Storms intrigue me. When clouds roll in and light is muted by dark, I know that somethin is a-brewin. In fact, just last night I watched lightening be answered by thunder against the backdrop of rain. The flash begins the countdown to the boom. When the boom happens, the coffers of my house shake and the cackling of the bolt wake my children.
How often do flashes of trouble streak across our lives and are answered by the thunder of stress? Sometimes, too often. That is when God steps in and tells the flash, tells the boom, “BE STILL.” Be still, Stress – know that God can handle the thunder. Be still, Worry – know that God can calm the flash. Be still, my anxious heart – know that God is the god of tomorrow, today and yesterday and that He holds the weathered me in the palm of His hand.
“He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God'” – Psalm 46:10
