Be still before God

Our earthly foes come in all forms, all guided by the prince of the power of the air. They seek to destroy, but they have no power in our lives to fulfill their objectives when God is at the helm and steering the ship.

To be silent before God and to wait on Him… to hear his still small voice is to empty ourselves of worldly noise and distraction. To allow our Creator to take prominence in our hearts and minds, as we struggle to silence the worldly chatter, is a sure balm for whatever ails us.

In a world where many man-made remedies are so easy to obtain, the first thing to reach for is prayer and the healing arms of Jesus—our prescription for life. In the midst of a sin-filled world where evil doesn’t seem to quit, there’s no better joy than knowing the Lord is on the throne, and he will lend the wisdom, aid, and guidance.

Holding onto the rock of our salvation is the only fortress against the battles. When we cling to our Lord and Savior, there is nothing else to fear for we are in capable hands. What can mere man do to remove us from the safety of Jesus?  When the uphill roads of life are under foot and when we feel we’re losing our traction, keeping our faith strong in the Lord through meditation and prayer is our only defense. Our hope remains steadfast as we dwell in Him and his Word.

 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” ~ Isaiah 40:31
