Salvation by Grace Alone, Simple Family-Integrated Worship

Be Still and Know God (Psalm 46, Part 2)

We can get so busy in this world, never stopping to be still, relax, and commune personally with God. We must spend time in private, personal, closet devotion, speaking to the Lord as our friend. It’s vital for our spiritual growth and stability for us to spend time personally in private with the Lord, to be still and know that the Lord is our God.


Walking in the Spirit

We are wholly dependent upon the Holy Spirit in every action of our lives. Therefore, we need to be vigilant to “walk in the Spirit” and forsake the lusts of the flesh. We are dependent upon the Spirit to worship, to preach, to pray, or even to obey God at all. We need to pray to God to give us the special manifestation of the Holy Spirit in our daily lives.


God Is Our Refuge (Psalm 46)

In the midst of calamity and distress, we find protection and safety and refuge in our God. We can get very nervous, afraid, and anxious from the world around us but instead we need to “be still” (relax, take a deep breath, stop moving, be still) and remember that God is still God, the Lord is still on his throne, “know that I am God”. God is with us at all times in our lives but especially during our times of need, a very present help in times of trouble as our refuge for safety and protection.


In Love

When we were put “In Christ”, then we were also placed “In Love” because Jesus Christ is Love. We consider the great love wherewith God has loved us, and we are “in love” in Jesus Christ. But then, it’s incumbent upon us to love others as Christ has loved us – for us to walk in love, speak the truth in love, and love our neighbors as Christ loved us. It’s by our displays of love to others that men can see our good works of love and call us disciples of Jesus Christ, who is Love Personified.

In Christ

We are legally and positionally “in Christ”, both in eternity and in time. We were placed “in Christ” before the world began, not based upon our works but we were put in Christ by God’s unconditional grace. Therefore, since we didn’t do anything to get “in Christ”, there is also nothing we can do to get “out of Christ”. We are truly part of Jesus, part of body, and bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh and Jesus cannot and will not deny himself.


Habakkuk’s Prayer for Revival and Mercy

“O Lord, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O Lord, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.” (Habakkuk 3:2)

This prayer of Habakkuk should set the tone for our prayers every day, but especially during the times we are living in today. It seems we live in a culture very similar to Habakkuk’s day, bemoaning the reality of ungodliness and justifiably frustrated with the wickedness in the culture around us. We question like Habakkuk, “O Lord how long?” How long will you seemingly not answer the prayers of your people and allow wickedness to continue to wax greater and greater every day? God, why are you allowing all of this violence and iniquity to occur (Hab. 1:1-4)?
