Today is Kathy’s birthday. I know she is not very sensitive about telling her age but she is sensitive about anyone telling her she is getting old like I am or like I say I am. She says I can get old, but she is simply adding another year. Either way, it is a special day for the lady I love.
“Be still and know that I AM GOD.” Psalms 46:10. I can’t begin to tell you how many times God has said this to me in the past week. Our family’s get together and reunion was priceless for all of us. Our final dinner on Saturday was an event I don’t think any of us could have anticipated. God was so present and so honored. However, with the waning health of my two older sisters I want to step in and do something! God is reminding me that He is GOD, not me. As a brother I am to support and let Him be God.
This morning in my devotional reading this message of “be still” was brought into the forefront again. This time Joyce Meyer said something I hadn’t thought about in reference to Job 37:14 where Job is being told to “stand still” by one of the 4 friends attempting to give him wise counsel. Joyce writes an excerpt saying: “Standing still is action in God’ economy. It is spiritual action. We usually take action in the natural realm and do nothing in the spiritual realm. But, when we wait on God and stand still before Him, we are taking spiritual action.”
This wisdom is what I needed to hear today. My sisters are in God’s loving care. I will act when God shows me I am to do so and how to taken action. Until then, my support can be shown through staying in touch and letting them know I’m here for them.
