God is reminding you to be clear-minded and avoid the chaos that can so easily fill our minds in these days. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:2)
He says to you today, ‘Be still and know that I am God. Delight yourself in Me and I will give you the desires of your heart’ (Psalm 37:4) When you delight yourself completely in Him, He literally places His very desires inside of you. His desires are your desires and your desires are His desires.
But remember also that we are called to wait patiently for the Lord to turn towards you and hear our cry. He will meet you where you are. He asks you to lay down your own desires, waiting and trusting that He will turn towards you because He loves you.
There is a need for patience and perseverance in this season. As you wait patiently on the Lord, He will TURN to you and hear your cry. And if you feel God isn’t hearing you, allow Him to do this work of simply stretching your patience, expanding your capacity to wait on Him. Be still and know He is God! (Psalm 46:10)
I waited patiently for the Lord, He turned to me and heard my cry.
