As I have been going through this season of awakening in Christ and realizing how much harm I was doing to myself and those I influence by trying to control EVERYTHING. The one thing I keep sensing from God is the simply BE STILL. Ha, for me, there is NOTHING simple about being still. It’s scary for me to be still. I’m so used to being busy and on the move, I’ve never exercised that part of my brain and therefore need to work REALLY hard at being still. The true meaning of the passage below is to: “cease striving” or “stop” and more specifically in this context “stop fighting,” which is directed toward the enemies of the people of God.
Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
So, What… for This Week?
This week, mediate on this verse for yourself and acknowledge who your God is! Consider interpreting this command more like: ‘snap out of it,’ ‘wake up,’ ‘stop fearing’. Take time out of your day to meditate on this Scripture and be silent with listening ears toward God and see what He says!
