I wonder how often the Lord has a similar message for us in our attempts to accomplish our desires (even righteous ones). "Stop, and stand still." This is one of the hardest things for us to hear when there is something to be done. It comes down to trusting in the arm of flesh rather than the arm of the Lord. If we are standing still, we are doing nothing to accomplish our goal. It is out of our control. But if we trust in the arm of the Lord, we can wait upon him by standing still and know that His desires will achieve their righteous result.
