Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. — Psalm 37:6-7
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
“Chill out!” we hear heaven say to us. Come into God’s presence with dependent, yet confident, patience. But how can we? We know God will do what is right for us over the passage of time. The Bible is God’s story (HIS-story); it is the great testimony that he is always faithful to his promises, gracious in his power to redeem, and generous with his love shared with his children. So come into his presence and be willing to be still… and patient… and trusting… and hopeful!
Father, in the quietness of this moment, I consciously relax myself in your presence and place the concerns and cares of my heart before you. I trust, dear Father, that you will act redemptively in my life. I confidently place my soul, my future, and my hope in your hands. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
