10 “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10
I don’t know about you but this verse is a hard verse to live out. How many times have you wanted to act, react, or move things along in your life when God is telling you to stand still? For me the number is countless! But God clarifies His command that we stand still by stating “I am God.” He desires for us to stand still based on the facts and the knowledge that we have about Him: He is God! Everything lies within those three words! You can stand still and not move prematurely because He is God! Because He is God He has everything under control! Because He is God He already knows the outcome, He’s already planned the deliverance, He’s already set His purpose in motion! All YOU have to do is stand still!
Standing still requires that you put your faith into action and your fear behind you! Has God shown Himself strong in your life before? Has He rescued you from a life laden with sin and wickedness? Has He placed His Holy Spirit within you to guide and comfort you in times of stress and uncertainty? Yes, so no matter what lies in front of you, no matter what or who discourages you, you can Be Still – knowing that He is God! He will be exalted, He will be praised. He is victorious and so are you!
