There is something about the stillness of the morning that I love. No other noise but the fan swirling overhead and the warm presence of the Holy Spirit. Psalm 46:10 slips into my thoughts, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
The definition of this word know, is to perceive or understand as fact or truth; to apprehend clearly and with certainty; to have established or fixed in the mind; to understand from experience or attainment.
“Be still and KNOW that I am God!”
Even when the answer alludes you and you’re desperate to know what to do; be still and know. Jesus took the little and made it much, how much more will He do for you? Be still and know. When the report of the enemies advancement into your territory looms loudly before your ears; be still and know.
Without the knowing, there is no peace. Don’t allow the things you face to erase the peace of His presence in your life. Be still and know. If you don’t know, you won’t have peace. If you don’t know, stress will crush you. I KNOW He is able to keep me. I KNOW He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above what I can ask or imagine. I KNOW He is in me and His abiding grace washes over my life. I KNOW.
Do you know? Do you understand as fact or truth, clearly and with certainty? Is He fixed in your mind? Have you experienced His goodness, grace and mercy? Philippians 4:9, Paul says this, “Keep on doing all the things you learned and received and heard from me. Do the things you saw me do. Then the God Who gives peace will be with you.”
This week, may you focus on Who you know, not what you see.
