This verse is found in Psalm 46:10. Have you ever given much thought to what it can truly mean for you?
Be still. Do not always be frantically running all over the place.
Be still. Do not be fretting about things you have given to the Lord in prayer. God knows the 'big picture'.
Be still. Stop stressing over what has not happened yet and continue to believe God and pray.
Be still. Trust God has a distinct plan for your life and even though things may look bleak now they can and will change.
Be still. A bad medical diagnosis has sent you into a tail spin. Hold onto God.
Be still. The country seems in turmoil and you are worried freedom is being taken away. God is in control and has a plan.
Be still. When a hopeless situation in your family seems like it will never turn around. God knows and God cares. The end of the story has not been written yet.
Be still. When the trials of life are pressing down on you and you feel like you can not take anymore. Peace be with you. Trust in the Lord.
Be still. When you get a situation at work where you are fearful of losing your job. Jesus knows and he is with you and will walk with you.
Be still. When storms threaten and you take shelter to protect yourself and your family. God is your protector.
Be still. When friends walk out on you for no apparent reason and do not like you anymore. God is your best friend!
Be still. When ugly words have been said about you. God loves you and would never talk mean to you.
Proverbs 3:5-6 says "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him,and he will make your paths straight."
Somewhere I saw this written and unfortunately I do not know who to give credit to but "there is no wall too high for God not to be able to tear down or too twisted for Him to not be able to straighten." Lots of bad stuff may be going on with you right now but keep praying and keep believing that God will get you through and you will have victory or your family member will. Isaiah 43:2 says "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze."
PRAYER: Father comfort those today who may be going through an awful trial in their life or are fretting over a situation that is out of their hands. Help them to pray to you and give the situation to you and let it go and let you take the controls. It is so easy to worry but Lord I want to give everything to you. Help me do this. In Jesus Name, Amen!
