“Be still, and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10)
For myself, I have found there are certain practices which help me to be aware of and realize my union with God through Christ. One of them is to practice being still at certain moments throughout the day. It doesn’t matter where I am or what I’m doing; when suddenly I am reminded of the Lord’s presence within me, it becomes the sweetest thing in the world to me to stop, quiet my thoughts, turn my heart toward Him, and be still. If only for a moment-a split second, even-I am brought to such a sense of the Lord Jesus. In that moment I touch the Lord, I taste and see that He is good, and I savor the moving of His life within me. What joy! What privilege! What glory!
I can tell you for a fact that it was a moment of incomparable worth when I first discovered this place within me-which is Spirit-where the Lord dwells. I had always held it to be true in theory, but never really considered the fact that when Paul said “if we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit”, he was talking about something experiential.
What about you? What are some practices you find beneficial in helping to bring you to an awareness and realization of your union with God through Christ? I would be thrilled to hear some of your thoughts on this matter, as well as your own experience with the Lord.
