Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!
Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!
Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.
For the evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait for the LORD shall inherit the land.
“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”
I was looking for songs for this Sunday, and I wasn’t really sure what to pick.
Usually, I’ll hear a song during the week that gives me some inspiration, but this wasn’t one of those weeks.
There were times this week that I felt a bit of anxiousness; however, whenever it got bad, I felt a wave of peace. I’ve experienced it before, but I can’t really explain it. It is like a switch is turned off and everything calms.
Being still was something I had to put into practice, but God’s peace enabled it.
So…this song seems to fit my week.
I hope your week reminded you of how God is present in our anxiousness, and that He is faithful to provide His peace…after all, He does want us to “be still,” so that we can focus on Him and know He is at work.
If you all could pray about my energy level and ability to get my work done (in addition to getting my house together to sell), I would appreciate it.
