Kate, the host of Five Minute Friday said…
The Lord is good to those who depend on Him, to those who search for Him. So it is good to sit quietly for salvation from the Lord…Let them sit alone in silence beneath the Lord’s demands. Lamentations 3.25,26,28
Has God Himself ever told you to sit still and be silent?
He did me.
Several years ago one of my adult children was making bad choices – choices that would adversely affect the whole dynamic of our family. That adult child kept a$king me for help but, alas the Lord said these words to me…
Sit still my daughter until … Ruth 3.18
Ten months of silence ensued. My adult child accused me of a lot of not-nice things. I told that child I was being obedient to what the Lord had instructed me.
I did not return texts.
I remained in silence.
Was it hard? One of the hardest things I’ve ever done.
But when HE SAID, “Now,” it was sweet. My until had come.
Have you ever been asked to sit in the silence?
