“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
“Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”
When was the last time you were truly still before God? Found calmness in the chaos? Truly just sat as His feet as He spoke to you through His Word? Take a moment today and be still before God..

It’s always so wonderful to be reminded of this powerful truth. The best place to be is at His feet. Hallelujah !
Thanks, Marci! I really needed to be reminded of this today. Yesterday my husband asked me how my personal devotional life has been and I had to admit it’s been spotty at best! I do them with he and the kids but sometimes forget about being still before God myself 🙂
