Be still

September 21st, 2011

I am thinking about and meditating on the first part of Psalm 46:10 today. It says, “Be still and know that I am God”.

It is a great verse that calls us to stop and focus on God and who He is. It is especially good when you read it as part of the whole chapter.

I love some of the imagery of God being our fortress in the midst of chaotic world events like nations in uproar, kingdoms falling and of mountains falling into the sea.

In the midst of this God tells us to be still and know that He is God. He has an eternal plan. He shelters those who love Him. He is an ever present help in times of need. He has it all under control. Be still.

He tells us that He WILL be exalted among the nations and on the earth. He tells us that He IS will us.

If you are struggling today with chaotic events in your life. Take time to be still and reflect on an awesome God who holds the world and all its events in the palm of His hands.

He is the Alpha and the Omega – the beginning and the end. He is also the God of the in between too.

God Bless,
