Be Still…

Come and see what the Lord has done,
    the desolations he has brought on the earth.
He makes wars cease
    to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
    he burns the shields with fire
“Be still, and know I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”

The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.

 – Psalm 46:8-11

Think about that for a second. 

Alright, second is over.  Rush off to the next blog.  Run to your next meeting.  Arrive breathless, tired, frustrated because the guy in front of you was slow.  Go about your life as everything begins to blur together. 

In our lives we rarely are able to settle down and relax.  There is always something to do, something to panic about, another thing on our plate.  As my father constantly reminds us, “It’s like your trying to shove ten pounds of [stuff] into a five pound sack.”

What if God isn’t calling us to run around in panic mode?  What if all God wants us to do is stop and be still in his presence? 

Look at his word again.  “Be still, and know that I am God”

Can we stop?  Can we keep from moving?  Can we actually silence ourselves long enough to understand this? 

I dont have all the answers.  Even if I did, I wouldn’t be able to explain it.  Try it for yourself.  See what happens when you take ten, twenty, thirty minutes and be still before God. 

God Bless and PEACE
