Psalm 46:10 God says, "Stop fighting and know that I am God! I am the one who defeats the nations; I am the one who controls the world."

Much Too Fast

I was having lunch the other day with an old friend and he asked me, “Berni, why is it that you eat so quickly?” Well, the answer is that it all happened years ago, when I was training to be an officer in the army.

They put us under a huge amount of pressure to see who could cope, and we all learned to eat quickly so we could cram everything into our day. I guess old habits die hard.

And you know, it’s one of the things that so many of us do in life – we race through everything, just to fit it all in. So much so, that we lose our perspective on life.

Of all the things you’re trying to cram into your life, how many of them are really going to matter at the end of the day? And in any case, why is it that we imagine that it’s all up to us? That somehow God isn’t involved? That somehow, He doesn’t have the wherewithal to make a difference, hmm?!

God says, “Stop fighting and know that I am God! I am the one who defeats the nations; I am the one who controls the world.” (Psalm 46:10)

You may know that verse better by another translation:

be still and know that I am God.

That friend of mine who asked me why I was eating so quickly, he has a gentle, quiet, godly grace about him. Somehow you just can’t be like that when you’re racing round like a madman.

Listen:

be still and know that I am God.

That’s His Word. Fresh … for you … today.

More haste, less speed!! I’m guilty of it too, Berni.
