The Preserved and Living Word of God

LET GOD BE GOD

LET GOD BE GOD

I’m more landlubber than a sailor, but I’ve puttered around in a bass boat enough to know the secret for finding land in a storm. You don’t aim at another boat. You certainly don’t stare at the waves. You set your eyes on an object unaffected by the wind—a light on the shore—and you go straight toward it. You see, the light is unaffected by the storm.

In seeking God you do the same. You focus on “a cut above” any storm life may bring. Like Job, you find peace in the pain. Like Job, you cover your mouth and sit still. Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God.” A command with a promise. Be still. Cover your mouth. Bend your knees. And, as a result, you will know that I am God. So just be still. Be quiet, be open, be willing. Let God be God.
