“Step out of the traffic! Take a long, loving look at me, your High God,
above politics, above everything.” - Psalm 46:10 (Message)
This is such a refreshing look at the familiar words of this Psalm. We may remember the verse like this:“Be still, and know that I am God;
will be exalted among the nations,
will be exalted in the earth.”
However, as I read the words 'Step out of the traffic!' I think of intentionally getting away from the hustle of peak hour traffic. Once the noise dies down, I can take a careful look at my surroundings and in a spiritual sense, 'take a loving look' at God. It is reassuring to note that God is above all things - including politics!
Perhaps today is the day we need to step out of the rush-hour traffic and take a loving look at Jesus.
Living in Grace
