Be Still and Know Idle Hands

Daily Reading: Psalm 46:8-10

Everyday we go out into the world hoping to have that one opportunity to show God's power to those around us. We stay busy every minute of the day believing GOD's word that Idle hands are not good. Yet those around us may see what we are doing as the work of something other than GOD. Being busy is something that is quite common in today's society. It seems everyone is on the go. No one stops to enjoy life for very long. We prefer to do things alone and get them done quickly rather than enjoy our tasks and the potential opportunities we could have with others. We direct others to do what we want, what we view that needs to be done assuming that we will have time later to enjoy each others company. Yet it is not GOD using these moments for his work but satan. The sharp tone, nasty words, or overly busy actions that make the people around become flustered are damaging to GOD's work. No task is so important that it is worth upsetting another person. If what we are doing causes another to become flustered then we are going against the very nature of what GOD desires. He wants us to be still and know HIM. He wants us to let him give us opportunities to enjoy together rather than us trying to make them on our own. When we force things we are not doing things in GOD's time and may even be counter-productive to GOD's will and works.

Psalm 46:10 "Be still and know that I am GOD; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."
