"Be still and know that I am God"
I got up at 5am this morning to get ready for my work day. I sipped my coffee as I scratched out a "to do" list for the day. As I wrote down the last minute things I needed to buy and to do, I felt a nervous excitement about the trip - not anxiety, just excitement. As I wrote the list, I felt God say "Be still and know that I am God". It was such a prominent thought at that very moment that I dropped down on the notepad and wrote it down immediately. I finished the list and turned around to the refrigerator to look at the verse for the day on the "40 days of prayer to Africa". The verse was 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."
Thank you Lord for speaking to us in special ways! He cares for us and the "little stuff" in our lives.
