Be Still

Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”


Being weak and trusting God in difficult situations can be the most I ever ask of myself. It is hard to stop moving and dodging the punches that are being thrown at me. What if….just for a moment….. I stopped trying to defend myself and prove myself and hold still long enough for God to defend me? What if I stopped wanting all the glory and I gave it to God? What if I stopped controlling it all and really see what God’s plan is? There isn’t anything that I can do better than God can do.

It’s time to know the promises of God, it is time to trust in His word and know Him. It is time to be still. He is with us.

Psalm 46
1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.

2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,

3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
Selah

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.

5 God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.

6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

7 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Selah

8 Come and see the works of the LORD,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.

9 He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear,
he burns the shields with fire.

10 “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”

11 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Selah
