Second Opinions

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

"Be still"

Stop talking

Switch off your phone

Stop commenting


Stop arguing

Stop questioning

Stop moaning

"and know"

Stop doubting

Be sure

Have faith

No second opinion

"I am God"

God is Almighty

God is in control

God is love

God is King

God is my hope, rock, fortress

God is ever-present, a help in time of trouble

God is my Father

God is my shepherd- He will lead me, nourish me, protect me and restore me.

A friend sent this to me the other day knowing it was what I needed. I was being still. I was saying, God is in control. BUT, after reading this I realized I was wanting a second opinion so I would know, for sure! When will I learn? I got several signs but I found myself wanting another and another.

I am all about getting a second opinion from a doctor. Sometimes we need it to know which route to take or whether to stop or go. BUT, with God, we do not need second opinion's. He is not just any god or any physician. He is the Great Physician! We can pray and trust and not try to force the outcome. We have to trust Him during the silence. God will open the right door at the right time. He wants what is best for us.

"Trusting God means thinking and acting according to God's Word in spite of circumstances, feelings or consequences."
