“Hallowed be thy name.” The phrase is a petition, not a proclamation. A request, not an announcement. Hallowed be your name. Do whatever it takes to be holy in my life. Take your rightful place on the throne. You be Lord, and I’ll be quiet.
The Holy One dwells on a different level from the rest of us. What frightens us does not frighten him. “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). This verse contains a command with a promise. The command? Be still. Cover your mouth. Bend your knees. The promise? You will know that I am God. The vessel of faith journeys on soft waters. Belief rides on the wings of waiting.
In the midst of your daily storms, make it a point to be still and set your sights on him. Let God be God.
