Be Still !
Be still ! I remember saying these two words to my children so many times when they were small. I think that God says that to His children a lot also but I'm not sure we obey Him all the time.
Especially this week I have felt God calling me to "Be still" in some matters in my life. So many times we want to "do" things or "work things out" in our own way and in our own time when that may not be at all what God wants us to do! It's hard...for me anyway...to give up that feeling of being in control (although actually we never are!)and just "Be still" and try to discern what God wants us to do or which direction He wants to lead us.
Remember when Moses and the children of Israel had gotten to the edge of the Red Sea and they didn't see a way across? This is what God had Moses to say to the people-- "Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The LORD shall fight for you and ye shall hold your peace." (Exodus 14:13-14)
That should bring a peace and a calmness to the heart of every Christian! The LORD fought battles for His children back then and He still fights battles for us today!
Lord, help me today to Be Still and rest in Your promises!
