I read my Bible every day, I pray when I drive somewhere and also when I am taking a bike ride. It is usually during these times when I am talking with God or reading his word that I get inspiration about what to discuss with you.
This morning I read the Bible, I read Dear Abby (great place to find fodder for messages) and I also went through a lot of postings from different discussion groups (all “Christian” or “Messianic” of one type or another) looking for something.
And after all of that “research”, I got nuttin’.
That’s when it hit me- sometimes, nothing is still something. And what that something is, is that waiting on the Lord often means just that- waiting. Not getting any messages, not having any revelation, not even a hint as to what is going on. Just a complete and utter silence.
And you know what? I think that is OK.
Just as God gave us the Shabbat (Sabbath Day) to take a break from our everyday lives, we also can take a break, now and then, from everything.
If you have a problem at work, give it up to God, take a break from worrying about it and wait for a change.
If you have personal issues with family or friends, take a break from the pain of it, place it in God’s hands and patiently wait to see what he does about it.
If you are struggling with a spiritual crisis, let it simmer for a while and give yourself a break.
I believe that sometimes doing absolutely nothing is the best something to do.
And, since I try to practice what I preach, I am now going to take a break.
