Spiritual Stillness

In the hubbub of the busy work-a-day world, how often we see evidences of hurry! Restless energy, hasty judgment, impatient actions, all indicate a wrong manner of thinking. Is not the cultivation of spiritual stillness the great need of many to-day—that stillness whereof the poet says, "Let us labor for an inward stillness"?

A profound and beautiful Scriptural reference to this desirable quality is found in the Psalmist's admonition, "Be still, and know that I am God." How potent these simple words—"Be still"! What a sense of quietude, and also what a rebuke to haste and worry, they convey! And the assurance, "Know that I am God," inspires one to confide all to Him, the only real power.
