Being Still

There are increasingly fewer moments to just be quiet and reflect. Ambient noise has become part of our lives—noise from traffic, airplanes, radio, TV, friends, churches, phone rings, and even personal computers. But if we learn to block out the noises, we shall discover some majestic truths about our Creator and the universe. We’ll also discover some ugly truths about ourselves—our fears and unbeliefs, our self-importance and self-righteousness, our falsehoods and hypocrisy. The Bible bids us to “be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). It’s an invitation to quietly reflect and trustfully depend on God. Being still is often the moment God leads us to brokenness.—SKP
