HEARD:  Fellowship.  Dig deeper. 

[Oh Lord, I have spent 32 years asking, seeking, knocking and sometimes it feels like I am getting nowhere in my deepest needs for fellowship and intimacy with You.  How can I dig deeper than what I am already doing?]

HEARD:  Spend time with Me.  Thats all.
QUICKENED MEMORY:  The phrase Be still and know that I AM God immediate came into my memory.


Psalm 46:10-11 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. 11 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

HEARD:  A quality of life in being still, I assure you. 

God whispers to teach us how to hear. Wisdom is in the still small voice of God. He doesn't shout at you, He whispers. He doesn't speak to your head. Why would He speak to the hardest part of you?! He has never spoken to your head. He will never speak to your head! He is in your heart, so He speaks in you, not to you.

{End quote}


COMMENTS FROM SANDY:  I remember when my little autistic niece was a baby she had a habit of blurting out a scream just to hear her voice.  Although it was a normal autistic habit, I could clearly tell she liked hearing herself do this.  This made it difficult to take her out in public.  One time I was babysitting her so her Mom could attend a recital of one of her other kids.  I was in public with her and drawing uncomfortable attention so I began to consistently put my index finger to my mouth and whispered something to her each time she screamed.  I did not let even let one time pass without whispering back to her in this manner.  I knew that my consistently was important.  I discovered that she wanted to hear what I was saying and so this caused her to stop screaming!  I realized that she had the choice to scream or listen and she was using that choice to hear me.  I discovered this same method when my grandkids were crying too long.


As Graham said in the above quote, God is very wise when He speak to us through His still small voice.  Most of the time we have to be STILL in order to hear Him.


Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God.



Strong's Hebrew Dictionary
רָפָה raphah (rphh)
Search for H7503 in KJVSL; in KJV.

רָפָה rphh, raw-faw'

a primitive root; to slacken (in many applications, literal or figurative):abate, cease, consume, draw (toward evening), fail, (be) faint, be (wax) feeble, forsake, idle, leave, let alone (go, down), (be) slack, stay, be still, be slothful, (be) weak(-en). See H7495.


Wow those words describing stillness really are profound. I slacken my pace, I cease my schedule and let go of what is consuming my attention.  I empty myself of my own strength and choose to forsake my agenda, leaving it all behind even if but for a moment in time just to be with Him.

HEARD:  Breaking bread. Clarity.  Confusion lifted.  Melted away like a cloud.  Its all about love.  True love.  Melt, I melt your heart and turn it toward Me.  I love you daughter.  Be not afraid.  Yes its Me.  Softly I speak.  A gentle whisper.  

QUICKENED THOUGHT:  Simply offer our pieces of broken bread to Him, and He will bless it and multiply it.  We use what we have been given, and He will expand it into a meal that is fully satisfying.


I saw lots of activity in a classroom.  Children, you have got to learn how to sit down.  Be still.  Safe canopy.  Lid on.
