Psalm 46:10

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

The human body was not designed to be as busy as human beings have become in modern society. We literally “run to and fro”, as the Scripture says, gallivanting around from activity to activity (Daniel 12:4). There is nothing wrong with having activities to do, but too often what happens is that we increasingly tap into the time we should be spending with the Lord, until we eventually have no time for Him.

Increasingly, Americans say they are too busy to exercise or too busy to read the Bible, and yet entertainment use is consistently on the rise. Perhaps it is not that we are too busy, but that we are mismanaging our time and our priorities are askew. Even though we become more and more busy, we are still individuals in need of the Lord’s presence.

David used the Hebrew word “raphah” in Psalm 46:10. It literally means “to stop and to cease.”  You must stop and cease from what you are doing, quieten down from all the busyness, and realize that He is  your God.

Just stop.

Slow down every once in awhile and be alone with the Lord. Try and find a moment to spend with Him, and give that time entirely to Him. The Lord knows what you are dealing with, and what is going on, but take some time to tell the Lord about those things and talk to Him about them. Just stop, be quiet and know that He is God.

Take some time today to be still and know that He is your God.

62-0609 - “Letting Off The Pressure”

Now, we don't have to hurry, and scuffle, and act like the rest of the world. Quieten down. The spirit of the world today is neurotic. But that's not the Spirit of Christ… He knowed exactly where He was standing. Oh, what a blessed assurance... Just like a baby, to lay your trust upon Him, let Him take all your cares; for He cares for you. Don't try to do anything about it. He will do it already... It's His business. As long as you're fooling with it, well, then, He can't have it. But when you turn it loose and let Him have it, He will take care of it for you. What a perfect calmness the Christian ought to have.
