“Be still, and know that I am God!”
So often in life we tend to not give God the trust and faith that He deserves. Life throws its curveballs and suddenly we tend to shrink back up and take on our problems by ourselves. I know personally when I think back on this cycle, I look back and realize time and time again how faithful God has been in my life.
He has always come through for me.
It usually comes down to trust. When the troubles on this life fall on us, do we truly believe that God has our best interests in mind? Do we truly believe that His will and plan is better than our plans for our lives?
A lot of people know the verse above but struggle with knowing how to be still and even what exactly that means. I think honestly when we hear ‘be still’, we think that means that we have to be inactive, and to us, inactivity means that our problems won’t get solved. But that is not true.
God is always working, on your behalf, behind the scenes, with your best interests in mind!
To be still means more to let go than it does to do nothing. With that definition in mind, that can open up a whole new mindset as to how we trust God. When we are still before Christ, we are not doing nothing, but we are letting go of the control that we think have over the situation, and giving back to God. Doesn’t Christ deserve our trust?
Today, be still and let go. Whatever it is you may be going through, give God the trust, respect, honor, and faith that He deserves. Let go of the control you think you have and give it back to God.
“The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
