Exodus 14:13-14 (New International Version)
13 Moses answered the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14 The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still."
Sometimes we are actively engaged in battles that no-one sees in our daily lives; battles against negativity, misunderstandings; struggles within our own hearts.
What a powerful encouragement these verses are for just such a circumstance. The battle belongs to the Lord; I need only to "be still."
Only to "be still?" Is it really that simple? Yes, for in his presence we find that "peace which transcends all understanding." (Philippians 4:7)
In his presence our hearts are turned from the twin sins of pride and Self. In his presence our hearts are turned from earth towards heaven. In his presence we are changed.
I Googled "being still" and found these questions at a wonderful blog with the link http://proverbs14verse1.blogspot.com/2007/10/being-still.html
"When was the last time you were just still?
To hear complete quietness and doing absolutely nothing except meditate on this verse?
Have you stilled your mind?
Have you stilled your heart?
Have you stilled your soul?"
Psalm 46:10 (New International Version)
10 "Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."
