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
During the snowstorm that we had in the beginning of the week allow me sometime to reflect on the scripture in the book of Psalm to “Be Still.”
Dusk settles on a chilly winter night. A gray fog hovers and snow begins to fall: cold, blustering now, the kind that sticks. The snow keeps coming until you can barely see one hundred feet in front you. In the woods, it’s quiet, all you can hear is the gentle wind, and all you can see is snow and trees. A pure white blanket of snow restores the earth, and as it falls, it restores you.
Sometimes we have to get outside of the noise and chaos of our own four walls. We have to step out into the snow, or the sun, or the breeze. We have to get alone, get silent, and clear the clutter from our minds and hearts as we stand in God’s natural sanctuary.
There is so much power in the stillness of knowing God as you stand serene in the world He created. The busyness of your life will alwaysbe there, but never forget to take the moments you can, to stop and know your God. In those moments, you will find refreshment and strength to take on whatever will come next.
