People who know how to be still before the Lord possess the assurance that God can fight their battles for them. All the stress, fears, and pressures that pursue us, are things that God is already prepared to fight. It is interesting to note that the phrase "be still" is translated as "to cast down, to let fall, to relax your hands." Being still before the Lord sometimes means simply letting go.
This is good news for those of us who find stillness and quiet hard commodities to come by. Because it means that even if our surroundings are in chaos, our souls can be anchored deep in the stillness that comes from certainty in God's power. Have things been blurry in your life? Are you carrying the world's woes upon your shoulders? Be still. You don't have to be God - Somebody infinitely capable already has the job. Be still, my friend; the Lord knows how to fight for you.
