Be Still!

Psalm 46:10-11.

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Psalm 46 is a wonderful psalm. I did not skip the middle because I think it is unimportant. Every word of scripture is important. What I am doing is landing on the verses that spoke very clearly to ME. You may have a different take on the psalm, and that’s just fine. In no way am I dismissing the verses that I have not written about in this or any of the other psalms. Read it through for yourself. Allow God to speak to you however He chooses, to meet your need.

Apparently, my need right now is to just be still. Be still, and ponder on Who God is. Ponder on what He has done and will do. Ponder on the fact that no earthly power can stop His plan or His work. Ponder on this: If it is my time to die, no power on earth can keep me here; if it is not my time to die, no power on earth can take my life. That thought is not original with me. I don’t remember where I first heard or read it. What I do remember is that it gave me a profound sense of peace. Everything, including the power of life and death, is in His hands.

Selah. Think of that!

      1. Kinda sorta. I still have to be six inches from the screen, which isn’t great for face-to-face meetings. I have been working via phone and email, Its a nice thing about this job, to have that option, but I am certainly working toward more face-to-face appointments in the very near future. I only drive up to Bethlehem when I really must. Looks like only once this week.
