Psalms 46:10. He says, “Stop your striving and recognize that I am God! I will be exalted over the nations! I will be exalted over the earth!”

We are always in a rush. We eat fast food. We push buttons and expect things to happen instantly. We get impatient with our computers because they are not fast enough. We read scripture fast, take a quick stab at meditation, send up a quick prayer then hurry off to something else. When go to church and want to hurry through to get on to the rest of our day. Occasionally we might wonder why we seldom really know the presence of our God. We think our awareness should be automatic and our growth in Him should be fast. We think it is our fast striving thar brings us into a closer awareness of God. It is God and God Who can bring us closer to His presence. We must quit our fast-paced striving and be still and quiet in His presence to recognize Him. Our question is how long are we willing to sit quietly in His presence? We need to start small and build up. It takes time to learn to be still and quiet and give our ears and mind over to God to hear, feel and know Him. Let us choose to slow down and be drawn closer to our God.
