Psalms 46:10 TPT
10 Surrender your anxiety. Be still and realize that I am God. I am God above all the nations, and I am exalted throughout the whole earth.
As I was spending some time with the Lord recently, I felt drawn back to Psalm 46:10. This is a scripture that I have loved over and over again throughout my life’s journey. It reminds me that “busyness” can get in the way of my friendship with God.
When I looked at this scripture again, I felt very moved by the wording of the Passion Translation. The words, “Be still and realize” really jumped off the page into my heart. My take away is this: In order for me to have a greater realization of Who God is, I must be still. It’s that simple!
I looked up the word “realize” and here is the definition of this common word:
become fully aware of (something) as a fact; understand clearly.
I want to understand more and more about God every day and I am asking Him to help me to be still so that I can REALIZE Who He is! I encourage you to take some intentional time soon to just be still with God
Prayer: Lord, forgive us for the places where our “busyness” robs us of a greater realization of Who You are. Teach Your Church how to come into Your presence in stillness so that we can be more fully aware of You. Thank You for welcoming us to Your throne room. Thank You, Jesus, for dying for us so that we are able to come boldly to the throne of grace to find mercy and grace for our every need. Thank You for loving us! Amen.
