“Be still- and know that I am God”….   Leave a comment

Peace be still

“Be still and know that I am  God:
I will be exalted among the nations.
I will be exalted in the earth!”
Psalms  46 : 10

It is good to spend time in the morning –
and frequently during the day-
to remember that God is in control of  our lives-
only if we will asked Him.

At this time all over the country
there is so much strife and disaster
like fires and floods-

If we are close to God daily be assured
that He is in control.
Many times when at first life seems the worst
that could happen to us,
proves later to be the best;

As this story illustrates.

The only survivor of a shipwreck
made his way ashore on a deserted island.
After building a crude hut to shelter himself
from the elements-
he prayed to God for deliverance –
He scanned the horizon each day in vain
each day in search of a passing ship.

On day, as he returned home after
searching for food,
he was horrified to find his hut in flames.
The little he had was going up in smoke!
To him the worst had happened
– Or so it appeared.

To the man’s limited vision
it was the worst thing to happen-
But to God’s infinite wisdom-
the man’s loss was for the best-
The very next day a ship arrived.
“We saw your smoke signal”.
The captain announced.

A example that reminds us –
that even when we feel abandoned –
God knows our needs- and He will
provide it even before we ask!

As we go through life facing-
problems, confusion and stress –
At such times we need to remember
God is always there for us.

Wishing you a Blessed Sabbath-
