Day 9 - 1 Chronicles 16:11-13

2 Minutes - SILENCE, STILLNESS AND CENTERING WITH GOD

1 Chronicles 16:11-13

11 Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.

12 Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,

13 you his servants, the descendants of Israel, his chosen ones, the children of Jacob.

We often feel that if God would just reveal himself today, or if he would just answer our prayers in a mighty way right now, our faith would not waiver. Yet, God is constantly calling us to remember what he has done for us, his faithfulness to the people of Israel and to the people of God throughout history. And yet, answers to our prayers, no matter how miraculous, often get forgotten. Sometimes our faith seems so weak that we doubt in the darkness what we have seen clearly in the light.

John Ortberg writes that after we have been Christians for a while, “God takes away the props so that we can begin to grow true devotion that is strong enough to carry on even when unaided by emotions.” (GICTYT wkbk, p.28)

We must constantly remind ourselves of God’s character, what he is like and how much he loves us. As we remember the way he answered our prayers in the past, we nd strength to trust him to answer our prayers today.

What can you remember of God’s faithfulness in the past that will help you wait patiently for him today?
