Psalms 46:10 says: “Be still and know that I am God.” The first two words of this verse are often the ones I focus on. To be still is always a good reminder for me. Today, was not different in having God remind me to be still. However, as I was reminded of this important step for today I was also reminded to look at the next two words. Have you thought about what happens when one is still? We will then KNOW. Specifically, we will know that I AM GOD. God is reminding each of us that He is God and we don’t need to think we have to take charge of things. It is much easier to live life if we know He is in charge and we are completing His charge for the day rather than me having to do this.
KNOW is a solid word. No one can take something away from you once you know it. Man can do a lot of things with man, but playing with what we know is something we can only play with. Satan does this all the time. He wants to play with what we know about God. He tries so hard to destroy our faith, our trust, our belief in the God who says, I AM GOD.
No matter how anxious I may be, how the day plays out, or the night time dreams come, these influences will still be brought back to the truth of this simple verse from Psalms–“Be still and know that I am God.”
