he-leadeth-me-beside-still-waters-diana-tysonPsalms 46:10 is absolutely one of my favorite bible verses.  God tells us to “Be still and know that I am  God. All nations on earth will honor me.”  

To be still does not mean that everything is calm around you, neither does it mean giving up. It simply means that the storms may still rage, but you are free from the effects of them. Circumstances and people no longer trouble you because you know in whom you have trusted. You are in a place where you no longer fear.

To be still is to know without doubt that God is able to rescue you.  As we learn to be still and trust in God, we come to know and understand that we are God’s children. We are never alone, never unaided and never forgotten. He will come to us. All it takes is for us to be still.

When our mind and spirit are still, our whole body is at peace. We are able to see things with a clear mind, feel things with a pure heart and hear the voice of our Heavenly Father with ears that are open and in tune with his spirit. We will know God because we will be one with him.

So go ahead take a moment to be still and reaffirm that truth of what you know. Go ahead . . . breathe in through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Breathe in. . . And out.

In and out.

In and out.

In and out.

In and out.

Now what do you know?

Know that you have the power of God within you.

Every prayer is answered according to His will.

Everything you NEED you already have.

Everything you need to know you already know.

God is in control at all times and He has great plans for you.
