Lie Still and Wait
We are told to "fight the good fight of faith", but are you to point today where you feel you have no strength left to fight? If it is a physical or spiritual battle you are experiencing, take note of this giant of faith. Hudson Taylor was so feeble in the closing months of his life that he wrote a dear friend: "I am so weak I cannot write; I cannot read my Bible; I cannot even pray. I can only lie still in God's arms like a little child, and trust."
This wonderful man of God with all his spiritual power came to a place of physical suffering and weakness where he could only lie still and trust.
And that is all God asks of you, His dear child, when you grow faint in the fierce fires of affliction. Do not try to be strong. Just be still and know that He is God, and will sustain you, and bring you through.
"There will be silence before You, and praise in Zion, O God,..." Psalm 65:1a
Christ's blessings on you today, as you wait silently before Him, keeping in mind that you are loved!!!
