Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I [am] God:
We live in a world of cell phones ringing, text messages pinging, planes that whisk us from one corner of the globe to the other, satellites which circle the planet relaying news at the speed of “live;” in short, I believe we are in the time we hear about in Daniel when the angel tells him: Men will run to and fro over the face of the earth and knowledge will increase.
We are on information overload as most of us are bombarded with messages and images all day long. Many of us never sit in silence without any distractions and when and if we do we see our mind racing and thoughts interrupting one another. Yet, we are admonished to be still and know that I am God.
We can practice this anywhere if we choose to as we don’t have to head out to the desert and find a cave to be still. With practice we can be still anywhere. We can teach ourselves to retreat inwardly and wait on Him. Here’s what I mean. I can be driving on the freeways of Los Angeles and hit gridlock. I can sit in my car and complain about it or I can take a deep breath and wait on Him. I can be still in the midst of the traffic jam and begin to pray, or praise Him, thanking Him for the gift of life and the gift of salvation, through His son Jesus. I want to make it clear this is not linked in any way to Eastern meditation, like repeating a mantra over and over again. I take a deep breath and even with my eyes open, relax in Him. I can begin to pray for those who I know need it, like Gary or Hector.
His peace passes our understanding and the world can not give us this peace. There are people who are always busy, who have the TV or radio on all day and night. They never sit still and seek His face. Even in our churches the service goes from one “event” to the next, the congregation does not be still and know.
It is wonderful when we sit in His presence and rest in Him.
Jesus tells us: Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
When we are still we often find His peace is given to us.
Be still and know that I Am God…..
