Week of Oct 2nd - Be Still!

Yep I missed last week. My wife and I took a little trip to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and I did not take a computer with me and instead of updating mid-week I decided just to wait a week. If you remember the last devotion, you know we had a few difficult weeks, so it was nice to get away and a good reminder for me to refocus.

The 46th chapter of Psalm is a great reminder of how we can rely on God’s strength, but verse ten is what I want to focus on today. It reads as follows: Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted amount the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The very first part says, “Be still”. It is not just our bodies that we need to stop from going going going but mainly our minds.

As things pile up around us, we tend to worry and wonder how things will work out. We count the things that must be done and try to focus on ninety thousand things at once. Sometimes we just need to BE STILL or “cease striving” our thoughts and remind ourselves who God is. He knows our struggles; He knows we are going through, and He is with us through it all. The last part of the verse is sometimes overlooked but that is a great reminder of who God is. “He will be exalted among the heathen; he will be exalted in the earth.” Bottom line is that God’s power is unmatched.

Instead of us trying to come up with our own plan, why not trust the one who created us. When you surrender to God, He can take charge of the situation. He is your refuge in times of trouble and the one who can subdue your enemies who rise against you. Be still and know He is God !

Challenge this week: Stop worrying! Be Still and trust God!
