I Will Be Still!

This is a Declaration of Truth I say over my life:  I have time, I will be still! ⁠

I have a really hard time being still. Because I’m wired for progress, action, accomplishment, and success, it is hard for me to just…be. ⁠

Ambition can be a good thing, but it can also get in the way of some God things. Or just get in the way of God. ⁠

I struggled with feeling guilty about “being still,” so I added this Declaration of Truth to my list. ⁠

Truth statements have become one of the key spiritual disciplines which help me replace the lies of the enemy with the Truth of God’s Word. Every one of my declarations is rooted in Scripture: ⁠

Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.⁠

Truth statements like these are much more than self-help or positive affirmations. Truth statements are just that…TRUTH! ⁠

Scripture tells us that the enemy is the father of lies. He uses those lies to distract us, derail us, and destroy us. The only way lies are defeated is by replacing them with Truth.⁠

I have time, I will be still! ⁠

Say it! Believe it! Live it! I have time, I will be still! ⁠
