You’ll be forced at times your life to wander in the desert. You’ll be commanded at times to go forward to take your promised land. Then there will be times in your life when you are to sit quietly and wait upon the Lord. Any one of these times can be months, days, or even years. These times can intertwine. The scariest and most challenging will be when you were called, no commanded, to take your promised land.
The time to sit quietly before the Lord is not five minutes or an hour in the morning. It is not a lifestyle. Its more of a place, a mountain, a beach, or a field in your mind that you rest. It’s a rest for days, months, even years, when you don’t pray, ask, or praise. You rest. It is the quietest of life.
