Between glancing and looking

In the busy-ness of life in this day and age, glancing comes easy, and looking takes effort, so most things get a glance, and not near enough other things get a real look. When you glance you look at something and take in maybe one detail, whereas you study something in a look. You get lots more useful-actually critical-information.
This leaves you with a different reaction than maybe you should have. A glance at the object on your periphery in the street tells you its an object, the look tells you it’s a kid, on a bike, and he may not see you coming ahead. The result can be the difference between a stop, and an unfortunate accident.
Look at Psalm 46:10- Be still, and know that I am God. Here, you’re seeing a command that says WAY more than stop your motion! The kid in the seat moves about, and you tell them “be still”, so their movement does not create a disturbance. But this “be still” is not really about the lack of motion. Its about regarding life, having, or exercising control in a situation. Back off, make no effort at control or even influence past prayer, and let the Divine One take over.
Next we see “and know that I am God”. Here’s where you not only back off the exercise of effort, but know that the one you are handing it off to is MORE than able to take care of it. What peace we can have from knowing and acknowledging His almighty Lordship of EVERYthing! Get your hands off, and let Him handle it-Be Still.
Tell me what you think, I’m just thinkin out loud!
