Trust God

26 July 2020
‘Be still, and know that I am God.’

Psalm 46:10 is a verse which is often quoted. But when we hear a verse a lot, it can sometimes lose its meaning for us. So let’s take a look at it in detail: 1) ‘Be still.’ We can find being still really challenging, especially as our culture tells us that to be worth something we need to be busy. It can be hard to experience moments of stillness and silence with all the distractions we face today. Our to-do lists seem to just keep growing, and people can make more and more demands on our time. But God wants us to take time to ‘be still.’ This isn’t an excuse for us to be lazy; it’s a way of recognising that we need God’s help and guidance in our lives. Being still means surrendering to Him by slowing down and waiting. We need to ask Him to reveal His will; then ‘be still,’ and trust that He knows what He’s doing. 2) ‘Know that I am God.’ This means acknowledging that we’re not God. When we don’t obey God, consult Him, or accept His timing, we remove Him from the throne of our lives and end up trying to take His place. In Psalm 46:10, God goes on to say: ‘I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.’ God wants us to acknowledge who He is, and put Him first in our lives. It’s important for us to have vision and goals for the future, but these should be God-given goals. When we don’t stop and acknowledge that God’s in charge, we can find ourselves being distracted by lots of different things which aren’t actually His will for us. Will you ‘be still’ and know that He’s God today?

 

What Now? 

Take 20 minutes out of your day. Use 10 of those minutes to be still and quiet in God’s presence. Use the other 10 to praise and worship Him.
