Be Still Before Him

“Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him.”
Psalms 37:7 (NIV)

How much time do you spend meditating in the presence of God? That is to stop everything and spend quiet time before Him. This is more difficult than it seems. It does not matter if you have read the Bible for four weeks or four decades, you may know all about God and still not spend much time experiencing Him. Your knowledge may be in your head never making it into your heart. You will never truly know what it means to love God without spending meditative time in His presence. That is like saying you love your spouse and yet you never spend any time together. God is interested in us knowing Him through Scriptures, but He also desires a relationship that only comes through quiet “waiting” in His presence. Today, determine to know Him better. Choose some time where you can spend twenty minutes of solitude with Him. Don’t let another day, week, month or year go by and not treasure God in your heart through time spent still before Him.
Father, I know that one of the purposes You have for me in this life is to know You. Help me carve out the time it takes to be “still” before You. Help me learn to embrace Your presence and enjoy union with You in quiet times together. I ask this in Jesus’ Name.

I spend quiet time with God
Practicing the presence of God is crucial to knowing Him. Today just silently sit before Him. You may choose an attribute of God and let it be your focus for your meditation. Today, let us choose love. Quietly whisper, “God is love.” After saying the phrase let your mind think about it. Visualize a time you have experienced His love. Think of His love for you right now. When this dissipates repeat the phrase again, “God is love.” Let it carry you again into meditation. This time thank God for His love and spend time visualizing Him loving you.
