Being Still in the Storm

“Be still and know that I am God.” (Ps. 46:10)

I have a framed copy of this verse in my home office. In the midst of a hectic life when at times more things seem to vie for my time, energy and effort than seems realistic, there’s a peace in this verse. There’s the knowledge that all the activity and demands on my life don’t have to consume me. It’s okay to set them aside, to just be STILL and to know, not just in an intellectual manner, but in the depths of my soul, that HE is GOD.

Knowing God makes all the difference. Admittedly, the demands of life don’t go away. Bills still need to be paid, taxes still need to be filed, the house still needs to be cleaned, the paperwork piles still need to be gone through—but knowing God puts all the demands, all the activity, into a different perspective. Suddenly I can be at rest in the midst of a whirlwind. I can be still and know that He is God.
