Be Still - Know Godl


I hate getting behind!


I am trying to juggle too many things.  Work, health, mundane wordly duties, seeking God, worship, writing, blogging, podcasting, doing videos, keeping up my social media platforms, bible study, praying,  and just plain living.

There doesn't seem to be that many hours in the day!  Then throw some Netflix time in there just to unplug a little.  Nope, not enough hours in the day.

The word i keep getting from several people is:

Psalm 46:10  Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

If i am still i am not getting things done!  If i am not getting things done then i am not creating value.   I just want to scream!!! My flesh wants to fight this word of being still, but my spirit knows that  it is right.

Thinking about it,  we can put our life before God's will if we aren't careful.  Getting things done, even if they are ministry related,  can turn into  an idol.

I started noticing a serious lack of  progress while it seemed I was just as busy if not busier than before.  The harder i worked the less i was getting done.  Then the words I have been getting hit me hard.

Be still, and know that I am God

Be still, and know that I am God

If you have turned up the effort and the results are seriously wanting -

Maybe it is time to Be Still and Know God.

  2. Great post and you're so right! I find it hard to be still sometimes. When I'm still, my mind wanders with what I need to get done, want to do, or just randomness. Being still with God is definitely a chill I'm trying to develop.

  6. The church needs people like you man! We can get so comfortable reading the verses spoonfed and preprocessed for us through sermons, books and devotionals etc.
