Be Still

Everything is instant now-a-days. Instant access to information, instant food, instant internet, instant payments, instant messaging, etc etc. Even instant girlfriend or boyfriend for some people. In just one click, what they want or what they need is already there. All thanks to technology.

But because of this fast-paced world, a lot of people grow impatient.

We struggle for things to get done quickly, in our way and in our time. Well, not everything good is done in a snap of a finger.

There's this saying that "God helps those who help themselves". That is not true at all. It does not boil down to us doing something to make things better and relying on our own willpower. Some people just have that "Hey God, since you're not doing anything, I'll already help you." attitude. Well, guess what? It shouldn't be up to us, but up to God.
"Just because you don't see anything happening doesn't mean God is not working."
God wants to help us in everything, all we have to do is to trust in Him. Not in ourselves, but in Him. Trust in His perfect timing, His will, His plans for you and every area of our lives.

Trusting in Him doesn't mean that we don't do anything, but we anticipate that He will do something great. If we have faith that He will help us in our studies, then study as much as we can still leaning on His grace and getting strength from Him. Faith and good deeds go hand in hand. (James 2:17)

We should stop struggling to do things our way and wait on Him.
Be STILL, and know HE is God. 
"He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”" - Psalm 46:10 (NIV)
