Put Life on Pause

PSLAMS 46:1-11

1 God the Refuge of His People. God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.

2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change And though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea;

3 Though its waters roar and foam, Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride.

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, The holy dwelling places of the Most High.

5 God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns.

6 The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered; He raised His voice, the earth melted.

7 The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold. 8 Come, behold the works of the LORD, Who has wrought desolations in the earth.

9 He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariots with fire.

10 "Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."

11 The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold.

10 "Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."

The King James Version says, “Be still and know that I am God.” This may be the very reason we do not know God as we use to. We are in to big of a hurry. We hurry to work, we hurry home, we hurry to school to watch a ball game, a play anything. We are a country in a hurry and when we get to where we wanted to go we are in a hurry to go some place else. “Be still and know that I am God!” We now go through life and work worrying about every thing. We worry if we will make any money then we worry that some one will take it from us. This is not any thing new as we will see as we look at these verses.

The parable of the sower of seeds

LUKE 8:14

14 "The seed which fell among the thorns, these are the ones who have heard, and as they go on their way they are choked with worries and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to maturity.

Even those that served the Lord got caught up in this.

LUKE 10:4042

40 But Martha was distracted with all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me."

41 But the Lord answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things;

42 but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her."

The Lord speaks of this.

Luke 14:16 24

16 But He said to him, "A man was giving a big dinner, and he invited many;

17 and at the dinner hour he sent his slave to say to those who had been invited, "Come; for everything is ready now.’

18 "But they all alike began to make excuses. The first one said to him, "I have bought a piece of land and I need to go out and look at it; please consider me excused.’

19 "Another one said, "I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to try them out; please consider me excused.’

20 "Another one said, "I have married a wife, and for that reason I cannot come.’

21 "And the slave came back and reported this to his master. Then the head of the household became angry and said to his slave, "Go out at once into the streets and lanes of the city and bring in here the poor and crippled and blind and lame.’

22 "And the slave said, "Master, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.’

23 "And the master said to the slave, "Go out into the highways and along the hedges, and compel them to come in, so that my house may be filled.

24 "For I tell you, none of those men who were invited shall taste of my dinner."’

The Lord tells us to be on our guard.

LUKE 21:34 36

34 "Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap; 35 for it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the earth.
