The re-released Special Author’s Edition of Shh! God is Trying to Tell Your Something has been updated to reflect the tumultuous nature of our current times and to remind readers that God is in control

For those looking for comfort and assurance in these uncertain times, Shh! God Is Trying to Tell You Something serves as an important reminder to stop, breathe, and listen. In the 2020 re-release of her 2014 devotional, author and minister Shearon Hurst offers sage advice grounded in scripture on the importance of embracing silence in order to receive God’s words of encouragement.

The revised book has been edited and updated in light of the global uncertainties that have impacted people across the globe in 2020. The daily devotional contains words to inspire readers with the messages the Lord has to share with them and reinvigorate their faith in a time when it may be faltering. 

“In the face of this continuing global pandemic, economic upheaval, and political unease and uncertainty, it’s more important than ever to remind ourselves that God is in control,” said Shearon. “My hope in re-issuing this important devotional at this particular moment is that it serves as a resource to help comfort people in these trying times by deepening their connections to their faith and the Lord.”

Shh! God is Trying to Tell You Something has gained praise from readers and faith leaders alike:

In a voice that is divinely inspired, Shearon writes a daily love letter from God, cites spot‐on Scriptures, and then leaves room for readers to write how they can become better obedient to His word and thereby receive the blessings that were designed just for them. Two thumbs up for this inspiring work––followed by both hands held high in praise of the Lord Jesus Christ.”–Tom Siebert of Christian Editor Connection.

TRUST ME, THE STORM WILL END

I come unto you this day to heal, restore, and to bring you closer to My presence. It does not matter how the storm may rage around you; I am The One who is always in control. You must trust Me to the end no matter how hard the storms are raging in your life. Always remember, the trial you are going through; this thing that has come to test your faith will end.

My child, trust Me, the storm you are facing will end. You must be ready to go on trusting even unto the last hour. I will make a way when you cannot see your way. I want you to rely on Me alone. Trust in My Spirit, not in what you see. Trust; fear not, and know I am able to do what I promised.

What is it, you fear? Do not listen to what others are telling you. Listen only to My voice, only My voice. Stand on what you know to be true. Do you remember the last miracle I performed in your life? How you marveled at what I did? You said, “I can’t believe Jesus did that.” But I did, did not I? My Child, I will do it again. I took what you saw as impossible and made it possible. So, why do you wonder if I am able to provide?

Oh, My child, I say unto you this day, please take time to reflect upon the blessings of the past, and do not worry. I have spoken unto the storms and commanded them to cease! That storm shall be no more. I am pouring forth upon you a sweet and gentle rain; it shall renew, strengthen, and breathe new life into you. Embrace what I am doing; do not resist. I need you to trust Me until the end. I will provide; haven’t I always provided for you? Trust Me the storm will end.

Read and Meditate on His Word:


 Isa 43:2  When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. 

Joh 14:18  I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 

Psa. 9:10  And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

Psa. 56:3-4  Even when I am afraid, I still trust you. I praise the word of God. I trust God. I am not afraid. What can mere flesh and blood do to me?

2Co 4:16-17  That is why we are not discouraged. Though outwardly we are wearing out, inwardly we are renewed day by day. Our suffering is light and temporary and is producing for us an eternal glory that is greater than anything we can imagine.

I AM ABLE TO GIVE YOU MORE THAN THIS

There is so much bad news in the world right now that sometimes you may feel it’s hard to hold onto the joy that God has given you. If you have been feeling discouraged and you are wondering when the Lord is going to do something in your life, then I pray this message will bless you.  It is time to put aside the grave clothes and stand up in the authority that God has given to you.

Not a day will go by when you won’t make a mistake, but it is not your perfection that sets you apart.  It is your heart for the Lord that sets you apart.  If you continue to look at your mistakes or the pressures around you, the enemy will continue to have you right where he wants you, dead and buried.

Allow these words to minister to your heart:

I have called you to stand high above your circumstances.  I called you to stand on top of your mountains not lie buried beneath them. I want you to stand on your mountain and shout out that “I will overcome, for My God is able to give Me much more than this.  You don’t need to stand up in your own strength to try and overcome your situation.  You have Me, your covenant partner, and I will supply the strength you need.  Together in My name, in My power, the impossible will be done.

