It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear. Isaiah 65:24
What a beautiful and precious promise, to know that He is always near, ever listening, always speaking. I think sometimes we don’t hear because we won’t be still long enough to listen, not just listen to the beginning instructions, but the complete plan.
We get a word from the Lord and before He’s finished, our minds have jumped ahead like a kangaroo. “I can do this.” And away we go! But what God needs us to do is quite simple, rest.
Rest in His arms. Rest in His promises. Rest in knowing that we don’t have to run out and do everything ourselves. He has this! He gives us the promise but it doesn’t mean we don’t go through a process to possess it. Yes there are things we need to do, but when we wait, we receive the assurance that regardless of what we see in the natural, God is still working in the supernatural.
Whatever I face today, He’s already made provision for it. Whatever problem, whatever wall I run into, whatever impossibility, whatever evil report, whatever I’m unsure of, HE KNOWS. I must rest in Him. Once I know, nothing can talk me out of it. NOTHING! Not what I see, hear, touch, taste or smell.
As I sensed the presence of the Lord surround me during my devotions, I stopped and closed my eyes. I felt my head resting on His lap as He stroked my hair and whispered, “I love you!” Sometimes we don’t need a big Word for our big problem. Sometimes a touch and a whisper is enough.
I love your presence, Lord. You are as close as the mention of Your name, Jesus. You are welcome in my day today. I need the peace and wisdom You bring with You as I rest in You.
Resting in You,
