"Be Still and Know that I Am God"
God does not say, "Be still" from far away lofty heights
but He says "Be still"
to the one He holds in His hand.
"I have covered you with the shadow of My hand"
It is hard in our busy, stressful lives, when we are surrounded
by the noisy bustle around us, to stop and hear those
"Be still and know that I am God"
The very words themselves speak peace into my soul,
like the calming voice of a mother to her crying child, held close to her breast.
How easy it is to 'be still' when we feel safe
and protected and loved,
that is the place that is ours, in the hollow of His hand.
Are you troubled ?
Are you sorrowing ?
Are you anxious?
Are you overwelmed with busy-ness?
Take time today to find some quiet moments
and a quiet place
where you can listen for and hear
the voice of God,
speaking peace to you alone.
"Father, I pray for every person, whose eyes fall on these words that you would speak to their hearts these words of peace. May they know that you alone are God, that you alone can calm the troubled seas .
May they know the security of your loving Hand today. Amen"
