"Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth."
(Psalms 46:10 KJV)
Our Awesome God takes His time to get things done, it maybe a couple of centuries or it maybe now but it will be done right. Our world today is one of getting everything done yesterday, of pushing and pulling. It is a world that is never still, we are always busy. But, at first, when we are younger we think it won't be too difficult to have a moment of quiet. No sooner do we try than we find complete pandemonium breaking loose. We suddenly hear many voices without and within ourselves telling us to hurry, until we can hear nothing but those demanding sounds. Some are our words, some are our questions. But some are the world we know and some are Satan's diversions.
When or if this happens to you, you need to get your Holy Bible out and go to a quiet place to read and pray to Our Awesome God until the voices diminish or go away. Then pray until the voices are completely gone and God says, "Be still". As you listen and slowly obey, you may hear a "gentle whisper" (1 Kings 19:12) in the depths of your being that is tender, powerful and comforting. Just listen for now, you have the Voice of wisdom, power and prayer -- God. You have our God to listen to and relax with. He controls it all and you can just let Him have it all to do right. The world is really His!
With experience, you will no longer have to work so hard to get rid of the voices of the world and even yourself but will yearn to just hear that "gentle whisper" of Our Awesome God. God’s Voice will become your priority!
This is the way we drink in and refresh ourselves with the Spirit of our risen Lord and Savior. Then we are enabled to face our problems and responsibilities knowing Our Awesome God is but a prayer away. Are you being refreshed? Are you taking time out to just pray and know God? Are you taking time to pray and listen? God has the right answers.
LWBC is a loving church who tries to live by Biblical principles while encouraging all its members. Join us for church in the Sanctuary this coming Sunday at 10:30 AM. We also have Bible Study on Sunday at 9:30 AM and Sunday evening at 6:00 PM with a children's program called AWANA that goes to 7:30 PM. On Wednesdays, we meet at 7:00 PM for Prayer Requests and Bible Study. Our programs are varied but we teach and preach from Our Awesome God's Holy Bible that Jesus Christ died for you, taking your sins upon Himself and arose the third day to sit by God, interceding for you when you sin. We love visitors!
