We are living in a very chaotic world. Our senses are continuously assaulted by noise… whether the noise of traffic, machinery, radio, TV, or via our ear buds as we listen to the latest and greatest music. Our senses are also assaulted as we hear of natural disasters near and far, or by news of horrific terror attacks, or by hearing of the abuse of the many vulnerable in our communities. It is so very distressing. Oftentimes numbness descends as our only way of coping, and in some way to block out or minimise the senseless pain and suffering.
It is difficult to deal with.
It is tempting to think there is no hope.
However, there is…
Psalm 46:10 has a great word for us in this age in which we live even though written so long ago:
“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Be still… know that God is still God. Nothing that happens today will change that. Listen for him.
