Find Yourself Some Silence

Thought For The Week 44

Girl engrossed on her mobile listening to music

Precious saints of earlier generations had a great deal to say about ‘stillness’.  They knew it as the absence of movement or the absence of sound, or both.  They felt they must be ‘still’ at least part of the day or that day would be wasted. Inward assurance arises out of stillness; we must be still to know! (Psalm 46: 10) Of course it’s possible to know Yahweh in the hubbub if that is where He has placed us, but I believe He is known best in the stillness. During my lifetime the silence has been eroded by a battery of sound; by a world demanding to be heard; by an inner need to ‘drown’ it out. Don’t allow yourself to be beguiled by noise - switch off the worship CD, the 'God Channel', YouTube - and find yourself some silence. Prioritise some still times, the benefits are enormous.

 

Temporarily cease from all output

   Of energy, effort and strength;

Linger a while before Yahweh,

   With Him only be thou content.

Be free from the noise and the hurry

   And turbulent things of this life,

Relax in the Presence of Yahweh

   Totally free from all strife.

 

Abstain from all kinds of movement,

   Before Him be still – very still,

Allow Him to penetrate fully

   The depths of your being at will.

The Kingdom of Heaven is in you,

   The Almighty Himself dwells there, too,

His Presence and peace, my beloved,

   Belong by your birthright, to you!

He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am [Elohim]'

Psalm 46:10 NIV

As disciples we have to follow Yahshua’s example and empty ourselves of any rights that we think we may have and take on the attitude of a servant.
