"Be still and Know that I am God" Psalm 46:10
I am one of those people who likes to be in control. I don't like to call myself a control freak, but I have to admit, I am. I'm not comfortable in situations over which I have no control. Sometimes I read the newspaper, or watch the news and wonder, like many generations before me, "Whatever is the world coming to?" I remember my grandmother saying that. The truth is, for all my wondering, there is only One who knows , and only One who is in control. Then I think of these words from Psalms: Be still and know that I am God. It doesn't matter what I think I know or what I think should happen. God is in control. All I have to do is worry about what God wants ME to do and He will take care of the rest. I can remain calm because He has said, "I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!" In the end it is only what God allows to happen, for His own reasons, that matters. I don't need to know. Who am I to tell God what needs to be done? He WILL be exalted through it all. That we cannot change, because He has said so.
