Be still and know that I am God Psalm 46:10 KJV
Be still and know..... in other words, "Be still - stop running to and fro - slow down long enough to hear God's voice. And Know - learn personally and experiently-that HE is GOD. There's so much the Lord would like to reveal in me if only I would slow down long enough to hear HIS voice.
So many times my relationship with God is need-centered, rather than God-centered. I am so overwhelmed by my earthly desires that all I think of is, "God, I want You to do this for me, and I want it now."
I have been so consumed with my wants, needs and own little worlds that I fail to explore the depths of God's word and discover what He is like? The bible tells us about Himself, everything is there His characteristics and all the testimonies it behold to learn to wait quietly on HIM. To obey is better than sacrifice... I remember what my Manong told me last Sunday - "you have to obey God, Star and that you will see the result and the fruits of obeying Him"... as what is written the books of 1Samuel 15:23 "Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the Lord? To obey is better that sacrifice.... this passage clearly states that I needed to obey God.... and of course I'm just beginning to grasp something of His true greatness.. I'll know I will be truly amazed!
