Let’s face it there are just some things that can really stop us in our tracks. You know those things that can make you afraid, doubtful, and just wonder what can I do now? Let’s take a moment to discuss “Stand still.”
When was the last time you had to get past something very overwhelming? Was it a year ago, a week ago, a day ago or even a minute ago? These moments can hit us very hard and really bring a great deal of discouragement. However, it is in these very moments that we must learn to stand still. Yes, pause and breathe first. Turn your heart to God and look to Him for the next step.
We can learn so much during these times because we come to recognize where our faith is and what we are really leaning on? It also will reveal what habits have we formed and are we quick to repeat what has not worked before? In other words, did we learn from our last difficulty or do we just keep repeating the same response?
There have been many times I have had to learn to stand still. I may not have always done so right away but I realized that I needed God so much to be in what I was facing. With a great determination of faith there is an ability that God grants to enable us to just pause and wait. Seeking Him in those moments teaches you to learn how to hear His voice more clearly and
God meets us right where we are.
To stand still teaches you self-control in the utmost of occasions. You come to learn how to discipline yourself to keep your heart and mind stayed on the Lord. In this you learn to listen for His response and desire for you while facing these moments. If we can learn how to look to God with our whole heart, we can then have the ability to stand still.
Standing still may not always be easy but it is possible. Even if you don’t always respond immediately with a pause, it’s important to go quickly to God in every battle and gain the strength and wisdom you need.
Let me hear your story. Share a time you found yourself needing to stand still. Every story brings encouragement to others.
