November 6 - Peace...
IN THE MIDST OF THE STORM
"Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among all the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."
"Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among all the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."Psalm 46:10
Today is November 6th. Election Day! With all of the hype, the media blitz, and the candidates criss-crossing the country to build up interest, the anticipation of the results almost has us holding our breath. What will be the outcome?
I'm sitting in a little mountain cabin beside a fire, surrounded by clouds and occasional snow showers, preparing for my weekend seminar at The Cove, Pursuing MORE of Jesus. As isolated as I am, I can still feel the pulse of the nation beating almost frantically. Because I don't want to be by myself when the returns start coming in, I'm going to drive across the valley and watch the evening news with my Daddy.
But through all of the "noise," I can hear God's voice clearly coming to me through a Psalm that I have been meditating on since the beginning of September. It's one of the first passages of Scripture that I memorized as a girl, but it has come to have fresh meaning in the past few weeks. Psalm 46.
God states emphatically, repeating for emphasis, "I will be exalted." Regardless of what the storm is...whether it's a political storm triggered by the election, or an environmental storm such as hurricane Sandy, or an economic storm as the stock market reacts, or an international storm brewing in Libya or the Middle East...you and I can have the deep peace that passes all understanding because God is in control! He is in charge! And He will be exalted!
One day every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess, that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God! Praise His Name! He will be exalted!
