The power of faith!
Recognize God’s power in times of trouble. Life is filled with trials and tribulations, at times you may feel like giving up, you may be looking for answers and praying harder than ever. But, the answers never seem to come, and the troubles keep getting piling up. Its time to take a deep breath, be still and take hid of these three tips I’ll be sharing with you.
Still: free from noise or turbulence; untroubled
When we are free from outside noise or turbulence, we are able to hear the still small voice of God’s Spirit as he comes to comfort and guide us through our trials. Some of the noise we experience that could be blocking our ability to feel God’s presence in our own worry. When we learn to change our thoughts from negative to positive, we are more able to feel God’s love because we are in harmony with him. The noise and turbulence are replaced by a sweet melody of peace.
Calm: a period or condition of freedom from storms; a state of tranquillity
To be calm does not mean that the storm is no longer all around you, it means that the storm is no longer within you. The storms may still rage, but you are free from the effects of them. They no longer trouble you because you know in whom you have trusted. You are in a place where you no longer fear.
Quiet: gentle, easy going, i.e. quiet nature
When we are gentle and easygoing, we are more able to hear God’s commands. He gently persuades us to love him and serve others. We are more able to ease our own troubles, and we will carry God’s spirit within us, which will aid us in easing the burdens of others.
“Be still and know that I am God,” is not just a saying, it is a state of being. It is the ability to know God well enough to trust in his abilities to rescue you. As we learn to be still and trust in God, we come to know and understand that we are God’s children. We are never alone, never unaided and never forgotten.
