“Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
Have you ever had a verse just come up from EVERYWHERE? That’s how Psalm 46:10 has been over the course of the last month. When that happens, I know it’s time to . . . be still and pay attention.
It started the week of VBS when I was privileged to teach Preschoolers. What a delight to plant God’s Word in the hearts of such good soil!
Our theme was Shipwrecked but we were talking about the Armor of God. There were several memory verses for the week but we chose to emphasize Psalm 46:10. We talked about it throughout the week without any indication that the seed had taken root. That is until one of the mother’s posted her 3-year old quoted the verse perfectly. (She had not said the verse anytime I can remember throughout the week.) Mom’s comment was, “…first ever memorized verse.” My heart was full and my eyes were leaking tears of joy. I know the power of God’s Word hidden in a heart (Psalm 119:9,11)
At a women’s retreat last week, we handed out tea bags with a “TEA” word and verse references. One of the verses that got double duty was Tranquili-TEA, you guessed it, Psalm 46:10.
Then last Sunday, my two-year old granddaughter was running around while getting ready to leave for church. Her dad told her, “You can’t just run around, you need to be still.” Without missing a beat she said, “And know. That I. Am God.”
Here’s my challenge to you, take time this week to be still but make it purposeful. Be still, listen. Take a verse from the Bible and ask God to help you know God. Did you know that Bible is God’s revelation to people of Himself and His incredible plan of salvation? There is so much noise that surrounds us daily. Turn the volume down on the other noise and “Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10. Take your next right step to move in God’s direction.
If I can help you with your spiritual grown, please let me know. I’d love to hear what you hear.
