SUNDAY STILLNESS – Acknowledge God

Sunday Stillness – Acknowledge God

Hummingbird - Psalm 50:11

While reading through the Psalms in The Message I came across this passage.

“This is God, your God,
speaking to you.
I don’t find fault with your acts of worship,
the frequent burnt sacrifices you offer.

But why should I want your blue-ribbon bull,
or more and more goats from your herds?
Every creature in the forest is mine,
the wild animals on all the mountains.

I know every mountain bird by name;
the scampering field mice are my friends.

If I get hungry, do you think I’d tell you?
All creation and its bounty are mine.
Do you think I feast on venison?
or drink draughts of goats’ blood?

Spread for me a banquet of praise,
serve High God a feast of kept promises,
And call for help when you’re in trouble—
I’ll help you, and you’ll honor me” (Psalm 50:7-15, The Message).

The knowledge that God knows everything – He created everything – that is powerful. He even knows the scampering field mice.

All God wants is for us to acknowledge Him. That’s it. (Tweet this)

God asks for 3 things; praise Him, keep His promises and call for help. (Tweet this)

God has gone to great lengths to talk to us. He came from Heaven to earth in the form of Man to get to know us. Jesus knows our every feeling, thought and idea.

Today let’s make sure that we take time and talk to God. Stop what you are doing and just breathe in His Holy Spirit.

Read the Sunday Stillness rules if you are new here.

I would appreciate if you would link only about God’s Word. If you have a linky party that’s okay if it is about the same thing. Please no sales or prizes. I want this to be friendly but I must ask you to abide by the rules. Others want to read God’s Word – and that is what I would like the links to be about. I must take down the links that don’t follow the rules. Thanks so much.


Please check out all the places I link to during the week. Thanks to everyone who has joined Sunday Stillness. I do try to get to your posts every week but I admit sometimes I don’t have the time.

  1. When the church service started this morning, the Pastor called everyone to lift praise and thanksgiving, and this went on for a while, before even one song was sang. He is so worthy of our praise! Blessings and thank you for sharing!

  2. Stopping by from The Sunday Community…love this Scripture and that God gives us simple ways to follow…praise God, kee His promises and call for help… a great direction to ponder this week.

  3. Our God is truly the one and only awesome God! 🙂 I am so thankful to be a part of His creation and to be His child!! ~ Thanks so much for this beautiful post and the link-up community 🙂 Have a blessed day!!

  4. “I’ll help you, and You’ll honor me” – that is a comfort, a hope and a testimony … of God’s unfailing and everlasting love! Thank you for sharing this Psalm & encouraging!

  5. Janis, it’s been a rough week with my husband being gone and as I read your words I realized how at this very moment what I need is to acknowledge God and remember that He is here with me. I’m breathing in His Holy Spirit. Thank you SO much! Blessings, Beth.

I love to connect with you.
