Over the last several years when I have talked with Jason he has talked about the busyness and noise in his life. Until the last 6 months I really hadn’t understood what that really meant. Life can be so overwhelming when you are just busy. You spend your work day running from one meeting to the next, with a phone attached to your ear, wondering when you are actually going to do your ‘work’. Once your work day ends, you go home to children who want your attention and then of course a wife who needs your attention after a long day of no interaction with adults. Then once the day ends you struggle to turn your brain off from thinking of the next day, some days I feel like the Grinch (in your grinchiest voice now) all the “Noise, Noise, Noise!”
I have confidence this is why God instructs us to stop and recognize Him.
New International Version (NIV)
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
We are told to stop and think of God, to know of His power, His grace, His love, and His mercy because that is what knowing that He is God is all about. That is why we have to find a way to be quiet for a few minutes and turn off the noise. For me this morning, it is as I sit here and write this blog but I have to find a way . Find a way today to turn off the noise off life and Be still, and know that He is God.
