Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
You keep trying to move, and I keep telling you to be still.
You’re getting sucked up and sucked into the vortex of uncertainty when you don’t need to.
Be still and know that I. Am. God.
Am – meaning present tense; I know what is going on, what you are enduring, what you are tolerating and your need to rest. I preside over everything and every body. There is no-thing that is too large for me or too miniscule to not give attention or ear to. I. AM. Period.
“Therefore wait for Me,” says the Lord,
“Until the day I rise up for plunder;
My determination is to gather the nations
To My assembly of kingdoms,
Do you remember when I first told you that? How impossible it seemed? How ostensibly long it seemed to simply wait? It was because you were not still while you waited. It was because you were striving when all I wanted you to do was rest. It is the same now. I want to you to rest.
You are like a toddler, always moving, always busy, fighting nap time…and only when you are ready to collapse, do you rest. This is not resting. This is exertion. It is exhaustion. I do not want you comatose, worn out or stressed out – in distress. I want you awake, aware, watching everything that occurs – document and record. Remain in Me, resting in Me.
You do not have to exert any force for these things to occur or to take place. I am your strong tower. All you need do is rest…in Me. Wait on Me. Do not make plans or move without consulting with me. It’s wasted effort…and we all know how much you detest wasted effort.
You do not need to bring resolution to the situation – I am the resolution.
And that, my friends, is where I am right now. Having to be still and rest. It can be hard, so I am asking for prayers to help me do exactly that.
