Chances are, your life is stressful. Our work, family, school, and church schedules are a kind of juggling act we maintain while we manage to deal with other unexpected obstacles, like the car breaking down, our kids coming down with a cold, the roof springing a leak. Whatever the case, our day-to-day lives can be so hectic that we forget to stop, breathe, and reflect.
In Psalms 46:10, the Lord declares, “Be still, and know that I am God.” But how often are we actually still? And, even more, how often do we really know that God is God? How often do we make our daily activities become bigger in our lives than the still, small voice inside of us? Instead of Christ becoming our main focus, we let our jobs, relationships, and hobbies become the guiding light in our lives. “Be still and know that God is God” becomes “Be stressed and let Stress become our God.”
Our hearts become a battlefield, one where the quiet, imploring voice of God is drowned out by the many voices constantly vying for our attention. These voices become self-appointed gods, gods that are always at war with each other, at war with The God, The I AM. So, how do we refocus, how do we learn to be still once again?
These questions are central to Kyle Idleman’s Gods At War Bible Study. And on February 27th, Kyle Idleman will be hosting a Gods at War Simulcast with special musical guests For Kings and Country. Through the simulcast, you can join with your church or small group Bible study while Kyle encourages you to rewire your thoughts and start focusing on a true relationship with Christ. Using true, powerful and honest teaching, the “Gods at War” simulcast and study will help clear path away from the heartache of our 21st century idolatry back to the heart of God — enabling us to truly be completely committed followers of Jesus.
You can register to join the simulcast here, and if you register in January, you and your group can receive 20% off.
Let’s refocus and make our hearts still. Jesus assured us in John 16:33 that “in this world you will have trouble” but He immediately declared after this that we should, “take heart! I have overcome the world.” Christ is bigger than our troubles, our stressful days, He’s much bigger than all our other gods at war.
