To wait in His stillness
Psalms 46:10 - Be still and know that I am God (NKJV)
What does this really mean? How do we be still? As humans, we need to move, to be active, to be doing something. If we are not, we feel that we are failures. It is a sign of the times that we live in that we have to keep moving, to be active. Our culture has brought us to that.
We no longer come aside, to wait, to listen. We need that. I need that. In these times of dealing with COVID-19, it has become so important. Families and friendships have fractured for many reasons.
How do we become still? How do I do just that? It is difficult. It is a process that we need, that I need to learn. For me, it means stilling my mind, to concentrate of God and who He is. To meditate on His Word, Who He wants to be for me. I have to set aside distractions, the antics of my dogs and cats, close my eyes, and clear my mind. It is not easy. Many times, I do fail to do that. But if we ask, He is there. His desire is for us to draw closer to Him. Part of how we do that is to sit and wait.
