DAILY?READINGS: 2 Chronicles 32; Ezekiel 48; 1 John 2:12-29

Be still, and know that I am God…  Psalm 46:10

This psalm is marked by much noise and movement as torrents of water pour down and as mountains crash into the seas! Only in God are stillness and serenity to be found. It is in the quiet acceptance of His will for our lives that we can know Him. —George Hall

Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed?
To do the will of Jesus, this is rest.
Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?
On Jesus’ bosom naught but calm is found.
Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away?
In Jesus’ keeping we are safe, and they.
Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.
—E. H. Bickersteth
