"Be still and know that I am God." Strange words indeed
to a generation raised on fast food and "sound bite" news. "Be still."
Many people are trying to inject more activities into
an already over-crowded schedule. A few are trying to slow down the
pace of a frantic life, but when was the last time you heard of someone
Even our churches today have seemed to adopt this hectic
pace. In so doing, we have created a hybrid Christian of a sort.
Christians who know a great deal about God, but know very little of God.
Christians to whom the level at which the Holy Spirit is working is directly
proportional to the amount of emotion evoked. Christians who have
drowned out God's "still, small voice" with the raucous din of their search
for Him. A generation of Christians growing ever more frantic in
their search for a God who seems to grow ever more distant. A generation
of Christians who must soon learn the value of "being still" or risk forever
extinguishing God's small but powerful voice.
"Be still and know that I am God."
