Manna For Today: Monday, March 7, 2016
Psalm 46:10 – Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
Sometimes the pace of our lives causes us to miss many things of great value; the relationship wanting for love, the child in need of your attention, taking better care of yourself and so forth.
The most important negligence of our lives is breezing by our knowledge of God. The text above gives us great warning; “Be still.” Many good things can come out of periods of silence or stillness. The greatest of these is knowing that your God is God!
David said in this famous Psalm, “The Lord is…” Today, my friend, practice the disciplines of stillness and knowing, to the end that your God’s presence becomes a greater reality in your life.
Your God has and will continue to deliver you!
Today, meditate on Psalm 34: 17-20 [The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. 18 The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit. 19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all. 20 He guards all his bones; not one of them is broken].
God is indeed our refuge (comfort, relief, help and hope).
Peace and blessings!
