“Be still, and know that I am God…”
Psalm 46 begins by declaring that God is our “refuge and strength’’, always present in trouble. The psalmist praises God for His power and describes His almighty actions to protect His people when overwhelmed with trouble. In verse 10 God responds by telling the people to be still and know that He is God.
We too face troubles that seem to overwhelm us. Stresses are everywhere — family, relationships, jobs, finances. It is easy to let the problems of the world overtake us. It easy to become burdened down with worry and doubt.
But, we too are called to be still and recognize the almighty God. God will speak peace to our hearts and minds in those still, quiet moments that we give to Him. He will calm our troubled thoughts and He will provide the refuge and strength we need to face the world again , all because He loves us.
