Be Still Daughter, Be Still

“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10 I love it when the Lord leads you to the right Word at just the right time. I started a short 5 day study called “5 Psalms for 5 Days” and it began with Psalm 46. Oh how many times has my Poppa told me to be still and let Him work, be still and listen to His voice, be still and let Him fight for me, be still… and here I find myself again. Be still daughter, be still. I smile as I sit in the silence of my room listening to the hum of the fan and allowing the stress of the day to simply melt away. Be still daughter, be still. I read verse 1 making it personal, “God is MY refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” It doesn’t matter what is going on around you. Your world can be shaking, you can be knee deep in water, but God is still in control. I LOVE verse 9, “He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.” There is nothing that is beyond His control. All we need to do is be still and know He is God! ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

Psalm 46

1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

4 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.

7 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

8 Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth.

9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.

10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
