Wednesday in the Word.

Exodus 14:14

14 The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.

Still. This is the word that came to me as I was eating my breakfast this morning.

Still. Whispered in my ear just that quick.

Still. As in be still...wait...slow down...stop...trust Me...just be still, girl...I'm right here.

Then I thought of still as something along the lines of "are you still here?" Or "are you still worrying about that?!" Or a "I'm still waiting..." said in my most impatient tone kind of still.

But it wasn't that at all. It wasn't a still as I would think of it. It was more of a...I hear you...still. I am watching you...still. I am caring for you...still. I am working on your behalf...still. I am protecting you...still. I am guiding you...still. I love you...still.

And I can't help but think on Psalm 46:10, "Be still and know that I am God." Such a simple phrase. A few short words with such a huge impact. I love that about God. What it takes me a thousand words to say and I still haven't gotten my point across, God whispers in a few little words and His message is complete. I guess now the question is...am I willing to listen?
