Be Still - Man in a wheat field reading his Bible.

Be Still

As I’ve written in previous posts, truth is true no matter where you find it. And, by having the Holy Spirit within us, there is a resonance that we, as Christians, feel in our souls when we come across a truth. I am sure you have felt that way. 

Jesus, the Son of God, said that we receive the Holy Spirit to lead us into all truth (John 16:13). So just as a metal detector makes an audible sound when it gets close to metal, the Holy Spirit alerts us when we come close to something true.

However, if I try to use a metal detector without headphones while standing close to a busy street, I may not hear the detector’s alert. The same goes for us becoming aware of the Holy Spirit’s signals. If we have a cluttered mind; if we have a troubled heart; if we have a distracted life, then we very well may miss out on truths God wanted us to know.

I know what I’m writing is correct because I allowed a troubled heart to distract me just this week. I am without an excuse. I let my distraction cause me to miss an opportunity. I write this to remind you, so you don’t let yourself miss appointments that God has scheduled for you.

Psalms 46:10 reminds us to “Be still.” God isn’t our mother telling us to “sit still.”; God said to be still. Here’s the text:
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.” 
Psalms 46:10 (ESV)
