Go ahead. Hit pause….on the DVD player, the CD player, the IPOD, the Youtube video, or whatever activity or combination of activities is calling for your attention right this very moment. Hit pause. And listen. Be still. Know that He is God. This is not simply a knowing in the cognitive sense, but it is a knowing in the sense of our will, our trust, our commitment, our affections, the whole of who we are in community and privately. Be still and know that He is God. Suddenly, much of what was so reluctantly paused, now pales in comparison to the surpassing glory of the One whom we worship, the One whom we know, both in the stillness of quiet solitude, and in the fellowship of our daily community.
