Be Still and Know

        A friend of mine posted this devotional on her Facebook page and it really hit home with me when I read it.  God tells us that in order to hear His voice, we must release all of our worries into His care.  Entrust to Him everything that concerns us.  This clears the way for you to seek His face unhindered.  Let Him free you from fear that is hiding deep inside you.  Sit quietly in His presence, allowing His light to soak into you and drive out any darkness lodged within you.

        Accept each day just as it comes to you, remembering that He is sovereign over your life.  Rejoice in the day that He has made, trusting that He is abundantly present in it.  Instead of regretting or resenting the way things are, thank Him in all circumstances.  Trust Him and don't be fearful.  Thank Him and rest in His sovereignty.

        We sing a song entitled "He Will Carry You."  In it, these words are found:  "There is no problem too big God cannot solve it.  There is no mountain too tall God cannot move it.  There is no storm too dark God cannot calm it.  There is no sorrow too deep He cannot soothe it."  He is there to meet every one of our needs no matter how big or small.  We have a God who deeply loves us and wants us to be free of anything that can be a distraction and keep us from being close to Him.  Put aside all the outside noises of life and sit and listen to what God is saying to your heart.  Be still and know that He is God!  (I Peter 5:6-7; Psalm 118:24; I Thessalonians 5:18)
