It is amazing to consider how we are constructed. Doctors and scientists have tried to figure it all out, studying every nook and cranny, and still cannot understand how He has created. We truly are each a work of art and He is the master Artist.
That being said, we do know that we are made of many parts that are all working together. There are over 200 bones that construct our body, over half of them construct the hands and feet. We know we have a personality, emotions, interests. We have talents, habits, sensitivities. We have different areas of our lives: family, friends, work, finances, hobbies, etc. When we examine closely, our lives are full of many things.
The Psalmist says, “Let all that I am wait quietly before God.” Consider this: All that I am. ALL. Every little nook and cranny. Everything. Every part. All of you. This means nothing is held back. This means nothing is off doing something else while the rest of you waits. You are one whole body. The Psalmist speaks of a “whole body” which longs for God.
Today, as you go about your day with all your parts, seek Him with your whole body. Wait quietly for Him with all of you. This means being still before Him. Quieting everything within you. Know that when you seek Him earnestly, you will find Him.
“Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in Him.” – Psalm 62:5 [NLT]
“O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for You. My soul thirsts for You; my whole body longs for You in this parched and weary land where there is no water.” – Psalm 63:1 [NLT]
