"Be still and know that I Am God."
Jesus gently calls us to stillness in His presence; it is in this stillness that misconceptions of our Maker are dispelled.
When we stop fearfully fumbling with our fig leaves and stand, sin and all, in His light, we find forgiveness, we find tenderness; He enfolds our exposure in royal robes and offers for our running the harbor of Homecoming.
He holds in His hand not a stone to hurl at our missteps, but a rod and a staff that comfort us.* We find not a fickle Fuhrer, but a Faithful God whose "coming to us is as consistent as the morning"*
We find, as we are still, and come to know I AM, that I AM is with us, that I AM is for us, that I AM loves us, not based on our goodness, but based on His.
"Let us know, Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD."
