Be still and know…

"Be still, and know that 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 46:10

 

Sometimes we get so busy in this life.  We are busy with our kids and schools.  We are busy with our jobs.  We are busy with our churches.  We are busy with our friends and with our hobbies.  We are busy, busy, busy!  Yesterday, I had a chance to walk outside in my yard.  I walked along side of my pond.  I looked out at the water.  I looked up into the trees.  I looked across my yard at the flowers beginning to bloom and blossom.  I just stood still for a few moments, taking it all in.  God is so good!!!  God was being exalted by His creation in the stillness of that moment.  In that moment, I stopped moving physically.  I stopped thinking about all the things that were going on in my life, both good and bad.  I was as still as I could possibly be, and I exalted God.  I worshiped Him in the stillness.  Sometimes we just need to stop what we are doing and be still and exalt God.  Even when we are doing good things and important things, we need to stop...we need to be still and exalt God.  It's amazing the peace that falls on us when we are still and when we are worshiping God.  His peace is greater than any peace our families, our friends, or our jobs could ever give us!  And His peace lasts for eternity!  Today, find time to be still and know...

I would love to hear your comments...
