God is not running to the rhythm of our noise or busyness. The rhythm of God is found in the stillness, the silence, the sound of the wind, the songs of the birds, the rolling of the river. If we want to run with the rhythm of God we must make time to recalibrate often. Artificial noise, unnecessary busyness, excessive scrolling, mammon driven stewardship, and the need to make a name for ourself scratches the record and keeps us stuck in one place. But God lifts the needle ever so gently, removes the record of sin, striving, strife, and struggle, He then plays the sounds of salvation, so your soul can rest, recover and recalibrate. The desire of God is that we would align with the rhythm He releases not the fabricated rhythm we create.

Simplicity is where you find significance. Silence is where you hear the voice of affirmation that heals your soul. Solitude is the space carved out for creativity to flow. It is no wonder that we are called to a weekly Sabbath. All of the activity has wore us out, caused us to feel lonely, created a culture of addiction, and manifests in strife in the streets and homes. Have you ever asked the question where is everyone running to? What are so many people in hot pursuit of? How come all of the activity is not satisfying the longing of the soul?

Oh that we would return to the truth of the most sold book in the world. The very words of God penned on the pages of scripture that invite us into a rhythm that releases the abundance of rain so there is no famine in any area in our lives. It takes going against the grain of culture that is constantly in a hurry to go nowhere. But if you can seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness (Matt 6:33), He promises that all these things you desire will be added unto you. David said it this way, “Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life” (Psalm 23:6). What carries real significance will chase after you if you will seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness. Shalom!
