Let all that I am wait quietly before God,
What am I today? Am I tired? Am I frustrated? Am I worn? Am I busy? What ever I am today let it wait before my God. I choose to make time to quiet myself even if I can’t silence the world around me. Yes it must wait. They must wait. As I go before my God.
for my hope is in him. He alone is my rock and my salvation,
Do I have my hope fully rooted in him or have relied on my strength to get through the day. Is He my foundation or have started standing on shaky assumptions and substances. Am I looking to Him to be my savior in every situation or have I donned my own cape to save myself?
my fortress where I will not be shaken.
Am I staying within His protective boundaries or am I frolicking through enemy territory?
My victory and honor come from God alone. He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me.
If there is to be any real victory it comes through Him alone no matter who he uses to bring it about. It is Him who deserves the honor. Am I running to the place of refuge or tirelessly fighting a battle I need not? He is my place of protection.
O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge.
When I can’t access other humans to share the harried details of the day, am I mindful that He is always there waiting and ready to listen? Am I holding in what needs to be pour out to Him?
This morning I took a page from my blogging friend Sharon’s book by taking a stroll through scripture. Sometimes our Bible reading can become another thing to check off our to-do list. But when we tackle it that way, we fail to savor it’s true essence. It’s not enough to read the Word but we must allow the Word to read us.
