"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!
