Get to know God better!

“Fast” and “faster” describe life today!

Fast food picked up at the drive-through window…

Computer processors and increased bandwidth for Internet access…

Even our suitcases have wheels…

Our lives are stuck on fast forward.

God says:
“Be still!”

Is He kidding?
Me?
Be still?

Not with my schedule…
We are on a mad dash-
– moving too quickly for our own good, particularly our own spiritual good.

“Be still,” He says, and for good reason—”and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10).

You may recognize your neighbour because you see his face as you walk by.

But you will not really know him until you stop, and spend time with him.

Relationships are not built by a wave but a handshake,
– not by running past but by stopping to talk.

What is true about getting to know our neighbour is-
– true about getting to know God.

Do you take time to be still?

Daily Bible reading, devotions and individual and corporate worship all require time, and flourish as we are still.

Be still!
