As I turned in for the evening last night I was reminded of this verse.
Be still, and know that I am God.
Honestly, yesterday I was more than a little preoccupied with the urgent matters of the day and at the end of the day, I was still overwhelmed with activities and deadlines and the “anxieties of life”. My “to-do” list was growing longer and longer. It felt as if I was running in sand-expending a lot of energy with only the smallest amount of progress toward the goal of the day.
The beginning verses tells me why I should just be still and trust in God in all things.
1 God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling…Psalm 46:1-3
As this day begins, let me take the time to remember and focus on the Lord who is our strength and let Him be in his proper position in my life all day long.
