While We are Waiting

Video Talk

On September 26, 2011, I was reading in 1 Corinthians 10 for my quiet time with the Lord. And the Lord had me write these words (following) and he also had me write a song titled “When in the Stillness.”

The children of Israel had experienced all of God’s blessings and provisions, as well as his guidance, leadership, and protection in bringing them out of slavery. And yet, God was not pleased with them, because they did not obey him. They wanted the blessings of God absent of obedience. So, their lives are examples for us to keep us from setting our hearts on evil, and from becoming followers of idols, in place of being followers of God.

So many times in our lives we allow so many other things to crowd out our times with God and our relationships with him. When we need to be still before our Lord, so that we can hear him speak, we are busy doing other stuff, or we are fretting over this or over that, often involving other things which have become our idols.

So, he calls us to be still, so that we can hear his voice speaking to our hearts, so that he can point these things out to us. Then, we need to recognize the things that are taking his place in our hearts which are not pleasing to God so that we can forsake those. And then we need to draw closer to him in fellowship with him, and in obedience to his Word.

When in The Stillness

An Original Work / September 26, 2011

When in the stillness of this moment,
Speak to me, Lord, I humbly pray.
Be my desire, set me on fire,
Teach me to love always.
Help me to walk in fellowship with You,
Listening to You; sit at Your feet.
Whisper Your words to me,
Oh, how gently, guiding me in Your truth.

While we are waiting for Your blessing,
Lord, in our hearts be King today.
Help us to live for you ev’ry moment,
List’ning to what You say.
May we not stray from your word within us,
Help us obey You, Lord, in all things,
Walking each moment, Lord, in Your presence,
Our offerings to You bring.

Help us to love You, Lord, our master;
Be an example of Your love,
Helping the hurting, lift up the fallen,
Showing them Your great love.
Teach them to love You, follow You always,
Bearing their cross and turning from sin;
Walking in daily fellowship with You,
Making You Lord and King.

  1. Sue, your speaking of idols made remember that an idol is anything that gets more of our time snd attention than God. It can be sports, worry, fear, people pleasing rather than pleasing God, and so many other things. He wants first place in our lives and not the leftovers. I relate to your song of getting still, listening and obeying him.
