Be Still

So, may we cease in our strife and be still before the Lord. Make space for the vengeance of God and not fret when people carry out their wicked schemes.

There’s a prayer I find myself praying every day as I watch the news on television, “Lord, save us from us!” As a follower of Jesus, I desire to live by the ethics and morals of God’s word. Yet, I am daily saddened and frustrated when I witness how godly ethics are being increasingly degraded by twenty-first-century egotistic indoctrination.

Not only are we facing a complete decline in biblical morality these days but with, so-called climate change, we’re facing increased natural disasters like never before. Then there are those wars and rumours of nuclear wars. The world is shaking. “Dear God, save us from us!”

However, God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Though the ways of man violate the ethics of God’s command, though the globe may be warming and the climate changing, though superpowers rise up against one another under nuclear threat, yet our God’s unfailing love will remain, unshaken and everlasting. Our God is eternal. Underneath us are his everlasting arms. He will never abandon us and his love endures all our diverse and disastrous dilemmas.

Isaiah 54:10
“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD.

So, may we cease in our strife and be still before the Lord, making space for the vengeance of God and not fretting when people carry out their wicked schemes.

God-tracking is quietly resting in God’s command.

Get into the word of God and get the word of God into you!
Psalm 46
Deuteronomy 33:27
Psalm 136 (NIV)Psalm 37:7
