I read this in my Bible reading today. In the version I was reading (NKJV), it read, "Be angry, and sin not." That is what called my attention to it. I thought of something that happened recently.
In the middle of a trying day, I thought I'd have about 10 mins of peace and quiet before a task. I was just getting settled when something the kids were doing called me away from my R&R. I blew my top! I totally lost my cool. Not good for a Momma trying to be an example for my kids. I had to take a few minutes to calm down. I left the room and sprawled on my bed in the peace and quiet. I had a prayer, read a few minutes and I was able to face the rest of the day.
To me, that is exactly what the Psalmist is saying here. Take a moment, stand in awe of Him, pray in a silent place and be still. Being still is something we just don't do in our busy society. We rush here, rush there, never a dull moment. How much better would it be if we take time to be still before the temptation to explode?
Find your moment and be still everyday.
