“Stand still and consider the wondrous works of God” Job chapter 37 verse 14.
How we need these words today, just like Job needed them centuries ago as he passed through times of pain and suffering. This Monday take time to “Stand still and consider the wondrous works of God”.
• “Stand still” will give you time to draw near to God and He to you. “Be still, and know that I am God” the psalmist was told Psalm 46 verse 10. God can be known and He is the eternal, unchanging One.

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee, how great Thou art, how great Thou art!
