Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God.
Perhaps this Psalm is chosen to be read on Christmas eve for a reason.
In all the hustle and bustle of last minute shopping, family arriving (or being delayed at airports), cooking Holiday meals, getting ready for services, and putting together the “some assembly required” toys that seem to take forever. . .God calls us to stop, be still and remember.
Remember His love for us.
Remember the babe – innocent, lying in a manger sleeping in the stillness of the night.
Remember the reason He was born, and died, and rose again.
Remember that He is Emanuel – God with us.
Remember that we are to love each other as He loves us.
Be still- and know HE IS.
