Psalms 46:10 says stand still and know that I am God. Do you ever wonder why we’re told to stand still. I believe because in order for Jesus to take the wheel and drive in your life you have to choose to be in the passenger seat.
If you’re up moving around or fighting for the wheel you’re putting the vehicle and the journey at an unnecessary risk. But if you choose to sit in the passenger seat and allow God to take the reins, then being still will get you to your destination in a wonderful way. You see, being a passenger allows you to rest your eyes, your mind, and your energy. You can hold things as the passenger, you can eat comfortably, you can even take a nap if you need to. Being still is the best thing we can do because when God Takes the Wheel we don’t have to muster up the strength to stay awake, be aware of every oncoming car ,or drive through torturous terrain and difficult construction. If we can learn to Simply Be Still and sit in the passenger seat we open our lives up to the possibility of the wonderful places only God can take us.
I love my Bishop Holcomb… He just knocked me out of my see with a revelation. So many times in our relationship with God, as Christians, we tend to think that life in Christ means a life without problems when that is not true. Life with Christ means that no matter what situation you are in, God is able to help you!
Bad things happen to all people, but because you have God, you have tools such as increased PEACE and His POWER so that you can handle the bad!!!!
Like this- When you have an understanding that God is greater than your trial or tribulations, you then understand that in God everything will be alright. God extend His power to us so that when trials come, we can rest easy because as Christians we understand the victory is already ours. Now it’s time for you to tell yourself who wins … the enemy which may also be called your situation, or God? When you choose God, you are taking your hands off of the situation and allowing God to lead. The beauty of God leading is that He is a guaranteed win, there is not a failure in God… Don’t believe me, read your word.
You can go ahead and shout now… that’s life changing information!

When I woke up today the scripture in Mark chapter 12:31 was in my heart-
31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
When I was praying God told me that we must be reminded that everyone on this earth has had good days, bad days, made mistakes, accomplished something, had a friend, lost a friend, the list can go on and on. But the point is that despite our choices, actions, or lifestyle we as human beings are more alike than different. And we as the people of God have a responsibility to love instead of dehumanizing.
If we are honest, we are quick to justify then forgive ourselves, but can we say the same for our neighbor? Let’s practice LIVING the Word of God today. I can know you are a thief and still genuinely care about you getting to know Christ and His love. Will I leave my purse around you…? NO… but I can still be there for you and pray for you. Our differences shouldn’t be a barricade between Gods love and intention for our neighbor. We can do better body of Christ… we Will do better. Peace
