BEFORE THE LORD
[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?]

MEMORY: The phrase
“Be still and know that I AM God” immediate came into my
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.

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.
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
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.
WORD STUDY: STILL -

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).
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
it all behind even if but for a moment in time just
to be with Him.
bread. Clarity. Confusion lifted. Melted away like a
cloud. It’s all about love. True love. Melt, I melt your
heart and turn it toward Me. I love you daughter. Be not
afraid. Yes it’s 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.
