Silence, Stillness and Centering before God (2 Minutes)
1 Timothy 3:1-3 (NIV)
3 Here is a trustworthy saying: Whoever aspires to be an overseerdesires a noble task. 2 Now the overseer is to be above reproach,faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable,able to teach, 3 not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.
1.Read a passage of scripture, for example the verse in this post. What is this passage saying? Take at least 2 minutes to absorb what it is saying.
2.Invite God to reveal your heart and ask yourself: “Is there a truth in this passage that I haven’t fully embraced?” If so, embrace it by telling God you are committed to it. Ruminate on the truth for at least 2 minutes until you absorb it.
3.Invite God to reveal your heart and ask yourself: “Is there a virtue or action in this passage that I am not fully embracing?” If so, embrace it by telling God you are committed to it. Determine the next step in committing to the virtue or action and then take it as soon as possible.
4.Ask God to show you anything haven’t fully embraced as well as anything else He desires and sit with God for at least sixty seconds. If He gives an impression then cooperate accordingly.
