“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak”
Ecclesiastes 3: 1&7

Your silence in God gives you His glory and power to destroy your enemies and cast out demons. The time to be silent is the period when you have done the best you can and now wait patiently for good results. You shouldn’t be silent all your life; there is time for everything: a time to speak, heal, cast away stones and to be silent. The time to be silent is the time to stand still with God. God commanded us to always stand still with Him even in times of trouble.
“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth”
Psalm 46: 10

When you truly stand still with God, He will use His power to destroy the plan of the enemy upon your life, business, family, destiny, marriage and your country. God is not a man that He should leave you in times of difficulty; He is always there in times of need.
“The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.”
Psalms 46: 11
“And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever

Exodus 14: 13

When you are quiet, you are linking your faith silently with the faith of God. When you link your faith together with God, He becomes your strength and gives you divine peace into your spirit, soul and body especially in times of trouble.
“For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not”
Isaiah 30: 15
“Therefore shall the strong people glorify thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear thee”

Isaiah 25: 3
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee”

Isaiah 26: 3

You can’t spiritually increase yourself with God by being worried unnecessarily. Believe in your redeemer, He is always there when you need Him. Giving thanks to God comes first before receiving a miracle. Your thanksgiving to God makes your request noticable to Him.
“Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus”
Philippians 4: 6-7

The word of God is quick, powerful and sharper than any kind of weapon. It is the power to overcome and conquer any form of challenge you come in contact with.
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”
Hebrews 4: 12

When you stand still and become silent in God, He will destroy the plan of the enemy upon you. He will dismantle every form of recession that the enemy used in tying you down. Anytime you take it as a responsibility to stand still with God, you become exposed to divine establishment. A stand still man never lacks anything from God.
