“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
We do have a lot of things going down in the world hurricanes, earthquakes, rumors of wars and civil unrest! You can’t turn on the news and not see some disaster going on maybe even in your own life! Jesus said in the world you will have tribulation, but in Him peace!
“Then He said, Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD. And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; 12. and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire and after the fire a still small voice.”
1 Kings 19:11-12
In the HEBREW a still small voice or whisper is not there! It reads God was in the SILENCE, absolute quiet! While the world may seem to be loudly falling apart around us! Often times what we need to do is be quiet and just listen for the LORD, take a deep breath and wait!
“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
Be still in Hebrew really means “drop it let it go” today we can get caught up in all kinds of trials and tribulations, that only cause us to have anxiety! Being loud and making all kinds of noise! The LORD wants us to have peace and peace (Shalom) can only be found in Him! Have a blessed day listening and waiting for the LORD! Shabbat Shalom!
