Psalm 46:10 10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
Be still for we are limited in what we can do. Our text on today encourages us to reflect on what God can do in the face of what we are unable to do.
God’s people are commanded to “be still” in this verse.To be still spiritually not physically. A call to spiritual serenity, even in the storms and fires of life. A call to submission to the Word of God for it is there where we will find peace, protection and rest.
When we learn to be still, we can rest in the knowledge of God’s Word, knowing that His Word is true and that it will never return back to God void for He will bring to pass whatever He speaks. Isaiah 55:11 so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
To be still also means to not be disheartened or weak, but to take courage in God. Psalm 100:3 Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are His people, the sheep of his pasture.
As chaos, deception, envy, hate, violence, distrust, etc. all seems to rage in the world all around us, the call from God to the believers on today is “be still”! Do not waiver in your faith, but trust God for He declares to you and I on today that He is God. Isaiah 45:5a I am the LORD; there is no other God.
As believers in Christ, we have incredible spiritual gift on the inside of us called the “Holy spirit” that cannot be taken away or destroyed. When life gets you down, remember to thank God for the benefits of the Holy spirit that we enjoy daily because of our relationship with Christ.
Put your hope in God, not in man nor our abilities. We are warned against putting our trust in man. Let’s listen to psalm 146:3 Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there, for man can not save you.
When the earth shakes, water roars, mountains quake, nations rage, war begins to rise, persecution on every hand, rebellion, deceit and crafty operations all around, “be still and know that God alone is God. In spite of all the noise and chatter around you “be still” and know that God is God.
Psalm 23:4 “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for God is with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”
To hear God’s voice, we must be quiet and be still. It is in the heart and soul of man where God speaks. Listen for Him on today for you will hear Him speak concerning you.
Romans 8;35-39 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Psalm 27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
Whatever is thrown at you today, “Be still and know that God is God”! You already have the victory through Christ Jesus.
As you “be still” on today, remember this: Isaiah 54:17 – No weapon formed against you shall prosper,And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
God shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,”Says the Lord.
Be still and know that God is God!
I love you all with the love of Christ.
