Be Still and Know…

Psalm 46_10

Be Still

 

Be Still and Know…

 

A posture I struggle with everyday is “Stillness.”

 

Stillness, what is it? Why is it so hard to do it? A lack of stillness evokes anxiousness. It is harvested from a place of busyness. Hustle, bustle, gotta go gotta go!

 

A lack of stillness can also evoke a spirit of control. It tells God and those around us that we’re too busy, got too much to do, etc, etc. and that it doesn’t matter what you do or say because I’m “doing me.” The flip side is not saying “no” to enough in order to rest and reflect. It’s ok to not be everything to everybody. We only have one body and cannot be in multiple places at once.

 

Be Still and Be Relatable

 

A lack of stillness makes us so busy to the point that what the important people in our lives need to say to us or need from us, goes unheard and unnoticed. Even the most important relationship can suffer the consequences of our busyness. Moreover, we suffer from neglecting it as well. This would be our relationship with Christ. Being too distracted and lacking the ability to be still can take our hearts and minds off of the things of God and what matters most to Him, us and our time communicating with Him (1 Peter 5:7).

 

“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.” ~ Ram Das

 

Be Still and Be Healthy

 

When we are not being still, we tell God that we control the day, so much to the point that we burn out. So busy doing and not being {still}. The body breaks under the pressure of the constant push forward. So busy, that often times we miss hearing from God.

 

“Be Still and know that I am God.” ~ Psalm 46:10

 

In Psalm 46:10 God commands us to drop our busyness, our anxiety, and fears and know that all  control over our lives belongs to Him:

 

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
   I will be exalted among the nations,
   I will be exalted in the earth.”

~ Psalm 46:10

 

Until next time…
