Be Still and Know
"'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

"The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah"
Psalm 46:11

Verse 10: "'Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."

Warren Wiersbe says: "'Be still' (v. 10) means 'take your hands off, relax.' God knows what He is doing, and His timing is perfect (v.5). When it is all over, He will be exalted (v.10), and you will be blessed."

George Santayana said: "Fanaticism is redoubling your efforts when you have forgotten your aim!"

"Be Still." Take your hands off and let God be God. Submit. Surrender. Give up the struggle.

Let's learn the secret of backing off.

Vance Havner said: "Most of us would live by faith if we knew that the rewards would be forthcoming inside of two weeks."

Havner also says: "IT IS IMPORTANT that we hear. It is important what we hear. It is important how we hear what we hear."

Verse 11: "The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah"

As we prepare to sing our hymn of worship, let's meditate on 2 New Testament passages that are appropriate.

Ephesians 6:10, 11: "Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil" (NASB).

2 Timothy 2:3, 4: "Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier" (NASB).

Let's sing that beautiful hymn "More About Jesus":

More about Jesus would I know, More of His grace to others show;
More of His saving fulness see, More of His love who died for me.

More about Jesus let me learn, More of His holy will discern;
Spirit of god, my Teacher be, Showing the things of Christ to me.

More about Jesus , in His Word, Holding communion with my Lord;
Hearing His voice in ev'ry line, Making each faithful saying mine.

More, more about Jesus, More, more about Jesus;
More of His saving fulness see, More of His love who died for me.

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
