Just Be Still

Psalm 46:10  “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”
It has been a busy few days, and I’ve not had a chance to post.  That was a mistake on my part, because I read this verse, and became convicted of my lapse.
There comes a point in a day where you literally (correct usage here) cannot do anything else.  The end of the month is pretty hectic around a bank, with people calling in getting last minute payments in, yelling at you because they didn’t make a payment adjustment and are now short, and basically blaming you for their mess ups.  Yeah, people do that.  On top of that, reports have to be filed, reports have to be pulled from the investor, invoices have to be taken care of, and there are any number of things that generally have to get done “by the end of the month.”
Add to that the business of home, preparing lessons for Sunday School and for my pastor friends that still work full time jobs, preparing to preach three times a week.  This is sometimes called being too busy.  God has words of wisdom for this.
“Be still, and know that I am God:”
It is nearly impossible to really forget that God is God.  However, sometimes we forget all that God is.  Our lives get so busy we forget that God is our Father, our confidante, and provider.  He can help you through the tough times if you would ask Him.  He will fight your battles for you, if you just sit still for a minute and tell Him your troubles.  Yes, He knows them.  Yes, He sees the way through before you even tell Him what you’re going through.  However, He wants you to come to Him and tell Him your worries and your cares.  He wants you to be still.
In the midst of your busy day, don’t forget to sit down and take some time to just remember that God is not just some faraway “man upstairs,” He’s a personal God, and He wants you to talk to Him.  Show the world that even though life is hectic, God can bring you peace in the storm.  Then, He will be exalted.  Even the lost among your co-workers and acquaintances will see that there is something different.
