Gwen closed her eyes and didn’t dare to even breathe. Japanese troops were right outside her house, looking for her and other missionaries.
It was World War 2, and American forces in the Philippines were nearby. Just when Gwen and her friends thought someone would throw open the trapdoor to their basement hiding place, loud voices began getting dimmer.
The enemy troops were distracted, and left in a hurry!
Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
God always shows up at the right time. If we can remember that, and commit ourselves to prayer and reading Scripture, we will not let fear overtake us.
There are times we need to just be still, and wait on the Lord.
He always knows just where we are, and what we need.
Lord, help us to be calm when we want to run. By waiting on You, we also practice obedience. Amen.
