Quietly Awesome

“Quietly Awesome” by Kirk Hunt


Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

Psalms 46:10 KJV


Find a quiet spot. Sit down. Turn off all of the phones, displays and electronic gizmos. Just sit in the quiet of a gentle breeze and listen as the birds chirp contentedly to God.


It is in the quiet moments that God is especially God. He doesn’t need the 24 hour news cycle. You can see and hear His power and exaltedness in the rustle of grass or the warmth of a summer afternoon.


You have a part to play in the building of God’s Kingdom on earth. As important as your faithful work is, God is exalted despite it, not because of it. God will be exalted in the minds and hearts of men because of who He is, not because of what we do.


Take an opportunity to simply spend time with Him. Not in the stunning majesty of His awesomeness, but in the peaceful stillness of His quietness. While He is always more than we can know, he makes a place and space where we can see Him in calm and stillness.


Take the time to watch a sunset or doze in a sunbeam. The quiet peacefulness you hear is God’s glory and power. Watch him be exalted in the quiet stillness


Think : God is exalted, especially in the quiet moments


Pray: “Lord, Help me to see You in stillness and calm.”
