Be Still - January 18, 2017

Jesus taught us to pray with reverence when he modeled for us, “Hallowed be your name” (Matthew 6:9). His phrase is a petition, not a proclamation. A request, not an announcement. Be hallowed, Lord. Do whatever it takes to be holy in my life. Exalt yourself. Glorify yourself. You be Lord, and I will be quiet.

The psalm that says, “Be still and know that I am God” contains a command with a promise (Psalm 46:10). The command? Be still. Cover your mouth. Bend your knees. The promise? You will know that I am God.

In the midst of your family storms, and in this storm that has swept over our country and the entire world, make it a point to be still and set your sights on him. Let God be God. Be open and willing. Allow God to be hallowed– holy in your life.
