Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God.”
It’s easy to become overloaded, and go overboard with busyness. How nice it would be to fast forward through the bad times and slow motion the good times. It would also be nice not to have to wait. So much of our time is spent in hurry up and wait.
Waiting is a tough thing to deal with. You hurry to the doctor’s office and wait, not knowing what’s going to happen. You hurry to the store then wait in line, sometimes with rude people, at the grocery store.
Being busy can distract from the really important things in our lives, people. Being busy is one way the devil distracts us from the main thing–God. One thing we have to remember is that wait is not an ugly four-letter word, and busy is not a spiritual gift. Only during those moments alone with God can we really experience a peace that surpasses all understanding. Busy is the enemy of peace. Busy steals precious time. Busy can rob us of blessings. Don’t be so busy with little things that you miss out on what matters most.
God says, “Be still.” Not hurry up and wait.
