Be still” is one of the most difficult directions to follow, especially when we face a storm.
Sometimes the storm isn’t even for us but we feel compelled to help and suddenly find ourselves in the middle of it. Helping isn’t always the best thing.
If you know someone who continually needs help to get through a storm, maybe that’s because you continue to help them and they never go thru the storm alone with God.
We have a tendency to insert ourselves in God’s place thinking we are helping when we are actually prolonging or negating the lesson or the change the storm was intended for.
Even in our own storms it’s easier to rush for a solution instead of being still and listening for confirmation from the Word of which direction we should take.
When we try too hard or move too fast for a resolution we again insert ourselves into God’s place and may take the wrong path.
Storms are a part of life. Some are ours some are for others. They can be personal, professional, or spiritual in nature. Try to remember that not every storm is meant for you to ride through.
Be still, wait on the Lord, He will be true to His Word and direct you, if you wait on Him.
