Be Still

He says, "Be still, and know that I am God;

   I will be exalted among the nations,
   I will be exalted in the earth.  Psalm 46:10 (NIV)


In our age of electronic everything, is it possible to be still? Maybe not. But is it wise not to be still.


Psalm 46 reminds us that God is doing all sorts of stuff behind the scenes and he knows where we are headed (because he is there already.) The command to "be still" is one of wisdom.


When we are still, in the presence of God, we begin to see the bigger picture. My guess is that much of our mischief and troubles come from the short-sidedness that restlessness brings.


Be wise today. Sit. Put down the electronics. Shop less. Phone one less person. Leave that list of "To Do's" rest a while. Be still. Listen. Plug into the bigger picture. See how the story ends.
