Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #85

Scripture: Isaiah 53

In our culture today, it seems as though one of the hardest things for us to do is to slow down and be still for any length of time. From the time we get out of bed in the morning to the time we turn in at night, we are always busy and always on the go. Many of us rush from one destination to another, running errands, fulfilling job duties, catching up with friends, and handling family issues. Even during "down time" when we should be relaxing, our fingers fly over handheld devices. While we are sitting in the recliner or laying in bed, we are surfing the web, checking e-mail, video chatting, and collaborating with co-workers on job projects. We find it nearly impossible to just be still.

In our passage for today, I want us to notice how King David goes into the Tabernacle and takes the time to "sit before the Lord."

There are times when we need to leave our normal duties and get alone with God. We, too, need to sit before the Lord.
