God calls us to know Him and to make Him known. Knowing God’s love propels us to share His love with others.
“Be still and know (recognize, understand) that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth.” ~Psalm 46:10 AMP
Know God’s Stillness
As I prayed for my dear friend lying in the hospital bed in a coma-like state, I prayed for Him to have sweet fellowship with the Lover of our souls in that inner sanctuary that no man or illness can touch.
In His Presence there is a peace that passes understanding, there is a joy that knows no limits, and there is grace to endure any trial. ~Lisa Blair
A coma-like state implies physical stillness, yet our spirits can soar in the heights with God.
“Who shall ever separate us from Christ’s love? Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword?” ~Romans 8:35 AMPC
Know by Drawing Near
Matthew encourages us to serve the Living God by praying, giving and fasting in secret and not before men to be seen by them. I’m so thankful that when we draw near to God to know Him, He draws near to us to reveal Himself.
“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” ~James 4:8a NASB
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” ~Matthew 7:7-8 NASB
