Read: Psalm 46:10

Use Matthew Sleeth’s method of coming before God in silence and stillness to be silent before the Lord today. Remember take one word of the end of Psalm 46:10’s opening line. “Be still and know that I am God” “Be still and know that I am” “Be still and know that I” etc. Take moments in between to really meet with the Lord and be silent before Him.
