Walking in Silence

June 8, 2018

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. (John C. Maxwell)

Despair like fear is routed in a lie. But when your feeling it, it’s sure hard to remember this. That’s why, just like our body’s and mind, our spirit must be strengthened through practicing Gods presence and exercising our faith.

A verse…

For if you remain silent, I will be like those who go down to the pit.
Psalm 28:1

A reading…
DIVINE SILENCE? OUR FEELING OF DESPAIR

The psalm then turns from despair to joy (vv. 6–9). This shift in David’s emotional journey is raw, heartfelt, anguished—and full of faith. The psalms are emotionally honest, but they never wallow in self-centeredness. Despite his feelings, David still knows God to be his strength, shield, and shepherd. Though He seems silent now, He is a God who hears, speaks, saves, and blesses, and He will be true to His character.

Psalm 28:6-9 NLT
[6] Praise the LORD! For he has heard my cry for mercy. [7] The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. [8] The LORD gives his people strength. He is a safe fortress for his anointed king. [9] Save your people! Bless Israel, your special possession. Lead them like a shepherd, and carry them in your arms forever.

A prayer…
Dear God, Abba Father, Lord Jesus, I’ve learned through practicing Your presence. That even when I feel Your silence and think I’m all alone. You are there, You are with me. This doesn’t change my feelings of despair, but I know it will pass. And whatever I’m going through or dealing with is only temporary. For You are eternal and through Jesus I have Your promise that I cling to with each breath. This and only this, is what affects how others see me during the storms of life, and shows Your presence in me. Let me never forget. Amen
