Stillness; the Beautiful Stance of Worshiping God

Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by the Holy Spirit
Written by: Teresa Criswell

"Call unto me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty (remarkable) things which have never seen before."
~ God, as recorded in Jeremiah 33:3.



You may be going through grief caused by divorce;
an unexpected death of your precious child, or beloved spouse, a beautiful family member and friend.
Maybe you have just found out you have been betrayed by your spouse, friend or family member.
Or it is possible that you are the one who has betrayed someone and regret overwhelms you, you even feel that your life is over.
Perhaps you are torn with knowing that the relationship you are in is destructive, and you know you need to pray for that person, but you also know that you need the courage to leave.
Others may have experienced a job loss and with that, your identity unknowingly was wrapped up in that position you held.
You may feel stripped, exposed, naked and unclothed by any of these countless situations...but please know that this is your opportunity to cry out to Jesus Who clothes, embraces and comforts as revealed by the Holy Spirit.
Don't move.
Don't speak.
Listen.
Look and see.
He is right there with you.
Yet, not only is He with you, He longs to hold you and embrace you.
He desires to show you remarkable exploits which you have never seen or heard of before.
Open your eyes and listen...do you hear the whisper within your spirit?
He bids you to come to Him.
Will you come? Please, do so now.
In the middle of the chaos, just be still.
Breathe through your nose, all the way in and slowly. Now, exhale, meditating on the 'giganticness' of God. Watch and see how He tears down, annihilates and obliterates the intimidating giants that are insatiably drooling for your very life. God longs to dwarf every real situation that comes in the form of a giant and put them in their place.

In the midst of the whirling, destructive winds of life, stillness is your recognition of declaring "I know You are God; you are My God."

Stillness is a beautiful stance of worshiping God.
