Being Still



“The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still”
(Exodus 14:14, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

When was the last time you can remember being still? And I don’t mean sitting in traffic or standing in line at the store. In today’s fast-paced culture, people are constantly multitasking, trying to do more in less time, constantly on the go, constantly seeking information, constantly checking off to-do lists. And there is nothing wrong with any of these things. But if we are going to see the Lord fight our battles, if we are going to embrace the victory He has for us, we have to make it a priority to be still before Him.

Being still means taking time alone in the presence of Almighty God. Being still means being quiet before Him, listening to His voice and meditating on His Word. But, we need to also keep our hearts and minds still no matter what else we are doing. Being still means silencing the negative voices in our minds. It means choosing right thoughts and putting our trust in Him. That’s why it’s so important to keep His Word first place in your life because when you know His Word, you know Him. When you know Him, you trust Him. When you trust Him, your heart and mind will be still before Him, and He will lead you into victory all the days of your life!


Father, I come to You in the precious name of Your Son, Jesus. I choose to be still in You. I choose to cast my cares on You. Fill me with Your peace today, fill me with Your hope as I keep my heart and mind stayed on You in Jesus’ name. Amen.

— Joel & Victoria Osteen

    There is nothing like the peace of God. Paul says it surpasses all understanding and keeps our hearts and minds at ease. (Phillipians 4,7). We give thanks for it.

    LT, this is great article.
    I thank God for it and I commend you for bringing this useful message.
    There is time for everything, but in everything let us remember our God.
    And to remember God is to be close to him through seeking him in his word and prayer.
    In both cases when done in truth, whether in study of his word or in prayer will need be still as he will speak to us.
