“Surrender your anxiety! Be silent and stop your striving and you will see that I am God. I am the God above all the nations, and I will be exalted throughout the whole earth.” (Psalms 46: 10, the Passion Translation)
It isn’t about fighting. It’s about surrendering. When we feel like the challenges are too large or the world or time is moving too fast, we have a recourse. We have a solution that doesn’t add to the confusion and fear or exhaust us or our resources.
We can release all that in a silent pause. We can give ourselves permission to let the worries go, to relinquish our hold on what feels like our justifiable doubt, and to feel the peace that brings.
This isn’t doing nothing or ignoring issues. It is actively praising God, trusting good. It is letting go of ego and allowing the intelligence, wisdom, control of the divine to show us what is really true, and to reveal a way of healing, progress, and satisfaction.
God is mighty, but He can be realized in the quiet. A humble moment of surrender gives us over to the winning side, God’s side, where anguish is conquered naturally and necessarily by Love.
