Be Still and Know That I Am God

Ps 46:10 - Be still and know that I am God, I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth!!!

What a wonderful verse to ponder and consider. Be still - this means you. Does this describe your life today. Most people are sooooo busy with life we don't have time to be still. There's to much to do in our fast paced society and so Little time to do it. God is calling us to be still and to know that He is God. I was looking up some of the meanings of still and the words that stood out to me were to let drop, to be quite, relax, withdraw, refrain, etc. Wow this is how i want to be in my life. Think about all the world running around stressed out no peace or rest for their souls.

Ps 4:4 - Stand in awe and sin not, commune with your own heart on your bed, and be still

The greatest way to be still according to this verse is to commune with your heart with God. This is how we get still by communing with God. Commune in the Hebrew means to speak and in this context to speak with God. In true communion their is a two way relationship, you speak with God and God speaks to you. Adam in the cool of the day talked or communed with God. What a picture of how we should be with God. On your bed to me speaks of when ever you wake and when ever you go to sleep we should be still. In the morning we speak so we can make it through the day in the evening we speak because of what went on during the day. When we are still and commune with God, we will get to know God and God will be exalted among the heathen and in the earth.

The other way to commune with God besides your personal time with Him is to commune with other believers or with the Body of Christ. What a way to know God in a greater way as we share our lives with one another. So be still today!!!!!
