Be Still

Exodus 14:14: “The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

When trouble comes, and it will, what do we do? Do we run to the phone to call our friends? Do we stop eating or overeat? Do we stay up nights and worry? Do we abuse alcohol or use other drugs?

God says he will fight for us. God doesn’t lie. What he says, he will do.

I know a godly woman who is fighting the legal system. She can fall apart, gorge on chocolate, or she can trust God. She has chosen to trust God and asks often for prayer support.

God says she needs “only to be still.” To be still means to be calm, free from noise or turbulence. That stillness is an inner and outer one.

That woman continues to work and take care of her family. She spends time with the Lord and has both an inner and outer stillness. What about you?

Dear God, help me trust you. Amen.

Application: What can you do to be still this week?
