Relationship Building Principle-Be Still

June 11th, 2015 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Psalm 46:10.

Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth.

Psalm 46 is about looking to God in faith through circumstances that would normally melt hearts with fear.

There are references to earthquakes and tsunamis found here. Nations are in uproar. Kingdoms fall. Desolations are found on the earth.

The world suffers the consequences from humanity’s sin problem, and those consequences include disasters and armed conflict between nations. In the midst of such upheaval, God invites us to find hope and strength in the everlasting arms of God’s grace. That is where we find security for our soul. That is where we find peace in the eye of the storm. The world is not spinning out of His control. God is on the throne, and this will be clearly evident to everyone in the course of time.

Isaiah 30:15 says, “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.”

Depending on God in times of trouble is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.
