Psalm 46:10“B…


Psalm 46:10
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” 

As a child, I was told on more than one occasion to “be still.”  Later, as a mother, I admonished my son to “be still.”  And now, as I read the Scriptures, I am cautioned once again to, “be still.”

Being still is something we do not do very well.  As children, we simply have too much energy to be still for very long.  As adults, there is a distinct lack of comfort in being still.  We believe we are missing something if we are not on the move, when in fact we are in danger of missing the most important thing if we fail to be still, and that is communion with God. 

David understood how to be still and connect with his God. From the highs to the lows, from castles to caves, David learned to seek God where He could be found.  David knew that God was his shepherd, and David understood both what it meant to be a shepherd, and what it meant to be shepherded.  

Have you learned to be still before the Lord, waiting on Him and allowing Him to restore your soul?  Be still, and know that He is God, and He is holy, holy, holy.

Prayer:  Dear Father, I have too often rushed headlong into plans and schemes and instead of asking for your direction, hoped you would bless my efforts because I am your child.  Forgive me for my impatience and for failing to wait on you.  May I learn what it means to be still before you.  Amen
