In Psalm 46:10, the Lord exhorts us to “Be still, and know that I am God.” It’s counsel I need to heed more frequently, and you probably do too. So whatever else you are doing right now, STOP. Cease striving. Take a few minutes for this account of God’s unconditional pursuit of one young man. May He use it to fortify us in this truth: in the end, regardless of how immoveable the obstacles or impossible the odds for redemption, God will be exalted. Be still, and know.
