Be still!

“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.
