Beyond Words

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

• God's people, including each one us, can be "stiff necked" and that presents us with fresh challenges; we cannot, dare not, rely on yesterday's manifestation of God's Goodness.

• We need fresh displays of glory, even now.

• Experience God's presence in silence vs serving word salad.

• We are like a jar of river water all shaken up and what we need is stillness and silence so we can settle and things to become clear."

• The picture of still water and settled sediment was compelling to me.

• It offered the hope of peace, clarity, and deeper certainty.

• Honor comes from giving thanks to God

• Being Silent to hear God

• Giving up control and giving it to God

• Relationship requires for us to listen and talk....which one do you do most?

• Like in a river...until we are still things are not always clear!
