"Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world." Psalm 46:10
Earlier this month we went to a couple Christian Conferences and these two tees sold like hotcakes. In fact, all our Be Still items did. Beanies and sweatshirts included. I was talking to my sister about this and she sent a few notes from a sermon at her church called "Simplify". I found it super interesting and wanted to share.
"75%-90% of all doctor appointments can be directly linked back to stress (webMD). Our culture needs to slow down."
She continues to write her thoughts, " maybe that's why a large majority of your sales are with your Be Still product. We desperately need to hear those words and be reminded more than ever."
I continued to think about her thoughts and how right she was. We do need this constant reminder put before us (or on us) to slow down, Be Still. But might I add... we need to also Know. Know what? Know that he is God.
So often we are busy-busy-busy trying to control life, trying to reel in the crazy, protect our kids from this upside down world... trying to manage everything in life. But what we really need to do is Be Still and TO KNOW that He is God. He. Is. God. Not us. We forget to bring God into our life because we are so busy reassuring ourselves that "we got this." The reality is. We don't. We can't. We simply aren't created to manage it all. But we are created to worship and walk along side a God who can.
Is there someone you know who needs this reminder? Do you need this reminder? Put forth reminders to Be Still with God. To know know that He is God. He wants to give us rest from our burdens. Allow him to walk along side you. Better yet, let Him take the lead.
