There’s a popular saying “ Silence is violence”
But Remember when Jesus was being led as a lamb to the slaughter ..
He opened not his mouth , He remained silent.. maybe the key to reigning in life is a lot less talking and a lot more trusting??
He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth. Isaiah 53:7
Be swift to hear , Sloooooow to speak and , slow to wrath for the wrath of man does nothing to work the righteousness of God James 1:19
Sometimes the most powerful thing that we can do is to remain silent , to not attempt to always defend ourselves knowing that God is our defense .
Sometimes it’s more powerful to actually stand still and behold the salvation of the Lord ..
I m beginning to see that God will show up if we will just calm down and give Him the opportunity to demonstrate His power and grace in our lives .. Greater is He that’s in you then he that’s in the world ..
In the natural it looked like Jesus was loosing but in reality He was crushing the head of the serpent and was putting to death the thing that was reigning over us.. Fear of death …
I’m reminded of what the Apostle Paul says in
Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
As it is written: "For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter."
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor ( Corrupt Government) nor things present nor things to come,
nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
