God wants me to stand still. Regardless of how I try to fix this situation, I can’t do anything with it. Every day I look for a possible solution, and when I can’t find one, I hear the voice of my Lord—urging me to stand still.
My flesh, however, does not want to stand still. It needs to know every detail and wants to do something. Even though I know what I need to do, the waiting patiently on my Lord is hard.
My mind screams at me every day to do something, anything to take care of this. In the depths of my heart, however, I know that God has something better planned for me than I can even imagine. This is the hard part. Just waiting on God to move.
Our flesh needs to do something—right or wrong it wants to move. The blessings come in the stillness. If I could make it happen in myself, then it wouldn’t be a blessing from the Lord. Therefore, if I want to be blessed by Him, then I need to wait on Him.
During these times, we have to realize and to know that God always does what is best for us. He can see the whole picture. We don’t know what tomorrow holds. Maybe what we want could hurt us in the long run. Walking with God takes obedience. When we decide to do whatever He puts on our hearts, even when we don’t understand, then He will bless our obedience.
So, even though it is hard, I am standing still.
Psalm 46:10 (KJV)
10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
