Wait. “Be still and know that I am God.” God

Honestly, waiting on God is not easy. It never seems to build patience. It tries our patience more than anything…because “we” wait with anxious anticipation that He will deliver us from whatever ails us…it is what we are trained to do…It can be a selfish kind of waiting. And when things don’t work out like we’d hope…well…often times we get mad at God. We question our faith, our walk, we may even question His existence, especially if we see that other Christians, who may not be as “Christ like” are being blessed. God is answering their prayers, so why not mine???  Waiting on God can be about answer to prayer, but waiting on God is truly about being still and knowing that God is.photo

Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling. 

There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved;
God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
He uttered His voice, the earth melted.

The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. 

Come, behold the works of the Lord,
Who has made desolations in the earth.
He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariot in the fire.

Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!

The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge.

And when God does move…He gives us grace to accept His will, to carry on. We surrender our selfish will for His perfect will. God may not provide the answer we want, or the solution, or the outcome, but God will always make the best move that will draw us closer to Him.

“Be still and know that I AM GOD!
