"God is a safe place to hide, ready to help when we need him. We stand fearless at the cliff edge of doom, courageous in sea storm and earthquake, Before the rush and roar of oceans, the tremors that shift mountains. Jacob-wrestling God fights for us, God-of-Angel-Armies protects us. River fountains splash joy, cooling God's city, this sacred haunt of the Most High. God lives here, the streets are safe, God at your service from crack of dawn. Godless nations rant and rave, kings, and kingdoms threaten, but Earth does anything he says. Jacob-wrestling God fights for us, God-of-Angel-Armies protects us. Attention, all! See the marvels of God! He plants flowers and trees all over the Earth, Bans war from pole to pole, breaks all the weapons across his knee. "Step out of the traffic! Take a long, loving look at me, your High God, above politics, above everything." (Psalm 46:1-10, Message Translation)
When God says, 'Be still and know that I'm God,' it's for a purpose. Learning to do just this is a game-changer and gives a greater understanding of Proverbs 3:5-6. When life gets overwhelming, and busyness takes precedence, knowing that God is our refuge, strength, and present help sustain us in trouble. The highs and lows in life are often what God uses to develop our faith and trust in Him. I never imagined I would tell challenges thank you but guess what? I'm beyond thankful... I'm grateful! Growth does not occur by happenstance; it occurs through the lessons learned through our experiences.
On this Fiercely Free Friday, let us boldly acknowledge that He is the holy God, and we can be still in this powerful truth.
