“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret...”
Here’s a list for those of us who often ask, “What should I be doing about this situation?” That question implies that we ourselves have the power/authority/smarts to make an outcome we want. So, doing something means actively jumping in to change things.
But most of us have to admit that working that hard mostly just wears us out. How much better for our health if we can slow down and follow the steps this Psalm clearly lays out:
“Be still” – calming our body and mind, and breathing in His peace
“Wait patiently” – opening our ears and hearts to receive His leading
“Do not fret” – trusting, not in our efforts or those around us, but on the One who holds our lives
Not easy, maybe, but so much more effective than any works in our own strength.
