Psalm 46 verse 10
“Be still and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth”
Have you ever sat still for a while and felt the presence of God. Be still and know. That is what He wants us to do. As we sit with the The Holy Spirit how lovely is the presence of God.
From the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by: J.M.R. Larman.
I did hear quite a long time ago that someone asked how could they feel the presence and peace of the Lord as it had never seemed to work even though they sat and waited.
Well….the advise they were given didn’t seem to be very good but they thought they would give it a go.
So that evening they turned off the television, the radio etc., and sat quietly in the lounge room. They were told to just sit and look around the room, thank the Lord for just being able to sit and look around at what ever was in the room. Thank Him in their heart for the day, for anyone they had met or for where they had been if they had been out of the house. To look at their special things in the room remembering if necessary any one who had given them anything that was there. Just to sit and thank The Lord for the day and for just being able to sit and pray or not to pray but just to sit and be quiet. No need to get up and rush around, also no need to ask or feel anything -just to sit.
After a while, the person felt such peace sitting alone in the room, something they had never really felt before.
It was a revelation to know that they had not even had to strive and ask for the Presence of The Lord to be with them but in the quietness of their heart they just felt The Peace of The Lord. It was so lovely they just wanted to stay in what they then knew was the Presence of The Lord.
The Peace of The Lord is beyond our understanding.
It is lovely to Share the Peace of The Lord – you are able to do that by just giving someone a HUG.
Have a lovely day.
God Bless You.
