In a world that’s going ninety to nothing how can we possibly “be still”?
We have this to do and this to do and this to do. Our calendars – and our kids’ calendars – are basically out of control.
With the hustle and the bustle comes a mind that just can’t chill. Trust me – I live in that world. Thoughts of what do I need to do next play on repeat in my mind.
So, how do we be still? As I began to look at different Bible verses trying to find the answer to this question, I quickly realized that most verses about being still were also about being anxious.
So there is a cause and an effect.
When we are anxious we cannot be still.
They will all wrestle with that very stillness that they so desperately long for if they are not “stayed on the Lord”.
▪️We need to stay in the word.
▪️We need to stay prayed up.
▪️We need to intentionally find a quiet place.
▪️We need to praise and worship.
▪️We need to 100% trust in God.
How do we get still? We need to fix our eyes on Jesus and only Jesus.
“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.”Isaiah 26:3
