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.
