He says, “Be still, and know that I am God.”
(Psalm 46:10 NIV)
Other versions put it this way:
“Let go of your concerns! Then you will know that I am God.” (GW)
“Cease striving and know that I am God.” (NASB)
Being still means to come to Him, let go of whatever it is that’s weighing us down, relax and leave matters with Him. It’s not always easy for us to do this, but it can be done. It’s much better when we stop trying and allow Him to be in control. Only then will we be able to acknowledge that He is God with whom all things are possible and who can meet all our needs. Take His instruction to heart and be still today. You’ll be glad you did.
Be still and know that He is God.
