One morning there was a young boy taking a walk. As he was walking before sunrise through the neighborhood, he came upon a rabbit sitting on the sidewalk. He passed within just a few feet of him (her?), but he didn’t move. Tranquil and still, he watched as the boy came and went. As I read the story something occurred to me–if he had food to give him, the rabbit would have to remain still to receive it. If he didn’t trust the boy enough to let me walk up to him and offer the gift of food, he couldn’t give it to him.
This reminds me of todays verse. “Be still and know that I am God”
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
- Psalm 46:10 (New International Version)
Dear Lord we pray that we will be still so we can hear what you have for us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
