Still

Written by Tyson Herald on . Posted in WBC Blog

Our theme verse for February has been Exodus 14:13-14: Moses answered the people,  “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

The art of being still. It’s something we’ve lost as a culture. It’s something I’ve lost as a person. If God really is sovereign, really in control, than the best thing we can do is be still and trust in God. Obviously, easier said than done.

I’m trying to trust God, let Him fight for me and my circumstances. What about you? Have you tried it?

It frees us from an entire set of griefs and worries we were never meant to carry. It reminds me of what Jesus told  his followers, “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest….For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

One of my favorite hymns is Be Still My Soul. Take a moment to be still before God. When you’re done take a listen to this song as a reminder of our verse for the month of February.

KING of complexity

Written by Tyson Herald on . Posted in WBC Blog

I’m so thankful that our God is the King of complexity. Not only in the way in which our world works but also how He works. Lately, I’ve been studying the faithfulness of God. What has struck me most is God’s timing. He never takes the simple way, the way that makes the most sense. No, as a matter of fact He usually shows up in a way in which no one else could. In a way that seems complex to us but yet so simple for Him. 

Daniel 3 records the story of Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego and the fiery furnace. These men followed their leader as far as they could until he asked them to break God’s law. They chose to disobey their leader and were sent to the furnace for it. God could have rescued them before they ever hit the flames, but He didn’t. Instead, God waited till all the important people of Babylon were around to see Him show up. He rescued Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego in a way none of them would have expected. It made such an impact on King Nebuchadnezzar that he says “no other god can save in this way.” vs. 29 

What seems like God waiting till the last minute is actually His perfect plan coming together. I don’t know where you are right now but know that God is in control even when it doesn’t look like it.
