search your hearts and be silent….(Psalm 4:4).
Sometimes God wants to fill the silence of our hearts with His love. I am experiencing that now as I quiet my heart before Him. I sense His peace even in the midst of circumstances that I do not understand.
Loss, grief, abandonment, betrayal, neglect, abuse, we have all experienced one, a few or all of these. It’s in those moments, in the midst of our pain that God wants to fill the silence of our hearts with His love.
Also, in these moments my misunderstanding of who God wants to fill the silence with anger, doubt, fear, and despair. Yet, I know that my Redeemer lives and I will stand with Him on the earth. Truly, no weapon can be formed against me. No plan of the enemy shall prosper in my life as I place myself in the loving hands of a mighty God.
Through this season of crushing God has been teaching me what it truly means to care for people. He is teaching me that not only do I need to be silent before Him, but before others as well. Sometimes, the only thing a person needs is the quietness of God’s presence lived out through His people. So that God can fill the silence, speaking into the heart and mind of that person.
Lord, today I choose to be silent, for I know that your plans for my life are good. I have nothing to fear. I believe only in the redemption of my life. I believe that whatever the enemy has set up for my destruction will be used for my ultimate good. Lord, I trust and believe you, because you are a mighty, powerful, loving God. In Jesus name, Amen.
