“Be still, and know that I am God…” (Psalm 46:10a)
The word of the Lord admonishes us oftentimes to cry out to Him, to shout praises to His name, to praise Him with a loud voice, to enter His courts with praise and thanksgiving, to rejoice with a loud voice, and in the quiet times we are admonished to be still.
Being still implies just that, being still. Stop the movement both physically as well as the mental churning of thoughts that we get so preoccupied with. It doesn’t say not to think, it says to be still. Being still is most assuredly being quiet before Him for the purpose of listening. Be quiet before Him to meditate on Him and His goodness. Reflect on His grace that He has bestowed on you. Know Him in quietness before still waters.Being still requires us to stop talking and begin listening. If you’re talking, you’re not listening, and if you’re not listening, you’re not learning. Learn from Him and learn to lean upon Him for He is good and His mercies are new each morning.Being still implies rest.
Rest from worry and rest from anxiety, be free for whom the Son sets free is free indeed. Relax in the breath of God. Take your self out of time and into Him and breathe…just breathe.Our Father, Who knows no time or space, is waiting in the secret place for you. Go to Him there and be still in His Kingdom. Rest on Him, relax on His bosom, allow Him to hold you and comfort you. Quiet your spirit in His Presence and in humbling trust, know that He knows and cares for you.
