BEING STILL IN GOD'S PRESENCE 2
Be still, and know that I am God . . . Psalm 46:10
In coming to God we should place ourselves in His presence with the confidence that He is the aggressor, not we. He has been waiting to manifest Himself to us till such time as our noise and activity have subsided enough for Him to make Himself heard and felt by us.
Then we should focus our soul’s powers of attention upon the Triune Godhead. Whether One Person or Another claims our present interest is not important. We can trust the Spirit to bring before our minds the Person that we at the moment need most to behold. One thing more. Do not try to imagine God, or you will have an imaginary God; and certainly do not, as some have done, “set a chair for Him.” God is Spirit. He dwells in your heart, not your house.
Brood on the Scriptures and let faith show you God as He is revealed there. Nothing else can equal this glorious sight.
Slow down! Be still! How good to be still. The quieter in heart we become the more we know that He is God and He is there.
Teach me to be still, Lord. To be still and know that You are God.
