Be still!

"Be still and know that I am God."
Usually, the speed of life does not allow for rest stops. 
"Be still and know that I am God."
What?!  I don't have time to be still!  Don't you know what this life is like?!  I need a faster car...a faster iPhone...a faster internet connection...a faster way to get my customers' order to them!
I can't "Be still!"

O when will I obey the words,
Even the words in red?
He's proven to me countless times
that He'll do what He said!
"But God, I need it yesterday...
But God, they want it NOW!
Yet Your command remains 'Be still-
and behold just how!'"

"O teach me how to balance this life
with the one You give.
I know if I obey Your time
much richer will I live!
I won't be in a panic, rushing
here and rushing there;
I won't be 'spinning wheels' for I
will do a BETTER share!"

"Be still and know..."  so simply said
but not so simply done!
It takes a major discipline-
and that is never fun!
It does get easier, however,
more often in our walk-
making God's will daily life
and not just Sunday talk.

"Be still and know..." 

It MUST be a part of that daily life, regardless of its speed.  That "sweet hour of prayer."  A WHOLE HOUR?!  Are you kidding?!! 
No matter what speed this life may be, there is ALWAYS time to spend with God, or else He would not have commanded us to "Be still."  Psalm 46:10
