WHEN WE PRAY part 2
The deepest destiny of your life is to descend ever deeper,
with quiet yet ever-increasing intensity, into the endless love of God.
- Dane Ortlund
Be still, and know that I am God.
- Be Still: HURRY is the great enemy of the soul.
Superficiality is the curse of our age. The doctrine of instant satisfaction is a primary spiritual problem. The desperate need today is not for a great number of intelligent people, or gifted people, but for deep people.
- Richard Foster
- Know: PRACTICE the presence of God.
Whether we are aware of it or not, at every moment of our existence we are encountering God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who is trying to catch our attention, trying to draw us into a reciprocal conscious relationship.”
- William Barry
- I am God: Which means I AM NOT God.
- STEPS TO STILLNESS
- PHYSICAL stillness
Find a quiet space. No tech distractions. Can be on couch, in car/bedroom.
- MENTAL stillness
Write down the “to do” lists that keep popping up. Push through distracting thoughts.
- EMOTIONAL stillness
Hand over to God your fears, hurts, unforgiveness, self-righteousness, things that have made you angry at God, anything you’re holding onto.
