Be still and know that I am God – Psalm 46:10

“Be still and know that I am God”. What a powerful verse. There is a place in stillness that we know God. Without stillness we will not know God. As we allow God to calm us and remove the noise and interference of the world, the eternal opens up. Being quiet before the Lord spiritually, mentally, or physically brings focus and clarity. Things arise that have never been seen.

Stillness cures spiritual blindness where we don’t know what to do or where to go. It gives vision. Meditation within the stillness brings forth revelation and wisdom. The practice of stillness is difficult in a world that demands of our time and attention. Media of various kinds try to capture much of the substance of life which is time. If we want to know God we must spend time with God which is also called waiting on the Lord. Waiting requires faith & patience and faith & patience is required to obtain the promises of God (Hebrews 6:12). When it all comes down stillness is about resting from distractions & striving and just being with the one who truly loves us. His Love makes us come alive and we come out of the secret place with God in peace and confidence.
