Monday Meditation~Be Still and Know

 
 
Psalm 46 (NIV)
 
God is our refuge and strength,
An ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the
earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
 
There is a river whose streams make
glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High
dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
He lifts His voice, the earth melts.
The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
 
Come and see the works of the LORD,
the desolations He has brought on
the earth.
He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth;
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear,
He burns the shields with fire.
"Be still, and know that I am God'
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."
The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
 
 
Whatever our day...or week...or month...or year holds, we must remember that "the Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress." He is "our refuge and strength." We need not fear. We must have faith...trust Him...be still and know that He is God.

How timely! "Be still and Know that He is God" turned out to be our theme at our GriefShare event last night. He does work on our behalf for our good if we just slow down our own busy efforts, stop trying so hard to understand and control, and just allow Him to be God. Thank you, Kristie!
