Be still and know

We live in a world that is driven by targets, demands, quotas and expectations. Virtually every environment I have worked in is infected by these factors, including church. None of them are bad, but our insecure hearts and need for acceptance fuel them to become behemoths that rule our waking and sleeping.

Yet in the middle of this the Lord asks us to be still. To pause and know. This does require stopping. It requires examining our time and making space. Not fitting in, working around but consciously and definitively making space to be still. Whatever your ‘today’ looks like, make space to be still and know that He is God.
