How can you be still when the pink slip is in your hand, when your checking account is empty, when everybody’s talking about you, and you’re all alone in the world? Is it possible to be still when your worst fears are being realized right this minute?
It is possible, because God has promised He will be with you. Whatever He is asking you to do, you can obey Him with the confidence that He will give you the victory, precisely because He has asked you to do it.
Sometimes, our enemies aren’t other people, but time, space, logistics, or expert opinions. If God has asked you to move forward, you can ignore these things, knowing He will conquer them for you when you just rest in Him.
