Psalm 46:10

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

God tells us to “Be still.” He also tells us to “know that He is God.”

Be Still

Not moving or making a sound; deep silence and calm

Know

Be aware of through observation, inquiry, or information.

Have developed a relationship with (someone) through meeting and spending time with them; be familiar or friendly with.

So, we need to “not move or make a sound” and be aware of God through what we have observed in spending time with Him and developing a relationship with Him.

I have talked about my anxiety and fear in previous posts. I have talked about my frustration at not “finding my purpose.” I have also shared my struggles as a single mom raising five children in poverty and struggling to make ends meet on a daily basis. Psalm 46:10 has been a life verse for me. It has been a reminder that I need to sit back in silence and remember WHO GOD IS in my life and in the universe.

We need to make time to sit in that deep silence and be aware of the presence of God and who He is. The question is: who IS God?

God is Faithful

1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

God is Light

1 John 1:5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.

God is Love

1 John 4:8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

God is our Refuge

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. 

God is our Provider

Philippians 4:19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

Challenge:

There are many more verses that tell us who God is and I challenge you to do your own search. Go through the Bible with a notebook or journal and write down the verses on God’s character. When you have finished, sit in that deep silence and reflect on the person of God. Let the essence of who God is sink into the depths of your heart and spirit.

BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD!
