Psalm 46 is an amazing passage. Verse ten is a particularly popular one among people that feel overwhelmed. Psalm 46:10 calls us to be still and know that God is God, sounds simple enough. Just stop whatever is stressing you and trust God. I don’t think it’s that simple. It takes an act of the Holy Spirit for us to be still in the midst of the storm. Pause for a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you through these profound truths. Remember, it’s not about escaping the storm. It’s about God’s faithfulness in the midst of the storm. Our hope is rooted in who God is and what He is doing. It’s not dependent on us. The commands we are called to live out in this passage are all rooted in God’s redemptive work. Take a look at this amazing Psalm. Think. Ponder. Pray.
