BE STILL

Be Still And Know
That I Am God

=========================================================================

ACTS 29 TODAY

COMING TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH

=========================================================================

As I was fellow shipping with the HOLY SPIRIT today I just knew I had to say this about the times we are living in, and this is a very important subject for these days.

It is a very hectic, busy, and crazy world we live in at this time, people are running to and fro thru out the earth….busy…busy....busy.

In the midst of all of this noise and commotion the word of GOD says to SEEK YOU FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND ALL THESE THINGS WILL BE ADDED UNTO YOU.

The things that will be added were the things that the gentiles seek after, like what are we going to eat, and what are we going to wear, and the basic needs of life.

I am not sure we understand what it means to SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

Could it mean before I veg out on my favorite computer game (that could take up hours) or the TV time (that takes up hours) or the multitude of other time stealing distractions that we are surrounded with everyday.

Imagine if the prosperity seeking people spent as much time seekingĀ  first the kingdom of God, how all of what they are working so hard to get would be added to them automatically.

The word also says to BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD.

If there was ever a time when the body of Christ needs to know GOD IS GOD….ITS NOW. AND TO SPEND SOME TIME BEING STILL.

One of the most powerful encounters I have ever had with GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT was after a soccer game that my young son was playing in, at the time I was separated from my first wife and my children were still living with her.

The game was on a sunny Saturday late afternoon and when the game was over and everyone had left I was all alone, so I called a few close friends and none of them where home.

As I was wondering what I was going to do… the HOLY SPIRIT SAID, WILL YOU SPEND SOME TIME WITH ME, and to be honest at that time in my Spiritual life I was not sure just how to do that. ( I was about 14 years old in the Lord, SAD HUH)) I said well sure I can spend some time with you, and then I thought, ah…so….maybe just go have coffee, yea you probably don’t drink coffee, right.

I was staying at my parents house at that time and they were gone on a trip somewhere so I just went there and went up into my room I grew up in when I was younger. I was feeling so alone and sad and I just laid down on my bed, it was around 5 in the afternoon.

I just began to pour out my heart to the Holy Spirit and tell Him everything that was in my deepest being, things I could have never HAVE told anyone else, as I went on about everything I began to weep uncontrollably, it was like the dam broke and it all came gushing out, all the hurt, pain, and rejection, the failures, broken dreams, and short comings.

Then in the STILLNESS.….THE HOLY SPIRIT….BEGAN TO MINISTER TO ME, I FELT LIKE I WAS WRAPPED IN A WARM BLANKET, HE BEGAN TO ASSURE ME OF HIS LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE FOR ME, AND HOW EVERYTHING WAS GOING TO BE OK, HE HAD NOT REJECTED ME, HAD NOT CAUSED ANY PAIN FOR ME, AND WAS MY LIFELONG FRIEND THAT I COULD FELLOWSHIP WITH ANY TIME 24/7.

HE SPOKE THINGS TO ME I CAN NOT EVEN BEGIN TO PUT INTO THIS LANGUAGE, HEART THINGS THAT ONLY THE SPIRIT UNDERSTANDS, HEALING THINGS, UP LIFTING THINGS, THINGS THAT NO HUMAN FRIEND COULD EVER SAY.

THIS WENT ON FOR HOURS AND HOURS, I HAD NO IDEA OF TIME, BECAUSE FOR ME I WAS IN THE PRESENCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THERE WAS NO TIME, I WAS IN THE PRESENCE OF THE ETERNAL, THE EVER LASTING, WITHOUT BEGINNING AND WITHOUT ENDING, ABSOLUTELY LOST IN HIS PRESENCE, AND NOT EVER WANTING TO COME OUT OF THAT PRESENCE.

When I finally became aware of time again it was very dark outside and it was around 11 O clock it had been about 6 hours, I was exhausted, but I felt like a new, revived, and refreshed person. OMW how amazing was that time with the HOLY SPIRIT, well that ENCOUNTER led me into a personal relationship with the HOLY SPIRIT that has lasted all these years and still this day.

A Chinese believer who had spent 20 years of hard labor for being a believer in China said, DON’T FEEL SORRY FOR ME BECAUSE I SPENT 20 YEARS IN PRISON FOR MY FAITH….FEEL SORRY FOR THE PERSON WHO HAS NEVER EXPERIENCED THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
