Genesis 11:4-7 is about the Tower of Babel. The people are building a large tower to try to reach the heavens. God said that "if as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them." So God confused their language and they started babbling in different languages. This was then called the Tower of Babel.

Here are a couple observations from the Tower of Babel.
1. If you are trying to corner the market on a certain program IF GOD DOESN’T WANT IT TO HAPPEN IT WON’T, NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY.
2. If you are trying to scheme your way to the top of the corporate ladder then.... “No matter how crafty or smart you think you are God can stop this in a second if he wants to. Please ask God first before starting out into any endeavor.
3. You have some type of addiction that has you bound and in chains. Don't try to get out of it in your own strength. Call upon the Lord for help. Don’t build your own Tower of Babel to try to stop it.
4. Your child is sick and cannot figure out what to do? Don’t build that tower.
5. You job and finances are coming unraveled – Don’t build that tower.

It is tough to wait upon the Lord when everything seems to be crashing around us. But things aren’t crashing around God. He is a God of order and not only knows the outcome to your problem but knows the outcome to the end of time.

God wants us to trust in Him and not rely on what is seen. When we worry, get mad or want revenge; stop. Activity doesn’t mean that it is the right activity. If I get stuck in traffic I would rather get the map out and go 50 miles out of my way just to keep moving. A lot of times in life instead of resting in God and trusting His promises we get the map out and start going in a frantic pace all over the countryside. We would rather be doing something instead of letting God do our something.

Today stop and let God give you the peace you have been looking for. Yes, it is tough to stop in a fast paced, world but stopping for the Lord’s guidance is faith. Stopping will help prevent you from blurting a word out you shouldn’t. Stopping will help keep you from making a mistake that may change generations to come. When you finally get used to stopping and listening to God first then and only then will that elusive peace you have been looking for start to seep into the inner recesses of your mind.

You can have peace in a world of trials and turmoil. Quit building your own tower of activity, God has already built it and it is in the person of Jesus Christ.

Trust in Him and you won’t be led astray.

Have a great day.
