"Be Still and Know That I am God"

"Be still, and know that I am God" A few weeks back I was reading this Psalm. (46) I have been meditating on this now for weeks.

Something had happened once again to cause me to worry and fret. And this word stood out. Actually God had supernaturally revealed a situation to me a little while before that and when it was confirmed, I started to worry and wonder what I could do about it as mothers tend to do.

I don't think that was God's intent. I think He was reminding me in this verse that He is God! In other words, He meant I should stop trying to be God! He was saying "Be still"! Kind of hard for me!

When I look at the entire psalm there were great problems all around and in the middle of all of this He is our strength and refuge and there is a river, a place of peace and refreshment. Aaaaa what a relief!

The Hebrew word for "still" is "to let go" or "release". I need to let go and let God be God! Then I get to see what He is going to do!

Home in His Presence

"One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple." Psalm 27:4

This is one portion of scripture that I have always loved. It is such a beautiful thought, dwelling in the house of the Lord.   Have you ever read or thought about the verses surrounding this verse?  They talk about fear, enemies, attack, war, trouble...

Do you remember when you were a child how you would always feel safe when you would reach home?   There was always that safe feeling when you would go in and close the door.  It was a safe place or at least should be.  Our homes our our safe places.  That's how it is in our Father's home too.  He hides us from all troubles in His tabernacle.

Our safe place is in His presence
