Faith Action for Today – Do Nothing?

“Peace Be Still.” Those are the words I speak to myself when I am feeling anxious, rushed, or simply harried.

Mornings With Jesus is excellent, daily devotional put out by Guideposts. Writer Jeannie Blackmer penned a short little morning devotion in which she explained her spiritual process:

  • Pause
  • Focus
  • Praise

When life gets hectic, she pauses. She turns her attention (her focus) to Jesus. Then, she praises Him for a blessing her life. What a simple process, but one that can be life changing.

So often life is crazy.  We get caught up in the rat race. God knew that we would all do this which is why he created the Sabbath, a day that we are all supposed to stop what we are doing and focus on him. But how many of us do that?

“The Lord will fight for you. You only need to be still”  Exodus 14:14

When we are struggling with something in life, sometimes the best action is to do nothing.  That’s right, take no physical action.  Instead, turn the problem over to God.  Surrender that problem to Him and say, “I can’t do this Lord.  I’ve tried everything.  I put it in your hands.”  Yes, be still.

“You will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord’s victory.” ~ 2 Chronicles 20:17

Now, don’t get me wrong.  If we lost our job and are out of work, we can’t just sit home, binging on Netflix and think some job is going to fall on into lap.  Instead we probably need to brush up our resume.  God admonishes the lazy.

But for many problems, God instructs us to be still.  He instructs us to have faith.  Having faith oftentimes requires us to turn our struggles over to Him and “rest” assured in His strength that He will handle it.

Give it a try sometime soon, and see if His way is better than yours.
