A Circle of Quiet

16 Sep

God’s Word: Psalms 94

God’s Attributes:

(15)  Provides a circle of quiet within the clamor of evil.

(19)  When I was upset and beside myself, you calmed me down and cheered me up.

God’s Message to me:

From the days Psalms was written until today—mankind still is asking for the same thing.  You want me to deliver you BEFORE any trials come into your life.  You make your choices and get yourself in trouble yet want me to deliver you before things get bad.  Don’t you realize you need to have some trials in order to grow strong?  There is no other way.  The spoiled child never makes a strong adult.  As children need to suffer the consequences in order to learn—so do you.

What I offer you is a circle of quiet within the clamor of evil around you.  Step into my circle and rest amidst the trials that surround you.  When you are upset and beside yourself I will calm you down and cheer you up.  Don’t you understand—for your own good I cannot remove all trials from your life or I am taking away your free will.  But what I am willing and able to do is carry you through those storms.

Reach out to me in the midst of life’s storms and be at peace—whatever the storms are. It will take effort on your part but that is part of strengthening you.  Choose my peace!  Step into my circle of quiet.  And then—you can reach out to others and draw them into the circle also.

God’s question for me:

Will you choose my circle of quiet within the clamor of trouble that surrounds you—and seek to be a circle of quiet for others also?

God’s promise to me:

As I see you treating others—I will treat you.
