Becoming Like Jesus: Silence and Solitude

Devotional

My Song

Pray…

Heavenly Father, here I am. Teach me more about who you are today. Jesus, make me more like you in these moments. Holy Spirit, please open my eyes to what you want me to see and help me to hear your voice. In Jesus’ name, amen.

The Lord is my strength and my defense [song];
he has become my salvation. Psalm 118:14 NIV

Consider…

This week we have seen multiple traits of God through the worship songs called Psalms. Hopefully, as you have met with God, He’s reminded you of things you already knew and worshiped Him for, as well as taught you new things about His character that you can start to sing about. That’s another beautiful thing about God—there’s always more. There are always deeper places He wants to take us. Let Him teach you a new song as you get to know Him more throughout the rest of this Plan.

What’s something you already knew about God that you were reminded of this week?

What’s something new you discovered about the character and nature of God this week?

What’s your favorite thing you have learned up to this point about who God is? Why does that thing stick out to you?

Listen…

Set a timer for 5-10 minutes.

Lead into your listening by praying Psalm 46:10 over yourself. “Be still and know that I am God.” Still yourself. Take some deep breaths. Keep repeating those words, dropping off one phrase at a time, until you are just reminding yourself to “Be.”

Be still and know that I am God.
Be still and know that I AM.
Be still and know.
Be still.
Be.

Ask God to speak to you.

When you get distracted, come back to Jesus by bringing your favorite worship song to mind or even playing it out loud while you listen for God to speak.
