Interrupted by pandemonium ~ A.B. Simpson

I sat with the Lord thinking this would be a very easy matter, and so I began to get still.

But, I had no sooner commenced than a pandemonium of voices erupted in my ears. A thousand clamoring notes punctured my mind, until I could hear nothing but their noise and din.

Mounting quickly within a dilemma multiplied:

  • some of them were my own questions,
  • some of them my own cares, and
  • some were my very prayers.

Others ideas were the suggestions of the tempter and the voices from this world’s turmoil.

Never before did there seem so many things to be done, to be said, to be thought and to be planned.

In every direction I was pushed and pulled and greeted with noisy acclamation and unspeakable unrest. It seemed necessary for me to listen to some of them and to answer. Yet quickly, God knowing my wrestle within reminded:

Be still, and know that I am God. (Psalm 46:10a)

The Last Word:

Satan is as fearful of you sitting with the good Lord as Jesus is desirous of your company.
