Stillness

February 24, 2018

 

Stillness 

 

Maybe you can relate to waking up exhausted, snoozing that irritating alarm and then executing the first (of numerous) phone checks for the day.

 

You try to breathe a half conscious prayer, glance a verse of scripture (phone check again!) and then jump into prep for the daily grind. 

 

Your day is full...working, talking, listening, instructing, fighting, thinking, reading, looking, hoping, organising, fearing, asking, responding, buying, giving...even in the fleeting moments of inactivity, we often lack a sense of calm. Mind stimulation is constant; the notifications keep buzzing, demands keep calling, there is stuff to do (and avoid), people to see and expectations to meet. There is constant movement and interruption. And so the cycle continues. 

 

But amidst the bustle and hurry of the sometimes whirlwind that is life, there’s a timeless, holy call for stillness, rest and an inward quieting.

 

Hear God speak:

 

“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 fortress. Selah”

 

Psalms 46:10-11 ESV

 

For a minute, could you pause and reflect on this truth?

 

Just. Be. Still.

 

This inward discipline provides relief and rest for the soul because it requires a changing of perspective. Stillness brings perspective and hope because God is found in stillness.
