Be Still and Know

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. – Psalm 46:10 (NIV)

In today’s society, we are so accustomed to being busy that we consider it to be a noble thing. We even go to to the extent of bragging to each other about our long to-do lists and how hectic our schedules are. Taking a moment to be still has become far-fetched and foreign to us. Yet scripture says that God is telling us to be still, and know that He is God.

It is easy to be fearful when we are faced with challenges and troubles in life. I believe that in these times of uncertainty, God is telling us to cease striving and realise that He is on our side. He is urging us to stop worrying and trying to do things by our own strength but to allow Him to do what only He can do.

It is in our stillness and not in our busyness that God will be exalted above our challenges and enemies. It is from a place of rest, where we will see His greatness and know that He is God.

When we stop trying to fix our problems and answer our own prayers, God can take over our situations. But as long as we are still toiling, they are in our hands to resolve.

May we be still in the midst of confusion and uncertainty as we face this pandemic and come to realise that God is well capable to help us. Then, His peace that surpasses all understanding, will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Be still!
