Be Still

Yeah, I get that it’s a hard day of just plain nothing but “All gone wrong” and everything seems so misshapen and outta sorts.

Where’s the joy when the world’s in a mess and your world follows close behind in its messed up footsteps? The joy you knew yesterday took a dive into the deep and it kinda seems like it’s gone forever.

Here in this dreadful “now” moment, you’re emptied of even emotion and the pain of the heart can’t feel the hurt anymore because it’s just too weary to feel anymore. Where do you go when worries have numbed your spirit and hung your soul out to dry? Where is your refuge when your world hangs by a thread, and the thing you feared most has taken its position up front and center?

The Psalmist in Psalm 46 tells us, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.”

Beautiful soul, when all is lost, the Psalmist goes on to bring words of hope to the reader,

“There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the Holy Place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at the break of day…Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Life happens! It’s just a long time to hold it all together, isn’t it? To do it right? To make it work? But there is comfort for your crumpled spirit and your misshapen world. If you make our Sovereign God your fortress, He’s in charge and He will be exalted in your situation and in your circumstances if you rest “Still” in Him and know that He is sovereign overall. Rest then today ~ right now ~ you who are broken, and in your brokenness just be still in Him.

“Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Psalm 46:10

Little Thoughts For Big Days

Are you in the rat race? It’s a dog eat dog world out there with wars and fightings among the nations and the countries but also within ourselves there are grumblings and gossip and wars; ~ within our relationships and within our own circles of influence life is bitter and unsettled. God’s direct command to His people was to “Be Still” ~ just be still and know Him! Just cease with the busyness and the worries, the jealousies and the schemes and the strivings to get ahead – to get more! Just stop it and rest! Find peace in Him! Let it go! Slow the activities of the mind and just bask in His omnipotence and in His omnipresence. Exalt Him! Trust Him and let Him mend your brokenness, cradle you in his watch care and in His grace care, because He, the Lord of Hosts ~ The Sovereign One who knows the end from the beginning in this world and yours is powerful and knows you and is with you and will take your concerns and fight your battles if only you hand them over in complete surrender. Let’s take Him out of the box we so easily confine Him to, and let Him fix it and do what he does best!

Psalm 46: 10
“Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold.”
