Psalms 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God
I woke up this morning with this thought in my heart. It was on my heart but not on my mind. My mind was thinking about today. My mind was thinking about projects long term and short term. My mind was thinking about what I should do first, then second, and so on.
That means not checking the email, looking at Facebook, or turning on the TV. It means to “Be Still.”
I realize this verse is not so much a command but an invitation.
Not so much a duty, but rather a voice that can only be heard in stillness. I begin to be still. I pushed away thoughts and agendas and sit, quietly and still; open to Him who was calling.
God was in the stillness. He was in the quiet. When we rely more on our heart and spirit rather than our mind and agenda, we enter into His world—the place of peace, rest, comfort, love, and relationship.
I set awhile this morning without verbal prayers. I am still. I see Him smile. I see Him cover the earth with His glory. I feel Him cover me with His glory. His presence is in me. Christ’s blood pumps hope and strength through me. I am still.
…and know… convinced, proven, evidenced, experienced, and knowledge without a doubt. Faith for what is not yet seen. Promised wisdom when needed. Knowledge of provision on the path. Absolute trust. I KNOW.
…That I am God.
The almighty, everlasting, all-knowing, merciful, holy God. Your ways are higher than mine. Your callings come with guidance as we walk the path you have chosen for us. You are with me. You are the Father of all. You are above, below, and surround me. I take some time in Your presence to tell myself and God, Thank You.
Today I will be still; take time to be in Your presence.
Right now. Breath deep. Feel with your heart and spirit. You have a Heavenly Father above you with no shadow of turning away. Be sill, and know He is God. Lightnside.
