Be Still and Wait

The Hebrew word used for “be still” in this verse doesn’t mean for your body to be still, it means for you to be silent. It means to silent your mind, quiet the overthinking and obsessive worrying.

To be still before the Lord means to take whatever you are stewing over and set it aside.

Stop talking about it.

Stop thinking about it.

Stop dwelling on it.

Calm your mind.

Clear your thoughts.

Create space in the silence with God and simply be still.

“Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their schemes.” Psalm 37:7 NIV

Be still and wait patiently.

What are you waiting for?

You are waiting for your perspective to shift from what other people are doing to what God wants to do.

You are shifting your focus from others “getting away” with things to how God wants you to live and what God is asking you to do.

You don’t need words, you need more of God. You need His power, His love, His perspective, His power and His direction.

Do not waste your energy fretting about it.

Your life is not meant to be lived according to what others are doing but live according to who you are in Christ.

You are a child of God, not a child of the world.

Be still and wait.
