We encounter problems in our lives and in response we often look for solutions. Finding solutions means action. We look for what it is that we can do to make things better. We problem solve, often relying on our own experience and knowledge to make things better, but there is another way to approach our problems and challenges!
Author Lisa Chan is quoted as saying, "Being still means you and God. Alone. Just the two of you." When we are faced with problems, we can become so involved in fixing things that we don't take the time to be still, to talk and listen to God, to follow His lead. God will fight for each of us, but we need to be in tune with His will and His plan. By being still and spending time alone with God, we can know Him and become aware of His plan for our lives!
When problem-solving, be still and spend time learning God's plan!
Thank You for fighting for me. Help me to take the time to talk and listen to You so that I am following Your plan rather than fighting against it. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
