As a parent, have you ever said these words to your child, “can you just be still?” Lord knows I have. Especially when my kids were much younger. They fidgeted and squirmed so much!
Recently, I was fidgeting and fretting and wondering what to do about a particular situation in our family. I talked to my husband. I walked around trying to figure out how to organize a way for the “idea” to work out. I feared the unknown, etc. Do you get the picture? Well, unbeknown to me, my husband was praying that God would speak to my heart to calm my fears.
As I finally got myself quieted enough to hear what the Lord was trying to tell me, I heard these words, “Be still and know that I am God.” This phrase is part of a scripture in Psalm 46:10. As I began to mediate on this scripture, “Be still and know…” started showing up everywhere. When I would log into Facebook and scroll through the posts, someone would make a comment or like Psalm 46:10.
Many times in the past, as I’ve learned, the Lord speaks and confirms His Word, so I can “get it!” In this particular situation, basically He was telling me, “sit down and just STOP!” Rest. Relax. Chill. He knows the end from the beginning.
If you are facing a challenge in your life now, I encourage you to rest, relax and chill out. God has it under control. If you were to read Psalm 46 in its entirety, you will gain a greater understanding of the God we serve. He is the God of the universe. He has every molecule, chromosome, planet, and stars synchronized in such fashion that they reconstruct themselves daily! Why then do we fret when a problem seem bigger than the Almighty?
I want to challenge you for the next several days to mediate on Psalm 46:10. Recognize the I AM.
Hope this was a blessing. You can subscribe to receive updates via email.
