“Be still, and know that I am God.”  Psalm 46:10

This is one of my favorite verses.  It’s so short and sweet and yet so powerful.  Let’s dig into its depth for a moment… a quiet moment.

BE

Just be.  Forget about the world for a little bit.  Forget about all your responsibilities and different roles.  This time is for you and God alone, together, in a moment of intimacy and oneness.  Be vulnerable.  Be open.  Be ready to listen.

STILL

Be still.  Forget about the dirty dishes in the sink.  Forget about the pile of laundry.  Put the baby in the pack ‘n play, put on a movie for the big kids, and go find a quiet space for a few minutes.

Focus on your breathing.  Take a deep breath in and then push it out, nice and slow.  Do this a few times.  Inhale peace and goodness, and exhale all the stress, all the anxieties, doubts, and fears.  Be still.  Rest in Him.

AND KNOW

Don’t think.  Don’t presume.  KNOW.  Know with certainty, resting in God’s assurances and promises.  Know that He is with you in this moment.  Know that He loves you and is welcoming you with outstretched arms, ready to comfort you and envelope you with the strength that only He can give.

THAT I AM GOD

Wow.  That statement is so powerful.  “I am God.”  He is omnipotent.  He sees all things, hears all things, and knows all things.  No sorrow is too deep and no burden is too big for Him to carry.

But not only is He God, He is YOUR God.  The One who created the heavens and the earth desires to have intimacy with YOU.  He knows every strand of hair on your head, every freckle, every insecurity, every thought and feeling, every sin.   And yet, He desires oneness with you because He loves you.  You are His precious child.

God’s got this.  God’s got you.  Surrender to Him this moment.  Cast on Him your troubles as you rest in His peace and assurance.

Be still, and know that He is God.
