Be still, and know that I am God. (Psalm 46:10)
This verse is so powerful and so appropriate for our week dedicated to surrendering control of our lives to the Lord that I don’t want to be excessively wordy. Let me just say that I struggle with the idea of being still and “wasting time” with God. If it was up to me, I’d not only choose the way I pray and the words I use, but I would control God’s response as well.
At some point, I need to stop trying to control every area of my life, including the way I pray, and surrender to God. I am working on that today. It begins with being still and recognizing that God is God and I am not. I hope you’ll join me.
Let not your heart be troubled!
