Modesty Minute: Wolves Eat Lambs, but Lambs Eat Ivy

What do you do in that flurry of emotional turmoil when someone breaks your heart? You want to cry out. Maybe retaliate? You want to move because a psychological earthquake disturbed reality.

It is in that tumultuous, crucifying moment that you must remember these words.

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. ~Psalm 46:10 KJV

At the beginning of Psalm 46, it calms us. It tells us that God is our help.

[1] God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. [2] Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; [3] Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. ~Psalm 46:1-3 KJV

Notice this passage discusses the moving of the earth. Isn’t that exactly what we feel inside when we are troubled? When someone that we thought was our friend— perhaps a church friend— rocks the earth and stirs the sea of our emotions?

Cultivate a heart prepared to forgive. Don’t retaliate. Be still. You are an innocent lamb. The intent of a pure heart is to hope for reconciliation after a confrontation. Connect to the Vine. 1 Tell the Lord what has been done and then continue to…
“Be still and know that He is God.”

The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. ~Psalm 46:11 KJV
