Be still means to stop. Why? To know and to exalt God.
He’s still God. He’s still being exalted in the heavens: the stars are still speaking of him. He’s still being exalted in the nations: praise him for missionaries who still bring the word and for hearers who still come to faith in him.
I still exalt God realizing I am not God!
I’m still a wife, after 22 years (praise God who keeps us!)
I’m still a mom, after 11 years (praise God who keeps her!)
I’m still a daughter, after 45 years (praise God for my 80 year old dad and my eternally alive mom!)
I’m still creating (praise God for his provision!)
I’m still befriending (praise God for other people!)
I’m still homeschooling (praise God for good books!)
I’m still supporting Westmont Music (praise God for musicians!)
I’m still attending church (praise God for his sanctuary, for sabbaths and festivals)
I’m still…but 5 minutes is up.
