Ps 46 Be still

10 “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”

When I had my ordination service at Bedford, my dad bought me this picture with that verse as the text. Now I find myself reading it in my devotions.

Its not easy to sit still, and reflect and contemplate. As a pastor I want to be out there doing things, talking to people, organising events, preparing for speaking.
However if I am to inspire people with words, those words need to come from something that has inspired me, they cant come from a vacum.
A vacum is created when a vessel is emptied of everything in it.
I need to remind myself that sometimes the best work I can do is to be still, and know God is God. What a privilege to have the time given to me to be able to do this.
