because I’m willing to step away from me and listen to Him intently.
I encourage you today to be Still, Wait and Listen. Take away all your preconceived notions and allow Him to change your heart, mind and soul forever.
Thank You Lord for working in me. It has changed my world for the better. And for always. Amen!
