We have created more information in the last 4-5 years than in all of human history before it, and it's coming at us all the time. The constant barrage of news and knowledge can dominate our minds. In today's environment of media bombardment, it becomes increasingly difficult to find time to be quiet, to think, and to pray.

(Psalms 46:10) says, "be still, and know that I am God," reminding us of the necessity to take time to focus on the Lord. Many people find  that a "quiet time" is an essential part of each day-a time to read the Bible, pray, and consider the goodness and greatness of God.

When we, like the writer of Psalm 46, experience the reality that "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble", it drives our fear away, shifts our focus from the world's turmoil to God's peace, and creates a quiet confidence that our Lord is in control.


No matter how chaotic the world my become around us, we can find quietness and strength in our heavenly Father's love and power. Each day we need to be still and listen to the Lord.
