- Psalm 46:10
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."
The best way to be attentive to the LORD – is to be still. I am to be still for at least another week. My own thoughts at this hour, however, are to plunge into an idea that I have had. I’ve thought it was a good one – with right motives – with a right heart – and yet I hear God saying, “Be still, Stephanie, sit down and listen, and LET ME ACT on your behalf.”
Look who gets fed or blessed or taught here in this passage:
- John 6:10-11
I wonder, on that day, did the disciples ever eat any of that food? Or were they so busy distributing [even doing good] and picking up crumbs that they might never have been fed by the Master?
Our first thought – or our first reaction to something – may not always be God’s intention or even His move. Being ‘still’ for a time - sitting down – can show us if it was or it was not.
So I am choosing to be still and listen attentively, and wait first!
LORD, I’m sitting at Your feet, waiting and listening to Your voice.
