At the beginning of Edge of Tomorrow (in theaters tomorrow), Tom Cruise is a lackluster action hero. A glorified public relations flack for the military, he’s terrified by the thought of battle. But we always knew he’d turn things around. Why?
Like many of the South’s most revered dishes, fried green tomatoes are deeply rooted in rural life.
Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is facing a suspension for his role of his hitting Janay Rice (formerly Janay Palmer), his fiancée at the time of the incident and now his wife, and his statement on Friday likely won’t ease the way he’s viewed by the public.

“The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still” (Exodus 14:14, NIV)
When was the last time you can remember being still? And I don’t mean sitting in traffic or standing in line at the store. In today’s fast-paced culture, people are constantly multitasking, trying to do more in less time, constantly on the go, constantly seeking information, constantly checking off to-do lists. And there is nothing wrong with any of these things. But if we are going to see the Lord fight our battles, if we are going to embrace the victory He has for us, we have to make it a priority to be still before Him.
Being still means taking time alone in the presence of Almighty God. Being still means being quiet before Him, listening to His voice and meditating on His Word. But, we need to also keep our hearts and minds still no matter what else we are doing. Being still means silencing the negative voices in our minds. It means choosing right thoughts and putting our trust in Him. That’s why it’s so important to keep His Word first place in your life because when you know His Word, you know Him. When you know Him, you trust Him. When you trust Him, your heart and mind will be still before Him, and He will lead you into victory all the days of your life!
