A Thousand to One


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 

Every time I read Psalm 46:10 my heart hears this message: Be still, and know Me… really know Me. 

I believe this goes a step beyond knowing He is God—it’s a step toward knowing Him as God of your life and getting to know Him in close relationship. It starts with knowing and acknowledging that He is God. Then it grows into knowing Him in the intimate relationship of Father and child.

This has been a life changing message for me, as I’ve learned to be still and spend time with my God. My heart greatly desires to obey this message, because I know the benefits that come with it. My prayer is that I will consistently and diligently choose to be still and know Him throughout my entire life.

Being still brings me into His presence and causes me to know His nearness. As you continue to draw near to the One who is God, the One who has shown you grace and mercy through His love, you will also discover that the relationship you share takes on new meaning.

Don’t let all the duties, activities, and distractions in life rob you of this precious relationship. Knowing Him is life. Make time for Him. Let Him bring your thousand thoughts down to one. 

Be still and know Him. Be still and know He is your God.
