Cease Striving (Be Still)

“Cease striving and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” — Psalm 46:10

One of my favorite verses that I fall back on quite often. When my life seems overwhelming and I can’t keep up with all the demands this world throws at me, when the peace I experience with the fullness of Christ in me has fled — I’m reminded that I need to be still in God’s almighty presence, exalt Him and know He is in control of all things, including my life.

Being still in His presence, I pray a prayer that includes praise and thanksgiving which helps me to know my God is mighty and can handle whatever comes my way. Prayer for others reminds me that some have worse hurdles than mine to get over and prayer for myself helps me relinquish my life to the One who gave it to me.

There is NOTHING too big or too small that the God of this universe, who created you, can’t handle. Cease your striving and know that He is God. HE WILL BE EXALTED!!!!!!!

Continually seeking Him,

Sharon
