OK, this week’s challenge is to be still and know that He is God (Psalm 46:10). If ever you need an excuse for a cuppa, here it is, God tells us to be still ourselves. How often do we go onto auto pilot when things happen around us? We can look like a pinball machine sometimes bouncing from one decision/thought to another with no real aim other than to bounce and to be bounced (sometimes by others).
Let us pray: Father God, 'Thank You' that you love us and that Your love is tangible. In our quite time this week Lord, feed us. Let us put aside our pinball machine ways of doing things and just be still in your presence not being or doing anything other than sitting with you. We love you God and we worship you, your name will ever be on our lips.
God wants us to use these words below and to ground ourselves in the truth.
11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
