1. Be Still- We live in an agitated world and society, were people are always worried about everything, the news media is always fearful of happenings and the unexpected; the entertainment industry is always pushing you to believe the bizzarre, the government is always bringing up weird laws and the list goes on of how our immediate environment and society tries to shift our focus off God unto the evil around us. proverbs23:7 reveals that as a man thinks in His heart, so is He eventually. To discover purpose or to fulfil purpose, would require you going the opposite direction of all the earlier mentioned patterns because the evil of our immediate society is that it tries to drag you down to its immature and opressed level. But when you focus your mind on God and rest in His love for you, knowing that He wants you to have the very thing you are seeking after,then you will find yourself coming up to His frequency. You cannot be dinning with the world in your thoughts and be agitated as they are and expect to hear the glorious sound of heaven thunder in your direction. It is not that God would not be speaking (because He speaks everytime and everywhere) but the issues is that you would not be tuned in to receive from Him. Consider this, heaven is a radio station that runs 24/7, her signals are strong and all her offered programs are always top quality. You access or listen to the brodcast of this radio station by the bandwidth of the Holy Spirit in you, for Jesus said, He would take of mine and show it unto you John16:13-15. Without Him, you access nothing because He is the one that awakens your spirit to receive from God. Your spirit is the radio, by which you hook up with the bandwidth of the HolySpirit to access whatsoever is spoken by the father and the sonProverbs20:27. Once again, this radio station is of high definition technology, the band widthof the Holy Spirit never fails nor falter, signals are always perfect and the waves are always flowing without interruption. The issue always is that you can have all of these working and still not hear a thing from the radio station because of the following reasons:
a) You refused to put on your radio by shuting the HolySpirit out and focusing on the trouble of this world. Once you do this, your spirit becomes latent and cant hook up with the bandwidth of the HolySpirit because you access and interact with this world with your body which is made up of your five physical senses of touch, smell, sight, hearing and taste therefore you become more earthly minded rather than being heavenly minded and being earthly minded leads to caos while being heavenly minded lewds to rest. You contact the spiritual world by your spirit, thus there is no how you can hear from God without your spirit being set to receive from Him.
b) You refuse to tune your radio(Spirit) to the right station(heavenly broadcast) by this,you miss out on what God is saying, not because God is not speaking but because you are not listening you cant hear a thing. In this situation, your rafio is on, but it is hooked on the wrong station and most times it is always to the devil and his wicked demons who are ever set to steal the word and promises of God in our spirit. So when we listn to his liew long enough we begin to fret and doubt Gods word to us and soon become believers of his lies rather than thr truth of Gods word. If you belong to this category, I’m sent to tell you, that it is time to change that dial, to plug off from the devil and hook on to God, for Jesus is calling you and saying to you “Come! Come unto me all of you that are laboured and heavy laden and i will give you rest” Matt.11:28-30. It is time to hook on to heavens broadcast and this time, forever. Tune in to heaven and leave the dial permernently on heaven, for you would be shocked the things you would hear and discover of the father and about yourself, for the manufacturer knows the product better than the product itself. So hook up with the manufacturer, let him tell you what He created you to do and the potential he created you to reach, let Him reveal ‘All’ to you.
Being still helps your Spirit focus on heaven; rest, sharpens your sensitivity towards God. Stillness is not a luxury but a necessity when it comes to receiving from God and if knowing His will, especially where your life is concerned is your goal.
