Part of learning to live with a chronic illness is slowing down and knowing God. As we live with the daily challenges of an ongoing disease it is essential we get adequate rest.
This respite is both physical and spiritual. Today’s Scripture tells us to slow down, that is to be still and know I am God.
Today’s Bible Verse:
Psalm 46:10 (KJV), “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”
What the Verse Means:
Part of learning to deal with a chronic illness is learning to slow down.
Personalized Prayer Using Today’s Scripture:
- Heavenly Father, help me to be still and know you more intimately, and to feel your presence.
- Lord Jesus, please help me to slow down and even stop when necessary to get to know God.
- I pray that I would find rest in the adequacy of God.
