Trusting ~ Names Of God AQTE OLS — Week Seven
Have you learned to be still and know your God?
One of the greatest lessons we learn from looking at the life of Jesus is His intimacy with the Father.
He took time to be alone in prayer, pouring out His heart to the Father.
In Mark 1:35 we learn that “in the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there.”
Time alone with God is such a secret to knowing and trusting Him more.
You can’t trust what you don’t know. And you can’t know a person without spending time with them.
Everything in our world clamors for attention. Time alone with God involves intention and a resolute heart to draw near to Him.
I love the words of Tozer this week —
I pray that we will be the ones to step away from the clamoring crowd, grab our Bibles, and draw near to God.
There is only one more week of study in Trusting in the Names of God — A Quiet Time Experience. May you draw near to your Lord and know Him more intimately this week.
As always, I want you to know that my prayer and my goal for all of us is found in Psalm 9:10 —
Lord, we pray now that we will know Your names and put our trust in You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
God bless you, dear friend, and may you be filled with trust as you discover who God is, what God says, and what God does in His names.
