~ "Be still..."

"Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth." (Ps 46:10)

One of my favorite verses...BE STILL!  How often are we fidgety when it comes to waiting for what we want, what we need -- waiting, always waiting!  Instant gratification has no place in God's Word.  It is in his time, and only in his time, that blessings come.

The bigger picture in today's world is that of hunger, war and blatant sin (not necessarily in that order).  There have always been wars.  They are inevitable.  There is always a "good" reason for them (at least from those directly involved in them) (I'm not going to discuss the US involvement or non-involvement in any  wars or conflicts because that is not the purpose of this post.)

Insomuch as wars are inevitable, so is God's final victory.  When that day comes, we will all stand STILL before our Creator.  We will honor his power and his majesty.  Will will honor HIM!  It's been said that "practice makes perfect" - so why not be "still" now and take the time each day to exalt God!
