“Be still and know that I am God” (Psalms 46:10) is a real challenge in a modern age that conspires against it. Mystery, awareness of a spiritual world, even a few moments of quiet do not come naturally in our hectic, buzzing world. Before prayer becomes “something I say”, it must first be many “things I don’t say”. Fear. Resentment. Ambition. As I grow quiet before the Lord, I realize that none of them are the things I really want to say to the Lord. As I wait before Him, better words come. Praise. Peace. Gratitude. Requests for His help–coupled with the faith to believe that He will answer. Maybe I am unique in this, but when I am still, my words change. I am praying for you today. I am asking God to give you a few moments to be still.
