Be still and know that I am God...
Sometimes we just have to do that. Be still...in the presence of God...and just know that no matter what kind of news you got this week God is still God! It's sometimes a hard thing to do to just...Be still. But in reality there are things that we can't do anything about. Circumstances that we can't change. Oh...we might want to more than anything, but...we can't! I have been told so many times that...God is sovereign...God is faithful...God takes care of His own...all true statements. But sometimes it's still hard to...Be still.
and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
This verse goes so well with Psalm 46:10. After you just sit and Be still in His presence, peace...will finally come. The circumstance is still there, nothing has changed...But GOD has come in and brought peace to your troubled soul. We need those But GOD moments sometimes in our lives. I think He is always willing to give them to us, we just have to be ready to receive them from Him.
2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
What happens to us many times when we are going through unsure times in our lives...when hard things are happening? A spirit of fear...apprehension...uneasiness...comes over us. We have to remember that fear is not of God. We have to let Him take control of the situation. Through His love He restores peace to our soul and our minds...if we allow Him too.
Tonight I was talking to the Lord and just asking Him to give me some scriptures to read to help quell the uneasiness inside of me. I just really needed His peace and calm assurance to overtake my thoughts and feelings. God is so good! He gave me scriptures and something to write about. He knows that for me writing helps. He talks...I listen! God therapy for my soul. Sometimes we have holes in our souls from past pain and hurts. At times we get new holes in our souls from current pain and hurts. The good thing is...God will apply His healing touch to those holes. We just have to let Him!
So, whatever it is that you may be going through today just...
Be still and sit in His presence and let His peace come in and overtake all the stuff that you can't do anything about! Let go of the fear and let Him apply His healing touch to all the holes!
