Finding Solitude In A Fast-Paced Life


“Be still, and know that I am God.”–Psalm 46:10 NIV


“Be still, and know that I am God.”–Psalm 46:10 NIV

In an incredibly fast-paced life, it is easy to find yourself at odds trying to “find” a little time in your day for quiet meditation. When you place being busy above God, time will begin to slip away as you mutter some half-hearted “please do” list and become embroiled in “your” day.

God longs to give you direction; you have to take the time to listen. Make your quiet time with God the priority of every day. Give Him that time of quiet solitude when you are most alert and have focus. Greet Him before the busyness of the day clouds your mind.

Be Quiet. Relax. Feel His presence.

Now, before you ask for anything, open His Word and read. It is as important for you to hear from Him as it is for Him to hear from you. He knows your needs; he’s already promised to meet every single one of them.

Ask, not for things, but ask if there’s someone He wants you to reach today, a lesson He wants you to learn, or a pitfall for which you need to be on guard? Ask Him if there is a new truth He wants you to learn today. Take time to write down what you hear in your spirit.

Now have an open and honest conversation with the Father. Today you know all that you need to know, He is good and He is God!

Prayer Focus

  • Pray for God to help you eliminate busyness from your day.
  • Thank God that He is always available for you to spend time with Him.
