Solitude is a virtue. Be still



Psalm 46:10

Be still and know that I am God.


 

To be still -not moving or making a sound. (Rest ) (stationary) (motionless)


Know -.

To Be aware of through observation, inquiry, or information.

(Understand) (perceive) (See)



 


Some battles belong to the Lord. Sometimes you may be getting attacked, or things try to form, but God says, child, be still and know who I am. You don’t have to be bothered by this. I have the victory, and it’s under my control. Give me those yokes and burdens. Surrender them, and I will take care of them—no need to fight this battle. Every battle is not for you to fight.

We got to discern the difference between when we should be fighting or letting God fight.

How do we know?


1.) discernment

2.) listening

3.) rest

4.) releasing concerns


 

I like to think we aren’t in solitude because we are spending time with Him, but we are away from all distractions this world may provide if you are in solitude, don’t frown upon solitude because this is an excellent place to be. Solitude is a virtue and good spiritual discipline. I don’t know about you, but I need all the spiritual discipline I can get. In solitude, we can become spiritually recharged. Jesus always went to His secret place to pray. He was in solitude—all the time before He did anything in His life and ministry. We are to imitate Christ, our savior! It is suitable for our spirit.


What would you like to experience in your solitude time?


 


As for myself, I like to listen because I talk so much.

How many times do we pray or talk to God and walk away? Prayer is our communication with God, and we didn’t even let Him talk. We got to stop being self-centered or unaware of our actions. So many times, I hear people say I can’t listen to Him speaking to me. Well, this is one way he speaks, but you’ll never recognize His voice if you don’t listen for His voice.



We should be willing to wait patiently for Him to work out what is best for us.
