Be Still

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: “Be still, and know that I am God.” That’s a popular phrase from the Bible—one that you’ve probably heard before. But did you know that verse was written in a context a lot like ours? It’s actually from Psalm 46, which says, “The nations raged; the kingdoms were moved” (v. 6). It describes great international turmoil.

But God is involved in the world. Verse 9 says, “He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two.” That’s a promise that one day God will bring an end to all war.

So what are we to do in the meantime? Let go. Don’t try to take control or figure everything out. Sometimes we just need to turn off the TV news and listen to what God has to say through His Word. “Be still, and know that I am God.”

When was the last time you were still before Him?
