Be Still

 

 I try not to break the rules, but merely to test their  elasticity.       ~ Bill Veeck   10 “Be still, and know that I am God!
    I am exalted among the nations,
    I am exalted in the earth.”
      ~ Psalm 46:10  Look at the entire Psalm.  When I read this scripture, I heard that still small voice saying “Be still, and know that I am God!” Just like a beloved, trusted parent.  Look at what it follows! Not only is it a comforting piece, but it was written as a song.  What are you going through?  You already know that God knows.  Listen to God’s voice sing to you, it will be okay.  Just be still, and know…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nUuBjz4VhcThe Fray- Be Still Because of Him, Linda 

Psalm 46

God’s Defense of His City and People

To the leader. Of the Korahites. According to Alamoth. A Song.

1 God is our refuge and strength,
    a very present[a] help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
    though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
3 though its waters roar and foam,
    though the mountains tremble with its tumult.Selah

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
    the holy habitation of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of the city;[b] it shall not be moved;
    God will help it when the morning dawns.
6 The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter;
    he utters his voice, the earth melts.
7 The Lord of hosts is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our refuge.[c]Selah

8 Come, behold the works of the Lord;
    see what desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
    he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear;
    he burns the shields with fire.
10 “Be still, and know that I am God!
    I am exalted among the nations,
    I am exalted in the earth.”
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our refuge.[d]Selah
