Be still says the Lord for this is the only way that you will hear my voice. In the coming days of fear, anxiety and depression among the peoples of your town or city there will be believers who will be calm and composed. Why? Because God has been in touch with them and they at rest.
I believe that there will be many believers who will stumble and weave among the chaos of the later days as they will be drunk with fear. But those who have the Holy Spirit bubbling up within their hearts so as to hear the voice of Gods spirit will be calm and sober in mind.
Be still says the Lord. These words bring to mind the story of Jesus calming the wild wind tossed Sea of Galilee after the disciple had woken him Only Jesus can calm the raging seas within us that threaten to sink our dreams and hopes. The sad aspect of this is that many believers have moved so far away from hearing the voice of God in their lives that they do not think to call out to Jesus to save them. Today the ‘in thing’ is to go to a doctor and be filled with prescription mind altering drugs. Or to go to ‘therapy,’ without even giving the Son of God a second glance to assist.
Be still says the Lord for I wish that all my children could be enjoying my day of rest. Cease from your labours says the Lord and throw yourself upon my word for I have left the Comforter who is within you to open your eyes to the need of having a child like faith. Far too many of us rely on our own labours as we strive to be holy as God is holy; as we strive to live up the ideals we believe Christians should live by.
Be still says the Lord and wait for him to act. How many of us are guilty of not waiting for God to answer our prayer? How many of us rush in to do Gods work when a better option would be to wait for some direction from God himself.
Be still says the Lord and know that I am God for we have forgotten in our rushing here and there that the Lord is coming soon, not only to reign over the earth, but to bring judgement to you and I. For we all will have to give an account of ourselves before the judge of all the earth. Be still says the Lord and reflect on what you will have to answer to me for. If need be put wrongs to right now before we have to stand before the throne of God and the Lamb and be judged.
Be still says the Lord for I am roused up and I will bring testings and trails in these last days to test my children as a loving Father trains his children in the way they should go. Many of my followers will fall away from the various trials, but those that are of a pure heart will count it all joy to suffer for my name. God is preparing his bride for the marriage of the Lamb and his church must be pure and dressed in all its finery. Lets rid the church says the Lord of all pew warmers and those whose hearts are not for me and do not belong to me.
Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes .
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."
Be still before the LORD, all mankind, because he has roused himself from his holy dwelling."
He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
Mark 4 : 39
