Psalms 46: 10-11
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. 11The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
The statement in this week verse asks us to Be Still. Most of us take this verse as a time to stop, and consider our way but this verse involves a more in-depth response then our response to stop for the above verse of this chapter is dealing with trouble times. Though the earth is removed and mountains be carried in the sea, be still here means to become weak, let go, cease striving, quit trying; it truly means let go and let God.
Storms will arise up in our lives, and the storms are ragging and there seems to be no release. Be weak just don’t seem like a good idea but now is the time to be still in your marriage, be still with your children, be still with your family, friends, and foes. Be still with your jobs, be still with your health, be still in your financial state, and be still in everything that concerns you. Do not be moved by what you see, but be still in who you believe in (God). To be still is hard for most believers because we are so concerned about doing good works, we get in the way of being still; hence in the way of God. Today is a good day for us to start being still and consider before we start the day, instead of things that you wanted to do today; just be still and let God.
Spiritual serenity (being still), is our responsibility in spite of everything going wrong around us. So as you set out to fulfill your destiny in life, and it seems that it is a fight right from the beginning, be still (go weak) and let go, and let God fight your battles.
My prayer for today is God I pray that we be still so that you can do a work in us, through us, and around us. Lord cause us to be still so that you can fight our battles, for the battles that we allow you to fight we shall come out victorious, in Jesus name I pray, amen.
