Still Learning How to Be Still
Stand still? Sit still? Lie still? I shift from foot to foot or wriggle in my chair or flip back and forth in bed every two minutes, searching for a more comfortable position. At the time these words were written, God was speaking very pointedly to His battle-prone people. Okay, then. He will.
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Exodus Now I know that the LORD is greater than all gods: for in the thing wherein they dealt proudly he was above them. Psalm Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth. I will be honored by every nation.
Meaning Two: Peace! Be still! Mark 4:39
I remember hearing this verse often in Bible studies back in college and reading it in a daily devotional. Psalm , in context, is a warning to all of the armies of nations who oppose God and his people. Know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth. This is a battle that you cannot win.
The imperative gives a solemn duty to those in a covenant relationship with God—Israel in the Old Testament, but today, it is given to Christians cf. Galatians This word is found in various forms in the Old Testament, with different shades of meaning. It refers to that which is slack, or to let drop, or in some instances, to be disheartened or weak. When used of a person as opposed to some inanimate object it often has a negative connotation. Those who are disheartened are commanded to take courage.
Be still and know that I am God — What is its origin? It may be a matter of finally saying we trust Him. This will open the door so that we may experience the fullness of all God wants and has for us. After all, He is our Creator and has a perfect plan for us when we let Him orchestrate it. First, we must know that God is God, the one and only Supreme Being who created all the heavens and earth Genesis
