Be Still And Know That I Am God – Psalm 46:10

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! “

Sometimes the best thing to do is stand still. If the winds are blowing to the maximum and the storm is upon you, your attempt to escape it could lead you into more danger. It is human nature to try to soften the blow,

Be Still

hide from the inevitable or duck the responsibility. Our flesh is weak but our spirit must remain strong. Yes, it certainly takes more strength to stand in a storm than it does to run from it. In running, you assume the responsibility for your betterment. In standing, the Almighty assumes the responsibility of your salvation. Standing requires faith! After doing all you can do, STAND! Where can you run from your present affliction? Trouble has an uncanny way of finding us because the devil lurks under every rock where we might hide. Stand in faith and be still. Let trust and peace overpower fear, anxiety and worry; know in your head, heart and hands that He is God. The Lord made the heavens and the earth. He made all beings and will judge them all. He speaks above all storms and tells them to BE STILL. Did not Jesus, when awaken by his disciples in the midst of a storm, speak to it and told the storm to BE STILL! All storms are below the heavens and they all end at some point. Big storms also bring the best sunshine when the storm passes. So, let go and let God speak to your faith, so that YOU can stand still and speak to your storm. Know that God, Almighty is on your side because your faith in Jesus has made you a child of God.
