Be Still


This morning I didn’t turn on gospel music. I just listened to the quiet. The Psalmist begins with, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” Then he invites us into an understanding in vs 8, “come and see what the Lord has done.” 

And our passage, vs 10! “He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”   

It is sad that we have been invited to be still, but haven’t done so. And now we really must. Not for what the world is doing,  but to watch what God is doing. 

In this stillness we find our peace, we find our rest, we find our creativity, we find ourselves. And we find our resolve to trust what God is doing . . a. God is with us. Oh, that’s verse 11. Be still. enough for now.

More

Aren’t you tired? Then be still and listen. God is bigger than this storm. Things are crazy but you don’t have to be crazy with it. God is so much more. Yes take precaution. And then watch what Bod is doing. enough for now.

Who Do You Say?


“When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” 
They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 
“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” 
Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God” (Matt 16:15,16)                                      

Each day we live out our lives answering that one question-  Who do you say I am? We answer by our actions toward others and ourselves. Or actions will cause us to walk more in what is truth, what is positive because he is truth, he is positive. How are you waking? “Who do you say I am?” enough for now.
