There are days when you know the enemy has you pegged! But, God already knows his tricks and will sometimes send a messenger to brighten your day. In the midst of battle, I go to my mailbox and find a special gift from a sweet friend who listened to the Lord and was faithful to obey. She sent me a shelling bag with the beautiful words “be still and know,” and a compact decorated with seashells! God’s timing is amazing! Those words were exactly what I needed to hear at that specific moment. If you don’t believe that God is involved in your life, start paying attention to the little clues, maybe it’s just a bright spot in a dark day, or a friend who calls at the perfect moment. He loves you and is there to comfort you, but sometimes we miss it because we’re so consumed with ourselves. Make sure you thank the messenger, because they followed through with their mission!
"Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!" The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah. Psalms 46:10-11
