“Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10 NIV) is the verse that has come to define my life through COVID, as I’m sure it has for many others. Written during a time of crisis, the Psalm was meant to serve as a reminder to not fear but rather know and trust in the One whose power can put an end to all turbulence. And for me, it has also come to mean less striving and more watching God at work. In an age where we feel the need to “do,” we’re also asked to just “be.” Not a call to be passive, but after we’ve done our part, we need to trust God to do His. And this is where I need to be still and know who He is! “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth” (v.10).
