Be still and know that I am God (Psalm 46:10a)
I was thinking of this verse when I was in the shower. It is one of my favorites. To me, it means that spending time with God is as easy as meditating on him. To feel God’s presence, we need to relax. When many things are on my mind, I feel frustrated and far from God. My mind runs in so many directions, I am surprised that it has not hit a wall. God helped me realize that resting in him is just as important. Any day or moment can be a Sabbath. I was so busy journaling and reading the Bible that I forgot this. Psalm 46: 10a in the Contemporary English Version says it best Calm down and learn that I am God. Calm down is the key phrase for me because I get nervous. Sometimes it best to sit back and admire God for who he is. Sitting in silence helps me get back in tune with God and be more sensitive to the Spirit.
The world says keep busy as much as possible Never let any moment go to waste. You say rest and savor the day.
Help me to remember that resting in you is just as important as any other activity that I can do with you. Please help me to take things one day at a time.
