‘Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalm 46:10
Jesus taught us to pray with reverence when He modeled for us ‘Hallowed be Your name”
(Matthew 6:9). This phrase is a petition, not a proclamation. A request, not an
announcement. ‘Be hallowed, Lord.” Do whatever it takes to be holy in my life. Take
your rightful place on the throne. Exalt Yourself. Magnify Yourself. Glorify Yourself.
You be Lord, and I’ll be quiet.
‘Be still, and know that I am God‘ (Psalm 46:10 NIV). This verse contains a command
with a promise.
The command? Be still. Cover your mouth. Bend your knees.
The promise? You will know that I am God.
The vessel of faith journeys on soft waters. Belief rides on the wings of waiting.
In the midst of your daily storms, and in this storm that has swept over our country
and even the entire world, make it a point to be still and set your sight on Him. Let God
be God. Let Him bathe you in His glory so that both your breath and your troubles are
sucked from your soul. Be still. Be quiet. Be open and willing.
Take a moment to be still, and know that He is God
Be still and allow God to be hallowed in your life.
