Be Still…

Be still and know that I am God.

That verse from Psalm 46 is known, loved, and quoted by many, myself included. It’s comforting and helpful in the midst of the chaos around and in us. That’s IF we actually do what it says. And that essentially means doing nothing.

I was recently introduced to a new song by Amanda Cook that is based on this Psalm. It’s entitled “Still” as it’s specifically based on Psalm 46:10. Hearing these lyrics impacted me in a powerful way. I was reminded that the “and know that I am God” part of verse 10 holds a lot of weight. In those still moments, we can trust God to be who He says He is and we must remind ourselves of who He has proven Himself to be…

  • Creator
  • Healer
  • Comforter
  • Ever-Present
  • Almighty
  • Strength
  • Promise Keeper
  • Provider
  • Sovereign
  • Miracle Worker
  • Liberator
  • Sustainer
  • Refuge
  • All-Knowing
  • Loving
  • Good
  • Perfect Father
  • Righteous Judge
  • Merciful

Take a moment and let that sink in. He is all of these things and SO MUCH MORE… for you! Now, let’s not neglect that second half of verse 10:  I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

Because God is who He says He is, that makes Him worthy of being exalted and worshiped over and by all creation. Our response to the revelation of who God is in those still moments must lead us to worship. This includes, but is certainly not limited to, music. But given my passion and calling to serve you in that way, I want to share this song with you.
