Be Still and Know

“Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10 NRSV)

Yeah, right! That is much easier said than done. Many times in ministry there is not time to be still. Sometimes people with whom you serve hurt you in ways that take your breath away. I’ve personally have had to deal with several people over the last few days who have attempted to steal my joy. It is during difficult times that I seem to gravitate to Psalm 46:10.

Be – Be present within your self

Be still – Listen to the gift of silence

And know – Be sure within yourself in the knowledge of your faith

I Am God – The one, Yahweh, the great I AM is the one who invites us in to the power of all encompassing love.
Once I stop and become aware of God’s presence the Spirit opens up to endless possibilities of restoration.

May you find peace in the middle of your storm.
