Stand Still And Take A Breath

Job 37:14

Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.

Micah 7:7

Therefore I will look unto the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.

This morning while driving to work I was thinking about everything going on this past week. We had spent one night at the emergency room with my oldest, respiratory viruses hit someone with heart problem hard.  The next day at the pediatrician with both of them, because our one year old had gotten sick, no it wasn’t covid. All kept thinking was what to do next when something hit me, stand still and take a breath. Stop worrying about what might come and just listen for God. So, I took a deep breath and let the stillness calm me. I was so worried about what might happen. I was worried about what if they get sick again, which they definitely will, and there is nothing I can do to stop it. So why stress about it. Why stress about what could happen, when God is in control. It is like that with all of us at time. Christians will worry about what if my vehicle breaks down, what if my kids get sick, what if a surprise bill arrives, or what if the whole world blows up in chaos. We worry about everything when all we have to do is stop, take a breath, and listen and watch as God take control. Your vehicle may break down, and God send a mechanic to fix it. Your kid is going to get sick, but God can use it to show a miracle. You can get an unsuspected bill, but God put a coin in the mouth of a fish he can do the same for you. If the world descends into chaos, God is still in control to protect you and your family. Stop worrying and trying to figure out how to fix things, just stand still and say okay God I am waiting.
