Silence

12 08 2015

“But the Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth keep silence before him.” – Habakkuk 2:20

It is a busy day. Each of us is blessed with jobs to do, family to care for, laundry to fold, groceries to buy, houses to clean, and dinners to fix. There are people to be taking care of, deadlines to be met, service to be poured out, and agenda items to be completed. It is easy to let the pace of the world become the pace of our hearts. Sometimes it seems impossible to stop and let the presence of God soak into the cracks in our souls.

In the midst of our struggles and schedules, God’s Word reminds us to be silent before the majesty of the Lord. He calls for our hearts and prepares a way for us to walk close to His side. Today is a day for measuring beauty, discovering purpose, and resting in peace. God has a plan for each of our lives. It is a plan that is designed to ignite our faith, strengthen our dependence, and transform us into the image of Jesus. Sometimes His plan has us going to unknown places and fighting big battles. Sometimes He asks us to be still in the small moments of our days and wait for Him. Whatever He has planned for you today, rest assured in His rich goodness, unending faithfulness, and matchless love. He has big dreams for you and they all revolve around you looking like Jesus.

My Jesus Resolution today is to take a moment to be silent and enter into His presence. I am going to let worship fill my heart. I want to let the noise of the world fade away as I gaze upon His glory. For just for a moment, I am going to let the splendor of His majesty take my breath away. It will infuse all the earthly things that hold my attention with the wonder of heaven.
