David's psalms carry us through the diversities and adversities of life. He touches all the seasons from elation and praise to persecution and despair. This psalm, however, shows us the power.
"Be still and know that I am God." Be still. Quiet your heart; cease striving. It all adds up to getting your heart and mind quiet enough to hear His small whispers clearly enough to heed them.
Be still... Even when chaos seems to reign, God is still in charge. He is the salvation we need so desperately.
Look at His awesome power. Look at the detailed care He takes in creation. Look at His power over the antions and affairs of men.
Truly every knee shall bow before Him. Praise His name.
Thank You for speaking to us in the stillness. Help us to quell our fears and calm our excitements to be able to hear You better.
In Jesus' most precious name.
