Be still.....

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

I hate being still
. I always have had to be doing something. Yes I know I need patience and maybe some self control but ever since I was a toddler I didn’t like being still. As an adult now I’m finding I still don’t like being still. But I do remember when I was still I was able to observe and learn. When I was younger I did move around a lot but I was a shy kid (I know, really weird combination) But I would just sit back and watch people. Right now in my life God is calling me to that place but instead of looking at others and observing them he wants be to look to him and observe his ways and learn from him. He is wanting me to “Be still and know HE IS GOD

But like my toddler years I’m wanting to say what’s on my mind and what I feel but God is saying for me to be still right now. Doesn’t that suck especially when you already have what you’re going to say all played out in your mind??? So now going to the subject of the MIND (dun dun dun) isn’t it crazy how so many different scenarios take place in the mind??? This happens to me especially when I’m just trying to be still and listen to Gods voice. I become quiet but then the many what if’s go through my mind. It so tiring, it makes me just feel wore out and drained. That’s not what God wants that’s not his plan. I have a lot of decisions to make like any other kid who is becoming an adult. But these decisions are pivotal to my future and destiny. I don’t want to make rash decisions but sometimes it almost just feels easier to throw n the towel and just do what will get you by. That also is not Gods plan and I am not speaking from a place of being there and knowing everything because I’m in the midst of this and if you were to ask me what I’m going to do or say I would not answer you because I’m being still ha-ha no I’m joking but for real, I don’t have some deep revelation or solution for you. I just know that I am going to be still and know that he is my God and that he will be my refuge in times of trouble!!!

So as your world crumbles around you, so you think. The call from Scripture is this: don’t flinch in faith in God. Stand still — not because of a self-made confidence, not because you are the most composed person in the face of disaster, not because “you’ve seen it all.” Be still because of what you know about God. It is “God’s past” that provides calm for “our future.” Know that he is God! Know it, not merely intellectually, but practically, spiritually, and emotionally. He is your God. He is the ruler of kingdoms of this earth and the all-powerful Creator of the Universe.
