Knowing…

i seem to be getting more tired with the passing of each day. How is that possible when all i do is sit at the pool or the beach?

This morning i woke up with a major headache and so i began praying and of course eventually listening. What i heard caused me to respond “Seriously!” “Is that really all you have to say to me?” The words were all to familiar, “Be still and know!” Coming up on six years and that’s still the word? i am quite aware that God is the same yesterday, today and forever, but i thought that perhaps He had a larger vocabulary. Then i suppose there is the possibility that He has and my mind, will, and emotions just have not gotten it?

Okay God if that’s the word for today, i receive it. But… if i’m going to get the same word then let me try to get new… no, more meaning from it.

1 Timothy 4:11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let Him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever.

Once again i am at a verse that talks about what my words should be. Perhaps the miracle for me today will come in the form of some words i speak? During this trip it seems as though the overall message is to “Be.” There is that challenge once again. In the same writings of 1 Timothy these words come from verse 12. Beloved or, ed, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you: BUT… rejoice ed, inasmuch as you are a partaker of Christ’s sufferings; that, when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

When His glory shall be revealed. When He decides to reveal His plan. This time of being still is preparation for those times and it won’t be about what i am to do in a year or two, it will be about “That God in ALL things will be glorified.

I am reminded of these words today and then, it’s off to the beach for a morning nap.

He who knows not and knows not that he knows not is a fool, avoid him.
He who knows not and knows that he knows not is a student, teach him.
He who knows and knows not that he knows is asleep, wake him.
He who knows and knows that he knows is a wise man, follow him.
