Quiet.


Sometimes the Lord just tells me to be quiet.  Rest my soul. But the strange thing about being quiet, and I mean the literal act of being quiet, not speaking but meditating on the state of your soul before the Lord God Almighty.

This place of quietness of speech, results in a multitude of thoughts considered without interruption.   It is a place where your most inner thoughts get presented to the Lord, worshiping at His throne.  Face in the dirt.

But God also strengthens our spirit and body to lift up hands and praise His holiness.  Because we have redemption through the blood of Christ and we are not condemned, where we can come boldly before the throne by His grace.

And the Kingdom of God is within your soul if the Holy Spirit lives there.  If Jesus Christ is the Lord of your life than you are in the process of sanctification by the Lord, where he deals with His children as a good father.  He chastises them and purifies them with trials which are for purposes beyond our understanding in God's Wisdom.

But He heals and strengthens our souls. And He is coming again as a fierce conqueror who will rule the nations with a rod of iron, and Christ will stand as the temple of God in the Holy City "Jerusalem", which is the bride of Christ, adorned with the pure white garments which is the righteousness of the saints.

All nations will flow unto Him, the creator of heaven and earth, and we, believers will rule and reign with Christ 1000 years.  For in this process of His coming, we will all be changed.  Our earthly bodies taking on heavenly form, we replace mortality with immortality and we will stand and serve in the presence of God.

This is where my soul will rest. In the presence of the Lord.  In the quiet place where he speaks volumes of thoughts towards me, so many that I can not count.  But the overall peace that results from meditating on the ways of God in our lives and our ways in His.  What a generous God we serve!  Who holds us as NOT GUILTY.  We are considered righteous in His sight because of the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.

We are rich.

Ask Jesus to be the Lord of your life.  Repent...turn back to Christ.  He is waiting and His reward is great.

  • A Worthy Offering – Strength For The Journey
    I was delighted when a mutual friend gave my neighbor a Bible. But my neighbor told me she stopped reading it because she couldn’t understand why God would be so unfair as to reject Cain’s offering. “After all,” she said, “as a farmer, he simply brought to God what he...
  • Down The Up Staircase | Our Daily Bread
    The video starts with a puppy at the top of the stairs afraid to go down. Despite much encouragement from people cheering at the bottom, Daisy can’t figure it out. She wants so badly to join them, but fear keeps her pacing the landing. Then a bigger dog comes to...
  • Fearful Fish | Our Daily Bread
    Managing a saltwater aquarium, I discovered, is no easy task. I had to run a portable chemical laboratory to monitor nitrate levels and ammonia content. I pumped in vitamins and antibiotics and sulfa drugs and enzymes. I filtered the water through glass fibers and charcoal.
  • Heartbleed and Identity Theft
    Someone left the backdoor open. Until recently no one realized the problem. Computer hackers could come and go without being noticed. While the technical side of the internet and computing world may elude us, the idea of an unlocked door to our personal information probably isn’t too hard to understand....
  • In Second Peter chapter one, discover the biblical prescription for a fruitful faith
    It would be a terrible waste to accept God’s grace, yet live a barren life. So how can a Christian see more of Jesus active in their life?
  • roots that drink from heaven
    A man knocked on my office door and asked me if I would officiate his marriage. I asked him to sit down so we could chat about his plans, timing, and spiritual life. “Oh, I’m not sure you understand,” he said, “I’d like you to marry me today, like in...
  • Nunca nos abandona
    Cuando era niño, uno de mis entretenimientos favoritos era jugar en el sube y baja de un parque cercano. Los chicos se sentaban en ambos extremos del tablón y se balanceaban hacia arriba y abajo. A veces, el que estaba abajo se mantenía allí y dejaba a su compañero de...
  • JAMAIS ABANDONNÉ
    Lorsque j’étais enfant, j’avais parmi mes passe-temps préférés celui de m’amuser sur la bascule d’un parc situé à proximité de chez moi. Un enfant s’assoyait à chaque extrémité de la planche et les deux se faisaient rebondir à tour de rôle. Il arrivait que celui qui était au sol y...
  • The Warning Against Desiring Spiritual Success | My Utmost For His Highest
    Worldliness is not the trap that most endangers us as Christian workers; nor is it sin. The trap we fall into is extravagantly desiring spiritual success; that is, success measured by, and patterned after, the form set by this religious age in which we now live. Never seek after anything...

    If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. —Genesis 4:7
