Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. ~ Psalm 46:10
Do you remember when Jesus commanded, “Peace, be still”?
The disciples were on an angry sea. The ship was violently tossed with waves. Even those on the boat who were experienced seaman, had come to the conclusion that they would die in this storm.
Then they remembered that Jesus was in the boat with them. He was below deck. When they sought him out they asked out of fear, “Don’t you care that we are about to die in this storm?”
There are days, even situations, that will appear to crash down in our lives. During time of great trial, sometimes we forget that the Savior is there. He’s still in the boat with us.
This Psalm also gives a directive.
It doesn’t speak to our emotions or feelings. It does not speak to the situations that surround us. It simply tells us to “be still and know I am God”. Expect for God to be exalted in every life even that you face. Expect that He will triumph over those people, placeas and things which would seem to destroy you.
Take time this morning to simply “be still and know”. Enjoy quiet time, your coffee and power up your day.
