Be Still as America Waits

America is waiting the outcome of the 2020 election. Being still is foreign to most of us. There’s so much going on that can pile into our lives and easily distract. Noise assaults your ears from every side. Your to-do list is never done.

Quiet Your Heart

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!

God wants you to cultivate stillness in your life.  Quieting yourself is intentional. One way to capture it is to take your focus off the things that are not in your control. Slow down physically when you can.  Seek times of refreshment in God’s Word. Seek release from your anxieties through prayer. Your best reminder for being still is God’s reassurance that He is still in control. He is sovereign; He has a plan and a purpose, and He is working it.

Pray With Us

My Heavenly Father, thank You that I can know that just because the world around me is in chaos, it doesn’t mean I need to join in. Thank You that You have provided in Yourself a safe place…a sanctuary…to which I can retreat when I am anxious. Forgive me for trying to assume the responsibility for things I have no control over. Give me the peace promised by Jesus, “not as the world gives,” but true peace that comes from being still with You. Thank You for loving me. In Jesus’ Name,
