Be still, and know that I am God... (Psalm 46:10, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
So many people today find themselves caught up in the day-to-day busyness of life, driven to do more in less time. It seems people constantly strive to find ways to cram more into their already overcrowded schedules. But at the same time, God is constantly inviting us to step away from the hectic pace of life and come to Him to find rest for our souls. He invites us to be still before Him, to get quiet so we can hear His voice and set our hearts and minds at peace.
Every day, you should take time to read the scripture and meditate on Gods promises. Every time youre in the car, put on some good praise music. Make it a point to spend time with God throughout the day. When you get quiet, say, God, I love You, today. Lord, thank You for my life, my family, my dreams. Thats what is going to keep you strong. Thats whats going to keep you moving forward in the right direction.
Today, make it a point to be still before God. Quiet your mind of all the things on your agenda and just focus on Him. Let Him love you, let Him speak to your heart, and let Him fill you with peace and strength each and every day.
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your love and grace upon me. Right now, I let go of all the distractions of life and focus on You. I choose to be still, to get quiet before You and thank You for Your peace all the days of my life in Jesus name. Amen.
