Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, "The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you.” Luke 17:21



[Note: After one more recent period of crash and burn, I heard the Lord culminatingly say to me this morning, “You need to lie in stillness before me today.”  


It was clear He meant that literally, not metaphorically as if to continue going about normal affairs and daily routine while “meditating on Him.” Having a cold today, it was not hard to justify. And so, I lay in stillness for 8 hours, just listening, and putting away every other thought. This article is the result of that stillness. May it benefit everyone in the kingdom of God who reads it.]
