On April 9 at the Be Still event, pastor and author Crawford Loritts shared a message inviting followers of Jesus to experience and live out Psalm 46 even in the midst of the global pandemic.
"Be still, and know that I am God!
I will be honored by every nation.
I will be honored throughout the world.”
Psalm 46:10, NLT
It can be easy to give into the chaos and worry that often consumes people during times of crisis like this one. But what if God desires to make good come even out of tragedies to remind you who He is and what really matters in life?
We cannot reflect Jesus unless we are being still. Here are five practical ways to do just that.
Do not be anxious. You have a Father who cares about you and loves you. If He provides for the needs of the flowers and the birds (Matthew 6:28), won’t He take care of you?
God loves you. He doesn’t make promises He can’t keep. You can trust and rest in Him. This doesn’t mean you should pretend everything is OK and deny hard feelings.
We have some resources for you if you are struggling with:
Reflect on your relationship with Him. Ask: “Does God have all of me? Who and what am I really trusting?” Pray: “Help me remove idols — things in my life that I put above You, that I am holding on to.”
It’s easy to get distracted and worship the things God blesses you with rather than worshiping the One who created all things. For more on searching your heart (Psalm 139:23-24), check out:
