PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father, help me to be still today, so that I may more clearly hear you. Amen.
WHY PRAY THIS?: The Bible says “God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God. Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth.” (Psalms 53:2; 46:10).
Sometimes ago, I had a decision to make. I wasn’t making enough as a Computer Guru to progress into the next desired level other than the level I had been in for years. I was unsure what to do, after I forgo hacking as hobby. I was considering taking several jobs of maintenance for institutions on part-time term. Some of them had not decided whether or not to hire me. But then, One thing I was certain about was that I didn’t want to be a poor Technologist. I was hoping a job would come up and I would not have to move on. Time was short and I was in a panic..skills freezing up on the way, thinking of the worst. But I thank God for this word from the 46th Psalm, “Be still, and know that I am God!” It was at that moment that I realized I was trusting people and what they said more than I was trusting God. I was acting as if God had been taken by surprise by my situation and might not know what to do about me, as much as my family, even after I took decision to apply for Entrepreneurial and Business Management at NOUN. Reading that verse of scripture, I realized how foolish I had been. I saw that it was time to calm down so I could hear God speak to me in my need, and HE (Jehovah-Rohi) did! Even today, in this new week, and for the rest of my life, I got to be calm so that I can hear HIM speak more and often to me, will you! Peace be unto You!
