Be still and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen; I will be exalted in the earth.
BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD
How can we be still and know who God is in today’s society?
People run around in circles with their own agenda and priority.
In order to pay our bills many have to work over forty hours a week.
Running a household and children to care for but rest is what we seek.
We are bombarded with news twenty-four hours a day.
Some people don’t even honor Sunday for a time to pray.
We spend too much time in our cars, fighting traffic going to and fro.
There is no quiet time; there are too many people to see and places to go.
How can we take time to stop and smell the flowers?
We are continually rushing and there are not enough hours.
We need to turn off the television and shut off the phone.
Shut off the radio, no IPod, stop the music, and just zone.
In the days of old the Jews fasted and prayed for three days.
They gave thanks and worshipped God giving Him praise.
Take time to go on a sabbatical, a retreat, or just try being still.
Be quiet and listen to the Lord so you can hear God’s will.
