Be Still

We are surrounded by noise.  This morning I was bombarded by the sounds of hungry cows and sheep hollering at me to hurry up with their morning feed.  As I sit here, a helicopter flies overhead, nearly shaking my house while a radio plays in the background.  But I am used to it.  We're rarely quiet anymore.  We have the ability to be entertained in our homes, in our cars, and everywhere.  But in Psalm 46:10 God tell us to "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."  God tells us to be still, be quiet.  Know that God can speak to us even in the midst of our noisy chaotic lives if He chooses to.  But it certainly makes it easier to listen to Him when we are still.
