Be StillSo there’s a lot of STUFF going on in my life right now. Work is hectic, church is going through a transition, and then there’s my writing. And I do like to stay on top of everything!
But as I’ve prayed lately, I keep getting a clear message. And it’s “Be Still.” God totally has this all in hand. He has a plan and it’s underway. All I need to do is . . . be still.
In Bible study last night we covered the perfect verse. Exodus 14:14 “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
Oh. Well. But I was ready to DO something. You know, jump in and make things better, make things right. And He wants me to . . . be still. But God, I could be so useful!
Humph. And here I thought the challenge would be doing what God asked. Turns out not doing can be really hard, too.
How about you? Are you a doer? A fixer? Someone who jumps in to make sure everything goes the way it’s supposed to? Talk to me and tell me about. Maybe we can form an impromptu Be Still Support Group.
Psalm 37:7 -“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.”
Psalm 46:10 – “He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
