Alone with God

The Place of Help, by Oswald Chambers
“To be silent unto God does not mean drifting into mere feeling or sinking into reverse, but deliberately getting into the center of things and focusing on God.”

Getting alone with God. How can something so simple be so difficult? As a young college student, I attended a prayer weekend with my church. The only rule for the weekend, speak to no other people except at meals. All conversations were to be with God, and him alone.  The first thing we often discover in silence is our restlessness, our driven-ness and compulsiveness, our urge to act quickly, to make an impact and to have influence, and   often we find it hard to withstand the temptation to return as quickly as possible to the world of relevance.  But when we persevere with the help of a gentle discipline, we slowly come to hear the still small voice and to sense the gentle breeze of the Spirit. This week find a place where the distractions are not visible and a time where the phone can be powered down. Sit before your Heavenly Father and give him your time.

“Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.”  Psalm 46:10
