Be still and know – Vicar’s comment

I wonder how often you ask someone to give you their perspective on something about you or your life?

I’ve been struck recently by the fact that even when by God’s grace I think I sense where we’re heading, it’s possible to feel a bit ‘foggy’, like when you feel you see the day-to-day detail but not so much the bigger picture.

And so it’s worth remembering that God can use other Christians to help us gain godly perspective on things.

In Proverbs we read that ‘plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed‘ (Proverbs 15:22, NIV).

Modern life can be very ‘me, me, me’, but let’s make sure we are humbly open to godly, biblical counsel from others where it is to be found…even when it means admitting we might have blind spots!!

And of course, let’s be humble and honest before the Lord Jesus and seek his will in everything we are and everything we do.

Creator of everything is the most sensible approach we can have.

That’s why it’s been so good to focus on prayer at this time of year through the Thy Kingdom Come initiative.

So, whatever your circumstances at the minute, whether in busyness or rest, ‘Be still and know that I am God’, as well.

Yours in Jesus
