“Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10)
Have you ever tried being still? It’s hard to do! When I was talking to God about that one day, it felt like He was telling me that I was going at it backwards: I was trying to be still so I could know Him. He wants me to know Him so I can be still.
“When you know that I am God, you will be still.
Behold Me. Look at Me. See Me for who I am.
You will find I am much, infinitely much, bigger than finances, accidents, cancer, relationships with toxic people, or any other problem you face.
I am God. Just stop for a few minutes and think about who I am. Being still is the only possible response to My glory.”
It seems that the secret of being still in God’s presence is beginning to understand who He really is. When we stop to view Him with amazement and wonder; when we accept the mystery of what we do not know of Him; and when we begin to glimpse His holiness, power, and love, the issues of our lives fade away and awed stillness is our only possible reaction.
Try changing your focus from your restlessness to God’s greatness and see what happens. It helps me a lot!
