PEACE BE STILL BIBLE VERSE
WHAT DOES PEACE BE STILL MEAN?
Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon
your bed, and BE STILL. Selah.
it mean to commune upon your bed?
It is speaking of praying ...
And when we
are praying and communing with the Lord ...
remember that we are oft times awaiting a still small voice
And He said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the
LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and
strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the
rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and
after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the
earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD
was not in the fire: and after the fire a STILL SMALL VOICE.
hear a still small voice, we too must BE STILL.

WHAT DOES PEACE BE STILL MEAN IN THE BIBLE?
unable to have our mind and body BE STILL is also a major
hindrance to prayer. Remember back in school when teachers
would always tell the class to calm down and sit still?
Remember how hard that was sometimes? Why can't we learn
while running around? We can listen and move at the same
time, can't we?
we BE STILL?
want to hear what someone has to say, what do you do? Get
up and move around while they are talking? No, you sit down
with them. While they are talking, you do not ponder on and
worry about other matters, you still your mind and body,
while focusing on what they are saying.
with God? Do we still our bodies and minds when we seek to
commune with HIM? Are we to pray to Him while constantly
moving about never stilling ourselves enough to hear what He
has to say back to us and then have the audacity to claim
that He never talks to us?
find it difficult to BE STILL?
PEACE BE STILL BIBLE VERSE WARNING
WHAT DOES PEACE BE STILL MEAN FOR CHRISTIANS?
The TRUTH is that
we are usually so busy trying to deal with matters in our
lives OURSELVES that we do not HEAR Him. This happens so
often that He has to come to us in our dreams when we are
not ... SO BUSY:
For God speaketh once, yea twice, YET MAN PERCEIVETH IT NOT.
In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep
falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then He
openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction
If we want
to HEAR GOD, then we must CHOOSE to still our mind and body
by putting away Worldly thoughts ... Refuse to run at any whim ...
Be still and listen to and for God. Still our spirit/mind
by refusing to worry about anything for a few minutes, by
refusing to think of everything you need to get done that
day ... but just focus on GOD and listen.
When a lil
child is frightened or worried, how do we comfort them? Do
we raise our voice and throw our hands up in panic or do we
hold the child still and say quietly, "Shhhhhhh, everything
is alright"? We try to still the child's body and mind so
they can focus on our whispers of comfort and peace ... just as
God tries to do with us.
Now it is
easy to sit here and admit that being still should be done ...
But, HOW do we obtain and maintain this ability to still our
mind and body though?
practice the art of BEING STILL ... Just as waves are
constantly moving every second of every day, our minds are
bombarded with thoughts all day long. GOD can calm the
waves, just as He can calm your spirit and body:
He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are
still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so He
bringeth them unto their desired haven.
Our souls long for serenity within
all day, every day. Some kind of comfort. Some kind of
quiet. Someone to slow down our thoughts, worries and
anxiety from our troubled lives. GOD is the One who can and
will calm the storms within us and provide us peace when we
are still. From this peace will come forth ... Our desired
PEACE BE STILL BIBLE VERSE PROMISE
WHAT DOES PEACE BE STILL MEAN AND HOW DO I OBTAIN IT?
CHOOSE to ASK Him:
For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh
findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
So let us
ASK Him to calm us ... To help us to be still within. Do not
forget, you must believe that He can and will calm you
within for Him to do so.
Believe to receive:
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire,
when ye pray, BELIEVE that ye RECEIVE them, and YE SHALL
Jesus and the Apostles were out on a boat, a terrible storm
came upon them. While Jesus was sleeping, the disciples
feared for their lives. They awoke Him and ASKED HIM for
help. They knew He would be able to keep them safe.
DID JESUS DO?
And He arose and REBUKED the wind, and said unto the sea,
PEACE BE STILL ... And the wind ceased, and there was a
must CHOOSE to REBUKE those thoughts that try and flood our
minds when we seek to BE STILL within. We must focus on HIM.
But, this is easier said than done huh? Distractions seem to
pour into our lives during the precious time we seek to
spend with God.
of these Distractions don'tcha ...
the times you have prayed in the past. You finally silence
your surroundings and try to calm your mind and you start
talking to God and ask Him a question.
suddenly WHAM .......
one of the most effective tools that the enemy of our soul
uses to negatively affect our time with God is to pour in
thoughts ... Thoughts about ANYTHING ... EVERYTHING. Having us
ponder or worry about our “to do” list in the midst of
communing with God. Yeah, this is probably NOT God telling
you to leave Him to go deal with something YOURSELF.
there are times when God DOES have things occur or places
HIS thoughts within our mind or even body ... For example ...
Ever notice your hand tingling and slowly closing as if
Someone is holding it? Maybe God is saying I am holding your
hand. Are your knees tingling? Maybe He is asking you to
kneel? Does your ear itch? Maybe God is telling you to
listen more carefully. Do you get a CHILL up your spine?
is saying ... I am HERE.
might use pictures or thoughts to speak to us. When we are
completely still and in the presence of Him, He may put a
thought of something that He would like you to do for Him in
your mind, or a picture of something that you need to work
need to learn to BE STILL. Only when we are still... Can we
truly TUNE IN to God. Stilling our body, will still our mind
which in turn will still our soul and spirit. Then peace
will overtake us. You feel comfort and rest. Overwhelming
peace. And it all starts with being still and focusing on
the Lord ... This is REST FOR OUR SOULS.
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I
will give you rest. "Take My yoke upon you and learn from
Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find
rest for your souls.
Rest for our souls? Is that really
possible to possess in our troubled lives?
only turn to God instead of having confidence in ourselves.
Be still and faithful as we await the Lord. In quiet
confidence ... In HIM:
For thus says the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel:
"In returning and rest you shall be saved; In
quietness and confidence shall be your strength."
it Himself ...
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the
world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be
troubled, neither let it be afraid.
PEACE BE STILL BIBLE VERSE SUMMARY
WHAT DOES PEACE BE STILL MEAN? IT MEANS ... LET GO AND LET GOD.
wants you to know that HE has everything under control. HE
will take care of everything. TRUST in Him. When we STILL
our busy minds and CHOOSE to trust in and focus on HIM, He
will keep us in perfect peace:
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose MIND is stayed on
thee: because he TRUSTETH IN THEE.
TRUST ... IN THE LORD