It doesn’t matter how you feel.  It doesn’t matter what you are going through right now, I want you to know this is not the end of you.  Say it, “THIS IS NOT THE END OF ME”.  Take My hand and put your trust in Me, and walk into your new beginning.  Don’t worry about the things you see with your eyes.  Don’t worry about the things coming against you.  Put your trust completely in Me, and believe I am able to give you much more than this.

When you feel your way has gotten too hard, and you can’t take another step, lean on Me.  I will pick you up and carry you through. You’re a little weary right, aren’t you? Go ahead, lean on Me for strength.  Let Me do what you cannot do.  I will pull you out of the fire and blow a calming breeze over your life, and put your feet on a steady path.  I am able to give you much more than this.  So, no matter what your situation is right now, I want you to know this one thing, I love you and I will never leave you.  I have life more abundantly planned for you.

Shake off those grave clothes and the things that weigh you down.  Grab hold of My hand and allow My joy to come into your life.  Once you allow that to happen, the light will shine and you will know that I can deliver you.  You will know I am able to do the impossible. You will know that I am able to restore all that you have lost, and you will know that I am able to give you much more than this.  

Read and Meditate on His Word:


2Ch 25:9  And Amaziah said to the man of God, But what shall we do for the hundred talents which I have given to the army of Israel? And the man of God answered, The LORD is able to give thee much more than this.

John 10:10  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Eph 3:20  Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

HAVE AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit. Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle. Psa. 28:1-2

 When things aren’t going the way we hoped they would, the enemy will do all he can to make us ungrateful. We should endeavor to always have a grateful and thankful heart in everything. For the atmosphere and attitude of thanksgiving is essential for the working of the power of the Holy Spirit.

All the onslaughts of the enemy were designed for one purpose and one purpose only, to take away your grateful and thankful heart to God and replace it with a heart of dissatisfaction and complaint. Don’t allow the enemy to cause you to focus so much attention on the bad things that you neglect to give the Lord thanks for the many things He has already given you. Until you can give thanks while in your present circumstances, your circumstances will never change. You must change your attitude first before your circumstances change. You must have an attitude of gratitude for the small things the Lord has blessed you with before He blesses you with greater things.

No matter what is going on in your life this day, offer the Lord a sacrifice of praise. It’s the key which will bring power and grace to all your circumstances. It is the only way to enter the road of grace and favor. When you find it hard to hold fast to our confession of faith; just tell Him, “Lord, I believe, help my unbelief,” then lean on the Lord for the strength you need. The Lord will help you, and He will see you through.  He will restore your joy and cause you to sing praises to His name. Whatever situation you find yourself in this day, give thanks to the Lord for what He has provided. Be thankful for the provisions you have this day. Be thankful in everything, for this is the will of the Lord.

READ AND MEDITATE ON HIS WORD


 1Th.5:18  In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Psa. 100:4  Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise; be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

Psa.118:1  O give thanks to Jehovah; for He is good; because His mercy endures forever.

Psa. 118:29  Oh give thanks to Jehovah; for He is good; for His mercy endures forever.

Heb. 12:28  Therefore, we must be thankful that we have a kingdom that cannot be shaken. Because we are thankful, we must serve God with fear and awe in a way that pleases him.

HOLD ONTO THE PROMISES, NOT THE PAIN

Hab. 2:3  For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. 

Hold onto the promise I gave you.  Keep the vision before you. Hold onto your confession of faith, which you made when I spoke the promises over your life. This test of endurance, this trial of your faith is SPECIFIC!  It is happening in response to your prayers; therefore, hold onto the promise and not the pain.  Release the pain, cast it onto Me, and press forward.

Don’t give up! Don’t quit! Don’t throw the towel in, just because it hasn’t come to pass. Know this one thing, I am aware of what you are going through, and you need the patience to endure faithfully to the end.  Victory is near!

Remember My servant Joseph?  Let’s talk about Joseph for a minute. 

I gave Joseph many dreams and visions; however, he was not ready to receive them. Nevertheless, he knew that I was with him and that alone enabled him to thrive in captivity and endure to experience His destiny! He chose to hold the promise and not the pain. Oh, his pain was real and your pain is real; however, the promise is of a greater reality.
