“Be still” oh my soul. What child of God has not heard and felt this command come to the heart at one time or another? So often, this word from our Father comes in time of great trouble and distress. It’s a difficult command: what? Sit still and do nothing?
Our Father does not ask us to sit still in time of trouble and do nothing. The rest of the command continues: “and know that I am God.” This knowledge comes through active, determined thinking and contemplation, ESPECIALLY in difficult, trying times.
“Lord, teach me, I pray, to KNOW that You are truly God, at all times, in all seasons, in every situation. Help me, Lord God, to train my heart to be able to quietly trust You in every circumstance. In Jesus Name.”
In Proverbs 16:32, our Father states that controlling our spirit is a greater achievement in His sight than any worldly conquest….. and we can move towards this greatness in His sight today!!
