Be still and know that I am God…. Ps 46:10 At the moment when all our praise, worship or prayers fall into silence then God speaks. This is so often the moment when we feel we are done and move on. But if we linger in the presence of Jesus He will begin to speak and sing over us!! Our minds are so easily busy and filled with thoughts and plans and the pressure to live our lives like a race. Jesus is still resting by the well waiting for us to come. The moment of silence is not a silence at all; but His chance to speak into our hearts.
The words that He speaks to us will last forever. How precious are those moments to Him!
God called to him out of the bush, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then he said, “Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground. Ex 3:5
Before God was ready to speak, Moses needed to take off his sandals. We are only ready to hear God when we come to Him in complete humility and vulnerability. The place where God wants to show himself to us is the most ordinary of places on earth, but because He is there it becomes Holy. Worship is not just our singing or our music. Worship is a place where God speaks. How long has it been since He spoke clearly like a bell ringing in your heart?
