Fire of God is here.
THE DEEPEST WORK of GOD
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth is removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though its waters roar and be troubled; though the mountains shake with its swelling. … Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge” (Psalm 46:1-3, 10-11).
“Be still and know that I am God!” is an incredible verse about which many songs have been written and countless sermons
have been preached. But what exactly does it mean to be still? Does it mean that we simply do nothing?
Perhaps you are wondering how exactly you are supposed to be still when all around you is noise and flurry – even that which claims to represent God. How do you let down your hands and give up trying to figure everything out when that is all you have ever done?
In reality, the deepest work of God is that which takes place in the hidden man of the heart. It is not something that makes a
lot of noise. The Lord Himself expressed this truth as He called to His own people through the prophet Isaiah: “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´” (Isaiah 30:15).
In other words, “You would have found true strength by letting go of all human effort and putting your confidence in the work that only I can do.” That is the real essence of Christian growth. Remember, the Christian life is a supernatural life. None of us can make ourselves holy – we can only yield our lives to the One who does this sanctifying work within us.
