You may be wondering why God has allowed lockdown. Maybe He is saying â€œbe stillâ€ you’re doing too much. Our lives today have become used to having constant activity: computers, mobile phones, television, email, video games. Thereâ€™s nothing wrong with any of that stuff, but the Bible tells us that we need to stop and be still so we can focus on knowing God.
Iâ€™ve found during the difficult times when facing lifeâ€™s challenges, itâ€™s easy to want to run to a friend, or talk about it with a co-worker. But at some point, you have to stop and say, â€œGod, I rest in You. I know You have me in the palm of Your hand.â€ You have to be still so you will know God and His plan for your situation.
Today, recognise your battles are spiritual battles. The people in your life arenâ€™t the source of your problems, the forces of darkness are. When you choose to be still and know that the Greater One lives on the inside of you, you are putting yourself in a position of strength and victory. Each day, take a moment to be still before God. Let His peace cover you. Let Him refresh you by His Spirit. Remember, the battles you face belong to the Lord!
â€œBe still, and know that I am God…â€ (Psalm 46:10, NIV)Â
Yahweh, I humbly come before You today. Father, I choose to be still before You. Speak to my heart so that I can know You more. Fill me with Your strength and peace so I can face today’s challenges. God, I put all my trust in You, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.Â Â
