Be still and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth.
Today's reading from Jesus Calling was stunning:
"Much, much stress results from your wanting to make things happen before their times have come. One of the main ways I assert my sovereignty is in the timing of events. if you want to stay close to me and do things my way, ask me to show you the path forward moment by moment. Instead of dashing headlong toward toward your goal, let me set the pace. Slow down and enjoy the journey in My Presence."
One of 2013 life lessons for me was to stop (usually after I hit a wall) and pray, trusting God to direct my paths. When I think I have a great idea or a plan, step back, wait a minute, and pray. Breathe.
If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that. James 4:15
It is when you initiate that you step away from Me.
Thus this year of 2014, I long to be still, breathe and know that He is God.
It is the Lord's will that I am alive today. I choose life.
