October in the Psalms: Be Still

As a high energy (and sometimes frenzied) person, I love the command in Psalm 46 to “be still.” The singers writing this psalm declare that God says, “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” When I read this, I remember God’s sovereign control. I remember that nothing thwarts His plans. I remember my job today involves resting in God’s love, power, and divine purposes. Be still. Assume the deepest kind of soul rest because of who God is. When I cannot, I ask God to help me understand stillness and that posture of complete trust and hope in Him. Maybe our whole life involves this journey toward divine stillness.
