Learning to Sit at His Feet
31 Days of Following Jesus
October 12, 2017
To Follow Jesus, First Stand Still
“And Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today…For the Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace’” (Exodus 14:13-14).
The Lord constantly reminds me to be still in His presence. He tells me to take time to hear from Him so that I will know how best to follow Him, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Even though I have experienced His leadership and His will in the past, I sometimes forget–just as the children of Israel forgot.
– Clara Nell Shirey,
Intercessor, JESUS Film Project
Father, in the mighty name of Jesus, give us a greater desire to sit in Your presence, to realize afresh and anew that You are the Way, the Truth and the Life. Not only to know You personally, but to desire to follow You daily.
Praise the Lord for the JESUS film. It has been shown in more than 1,500 languages and in every nation in the world. To date, it is responsible for 7.7 billion estimated viewings of the gospel and 530 million estimated decisions for Christ!
There are 5 billion people currently living in darkness, separated from God’s love. Pray that the new translations of the JESUS film will be made available to them, so they can learn how much Jesus loves them in their own heart language.
