Be still, and know that I am God... (Psalm 46:10, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
When God created Adam, He put him in the Garden of Eden, a very quiet, peaceful, tranquil place. Thats where God met him and spoke with him, in a place of peace.
Todays life can be very noisy. If we allow it, all of us can live stressed, uptight, in a hurry and on edge. In the midst of the whirlwind of activity going on around us, weve got to learn to not let the busyness, the frustration and stress get on the inside of us. It may be hectic on the outside, but deep down in your spirit, you can be at rest because you know God has you in the palm of His hand.
Maybe you have been worried for a long time or stressed because a dream hasnt come to pass or upset over a challenge youre dealing with. Just like God met Adam at a place of peace, God is saying, There may be trouble all around, but I am calling you to a place of peace. Be still and know that I am God. Come to Me, and I will give you wisdom, strength and grace for everything you face.
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for drawing me to the place of peace. I choose to be still. I choose to find rest in You. I choose to trust You knowing that my days are ordered by You in Jesus name. Amen.
