As an expectant mother, one of the greatest comforts in knowing your baby is ok, is feeling their little kicks and punches. I get comfort in feeling that movement and I know that movement means life. I thought about this and how it is so similar to the way we can feel the Holy Spirit and know that our God is alive and with us. Where there is movement there is life. What a comfort in knowing each time you feel Him move in your heart and life, He is allowing you to know He’s still there. There are times, we wonder if He’s sleeping, but rest assured, He is always there. He is protecting us from things we never see. He’s leading us through so that we can grow. He’s carrying us through hard times to give us rest. He is challenging us to be more like Him. He is blessing us even though we don’t deserve it. He does it all because He loves us. Sometimes when I want to feel my baby move and make sure he is ok, I relax and stay still and wait for him to move. Maybe you need to stand still and let God move. If we don’t stop and be still, sometimes we miss out on seeing and feeling Him move.
“He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.” (Psalm 121:3-4)
“And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.” (Exodus 14:13)
“Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you.” (2 Chronicles 20:17)
