Dan Wilson: An Encounter in the Stillness

"Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." Psalm 46:10

Be still. Abba is wooing us, drawing His beloved into the quiet, secret place where we can renew our heart's knowledge of Him as God.

Recently we spent three days in the isolated far northern town of Kotzebue, Alaska. God took us there. This small, seaside city of 3000 people was completely frozen. Every house was built on stilts so that they would not melt the permafrost.

The ocean was frozen and vast, ice as far as the eye could see. In the distance were snow-covered mountains, shining before the expanse of blue sky. It was beautiful – stark beauty, yes, but so beautiful. The sea's surface was covered in miniature sculptures of snow and ice sparkling like diamonds. These works of art were fashioned by the finger of God.

An Encounter With He Is!

Walking alone on the frozen ocean, God came. The weight of His presence was intense, requiring that we stand still, immoveable for some time. Quiet. Powerful. Awesome in the truest sense of the word.

In this magnificent encounter He reminded us simply that, "He is." He is strong. He is mighty. He is gentle. He is kind. He is lovely. He is aware. He is creative. He is wise. He is safe. He is not safe. He is immense. He is holy. He is. He is!

This passionate, beautiful God Almighty is calling the Bride, calling YOU, to the secret place with Him. He is longing to be alone with you. He wants to show Himself to you again. He desires to stir your heart. And, He will settle your heart.

Dare you meet with Him?

Perhaps a few days fast from the noise of the world is in order. Even an afternoon sitting alone in the beauty of nature will be attractive to Jesus. He will meet you there. He is calling you. Listen. The Spirit of the Lord is reminding us in this season to "Be still, and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10).

It is from this place of stillness that He will send you out to the world. It begins in a quiet place and ends with a glorious shout! He will indeed be exalted among the nations. He will be exalted in the earth!
