Learn to Be BOTH Still and Active!

One of the great challenges of our day is that hardly any of us are very good at stilling ourselves before the Lord. The good news is that we can all learn to do so. 

There is, however, an additional problem that might surface as we learn to be still. As we behold God’s goodness, experience measures of healing in our souls, and get in touch with our true selves, we have the potential to get stuck. 

Sometimes, we can so enjoy our time with the Lord that we become passive in our faith.

Let's be attentive to our souls, and learn to attend to them.

Here are three tips I discuss in this short video:

Expand Your Capacity to Be With God

 

God wants to be with you in increasingly deep and meaningful ways.

You can Be With Him more tangibly and significantly.  It starts with you wanting to be with Him ... or at least wanting to want to be with Him.

If you look for the Lord (Psalm 105:4), you will find Him.  "You will find Him when you seek Him with all your heart." (Jeremiah 29:13).

A few tools or springboards to the process of Being With God are ...

* Scripture ... 2 Timothy 3:16

* Prayer ... beyond petitioning, beyond intercession, into communion

* Stillness and Silence ... simply being with Him without demand

* Waiting Upon the Lord ... deepening and growing in faith, as we hope in Him
