Not many of us like to just be still when things are falling apart. When it seems that the world is against us and we "need" to defend ourselves and we "need" to correct certain somebodies, God says- "Don't". The Lord says, "I got this; let Me handle it."
But we can't see what He's doing, so He must not be doing anything, so we again charge on into battle, defending, correcting, fixing. And He again says, "Don't; let Me handle it."
See, we are such fixers and think if needs to be done a certain way in a certain period of time; but God is eternal and time is irrelevant to Him. The longest wait at the store, the biggest traffic jam you've EVER been in, the longest flight delay you've ever had, is nothing in the eyes of God. So, we just need to be still and trust Him.
He has never, NOT EVER, broken a promise; He has never, NOT EVER, not been there; He has never, NOT EVER, failed to come through. The problem is us. We tend to get impatient or not like what He's doing (or not doing) so we take matters into our hands. We can't hear God very well when we're busy "doing." We need to be still so we can hear Him, so He can reassure us, so He can speak encouragement into our lives.
So, the challenge is...can you be still and let God fight for you?
The first thing Jesus said to His disciples was "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." This same charge has been given to us. We are to be made into fishers of men so others can be made into fishers of men. This is the purpose behind the Great Commission. We do this by living the Great Commandments. The Great Commandments are:
- Love the Lord your God
with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength
- Love your neighbor as yourself.
Jesus Himself said all the law and prophets rest on these two commandments.
Come visit us and learn first hand what we are about. We look forward to meeting you!
