“Be still and know (recognize, understand) that I am GOD.” (Ps. 46:10 Amplified Bible)
As I write this blog, I’m listening to Elevation Worship’s new song “Here Again.”
“I’m not enough,
unless You come,
will You meet me
Cause all I want is
all You are,
will you meet me
“Just what does that have to do with being still?” you ask.
Because it is in the stillness that we understand we are not enough. Unless He comes and meets us in the stillness.
Merriam-Webster defines “still” as
uttering no sound: quiet;
subdued, muted, calm, tranquil
free from noise or turbulence
Don’t you love those words? There is such peace in the word tranquil. It gives me a visual picture of a lake—no ripples, no movement—just a calm, placid lake. Serene. Quiet. Still.
In the midst of our crazy-busy day, may we find pockets of time where we can sit at the feet of Jesus. Where we can be tranquil, calm, free from noise or turbulence. Where we can be still and know that He is GOD.
