“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10 (NIV)
You have my invitation. I am calling you to come to me. Rest in my presence. Leave the noise and busyness of your hectic life. Learn from me. Come to know me. Hear my thoughts. Listen to my voice. Let me teach you. Allow me to train you. I will mold and shape your life. I will lead you. I will guard and guide your life. My hand will be on you. You will come to know me. You will walk in my ways. You will accomplish my purposes and fulfill my plans for your life. You will be able to know and do my will.
There is no place I would rather be than in your presence. There is nothing I would do than to come to listen to you. I will leave the noise and busyness of my hectic life. That is no difficult sacrifice for me to make. Coming to know you is the desire of my heart. Nothing would thrill me more than to be able to know and do your will. Only you can make me able to accomplish your purposes and fulfill your plans. Only you can make me fruitful for your kingdom. Only you can help me to bring glory to your name. So, I will accept your invitation. I will come to sit before you. I will rest in your presence. I will be still before you so that I can come to know that you are God. You are my God. You are my King. You are my Savior and Lord. You are worthy of all my praise and honor and glory. You are worthy of all time. You are worthy of receiving all that I am, have and hope to be. Yes, I am. Ask me whatever you will. I will say yes to whatever you ask of me. Here I am now, sitting here in your presence. This is a very good place. It is quiet. It is still. It is calm. I am ready to listen. I am ready to receive all that you have for me. I am ready for you to mold and shape my life. I am ready for you to strengthen and sustain and encourage me through all the ups and downs and twists and turns of life. I will hold on to you as I walk with you through life. Guard and guide my life as I follow you. Direct me to where you want me to go. Give me what you want me to do. Thank you for calling me to come to you. Thank you for your invitation to come to know you.
Heavenly Father, there is no place I would rather be than in your presence. There is nothing I would rather do than to be still before you. Help me to come to know you as I sit still before you. Strengthen, sustain and encourage me as I rest in your presence. Amen
