Be Still

We tend to live our lives as if we are in complete control and possess influence over all of our circumstances. But then, life happens. Unexpected events remind us of a profound truth: we are not in control. We are not the masters of our destiny, as we often believe ourselves to be. This realization can shake us to our core, leaving us vulnerable and uncertain.

Yet, it is in these moments of vulnerability that God's voice whispers to us, gently yet powerfully: "Be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:11). This simple, profound command invites us to pause, to release our grip on the reins of control, and to recognize the presence and power of God in our lives.

Friends, our human nature drives us to want to control every aspect of our lives, but this only leads to exhaustion and disappointment. Our bodies and souls were not designed to bear the weight of the world. The wisdom found in Proverbs reminds us that while we may plan our course, it is the Lord who establishes our steps.

God has a unique plan for each of our lives, a plan to prosper us and not to harm us, a plan to give us hope and a future. But for His plan to unfold, we must learn to trust Him, to surrender our will and embrace His.

In the moments when you feel overwhelmed, when the noise of the world drowns out peace, remember to "be still." In the stillness, in the quiet moments of surrender, that's where we truly come to know that He is God. That's where we find our true strength, and that's where we see the beauty of God's plan unfold in our lives.
