Still.

“Mountains are still being moved.
Strongholds are still being loosed.
God we believe.
Yes, we can see it
That wonders are still what you do.

Bodies are still being raised.
Giants are still being slayed.
God we believe
Yes, we can see it
Wonders are still what you do.”

This is a Move by Tasha Cobbs-Leonard

Still.

There are many definitions for this word, but the one I want to focus on is this.

Always, continually.
In a progressive manner: increasingly
In spite of that: nevertheless.

-Merriam Webster Dictionary

When I first heard this song by Tasha Cobbs-Leonard the line that stuck with me the most was the very last one. “Wonders are still what you do.” 

Still.

That means that God is still able, He is always working, and in spite of some of the choices or decision we have made that may have us thinking otherwise, guess what. Wonders are still what He does.

God is still in the works of doing wonders in your life. He is still able, He is still mighty, and He is still faithful. All we need is one move from God.

This led me to think, what am I doing as I wait for God to move? Am I moving towards Him in prayer and devotionals? Am I still praising and worshiping God? Or am I still growing impatient and discouraged? Am I still complaining? Or am I just standing still?

When facing moments of stillness; times where it seems or feels as if God is not moving or present, that is when it is most vital that we move towards God. Get into His presence through the word. Get into His presence through praise. Get into His presence through worship. Just get into His presence. This is where we apply the definition of still. See the following:

“God, I may feel alone right now but I will still (always, continually) worship you.”
“Lord, it seems like it’s just one thing after another, yet your praise will still (increasingly) be on my lips!”
“All hope seems to be lost, but nevertheless I will still (in spite of) trust in your Word and in you!”

You may think that I’m crazy, but I would never encourage you to do something that I haven’t done for myself. I know what it feels like to be afraid and worrisome. I know what it feels like to have done all you can and have no other choice but to give it to God. I know what it feels like to not want to be in God’s presence, but it’s the only place where I needed to be and ever felt peace. I know what it feels like to stand still and I know what it feels like to still move towards God. I highly recommend the latter. Not only does it grow your faith in God and your relationship with Him, but you will be filled with such an unexplained peace and grace.

I pray that you continue to move towards God today and always, Beloved. I’m rootin’ for you.

Rejoicing always,

Davina
