Be still and know that I am God. (Psalm 46:10) There is a sweet stillness in the prayer of Christ. When the Lord says, “for thine is the Kingdom, and the power and the glory”, I can almost hear the CALM CONFIDENCE of His heart. He doesn’t say that the kingdom and power and glory WILL be God’s. He say it IS! Absolute certainty. To be certain before God, one must be certain of God. We must hear His promises and then hold to them. Reading the book of Amos has made me aware that the threatened “famine for the Word of God” (Amos 8:11) is already in effect. The desperate need of this present hour is for “ears to hear”. I will take time this afternoon to seek the Lord that I may hear clearly and then speak boldly as I have been called to do. Will you pray with me?
