Being still and knowing He is God is doing just that: it’s trusting in God. He is good. He is faithful. He is trustworthy.
He wants me to be in profound community with Him, resting in confidence in His power and love, and to live in the security of His character.
I doubt that He would have me lose heart, have shattered dreams, a worn-out body, and a hopeless spirit. I doubt that He would give me dreams and passions and abilities without chances to use them and live them out.
You see the impossible, He sees opportunities. God can either showcase His authority or help you see your faith in action.
It is in the storm that we seek an anchor to keep us steady, a rock to cling to, a hope to believe in.
