standstill

“Stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.” (Job 37: 14)

What’s the rush? Material life and circumstances and mental pressure would seem to give us a sense that we must always keep on moving, either to get past yesterday or to rush toward tomorrow. We tend to believe that human thought and action is what gains us momentum and wins the day.

But a pause for precious reflection is a powerful thing to do. Stand still and take in God’s glorious presence. Recognize His loving control. Feel the freedom that comes of knowing that Life is in the hands of divine wisdom—timeless, impeccable, flawless, and full of pure Love. Give up the wrestling and give God a moment of focused, devoted contemplation.

And with that sweet release to stillness, we gain a much clearer perspective. We see the colors of reality, not the blur of material life and worry and fear and stress. We naturally feel a most healing thing—gratitude.

The wondrous works of God are worthy of our consideration. Goodness, life, love, beauty are at hand. Breathe in the Truth of this. You won’t miss your life. You will find it.
