It’s Sunday once again! One of the worship songs we will be singing at church later is entitled “Still”, the main point of which comes from Psalm 46:10: “Be still; and know that I am God.” (NIV)
In a post I wrote last week about risks, faith and rewards, I told you about my husband’s situation for the past few months. It was not easy to be waiting and waiting for a company’s call and not get it for weeks. My husband told me in March that he feels that God is assuring him and telling him to be patient based on the verses he read. But since it had been weeks without a call, it was hard to be patient and not give up.
Still we continued to pray and just lift it all up to God. We knew there was nothing we can do to make it happen. But if God wills it, then it will happen. We just had to be still — to have that peace — and remember that He is God and that He holds our lives in His hands.
So did he get the job? Yes he did!
We have had several experiences where the Lord has provided for our needs and has even given us some extras on the side. And for that we are thankful. I had such a hard time keeping myself from crying during last week’s worship because I was just so overwhelmed by His goodness!
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way.” Psalm 46:1-2a (NIV)
Maybe you’re in that kind of situation right now. I don’t know, but God knows. We don’t know what will happen, but I encourage you to pray and trust that He knows what’s best for us. I leave you with the lyrics (and a video) to the song in the hopes that you will somehow be encouraged for today.
Hide me now under Your wings
Cover me within Your mighty hand
When the oceans rise and thunders roar
I will soar with You above the storm
Father, You are king over the flood
I will be still, know You are God
Find rest my soul in Christ alone
Know His power in quietness and trust
