This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Psalm 46:10 (NIV)
Today I am out of the studio, but I want you to know that having good discernment is knowing when to be still.
While there are some situations that require us to step out in faith and to take action, there are other situations that call for us just to be still. Good discernment is knowing the difference between the two.
Sometimes, when we can’t see God’s way or understand His timing, we might be more inclined to take action rather than to be still. This is exactly what happened to the tribe of Dan.They didn’t believe the land allotted to them was sufficient for all of their families, so they decided to take matters into their own hands and conquer another town.
The outcome was disastrous. Because the tribe relied on their own way and on their own understanding, they were led to failure. Their lack of trust in God kept them from His promise.
There will be times when we find ourselves in an uncertain place where we believe nothing is working in our favor. The inclination at that point is to take action because taking any action feels better than just being still. Yet being still is what’s required. When you can do this, you have demonstrated good discernment.
If you are struggling with your trust in God today and are confused as to whether you should act or be still, carry these few words with you (trust me, it works), “…Be still, and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10 (NIV)
