Psalm 46:10a-Be still and know that I am God.
Stillness of mind is what's being commanded on today. A rest in the SPIRIT with confidence of who our God is and what He is able to do on our behalf.
Are you troubled in your mind? Is the ocean of your life rising? Is the storm in your life raging and the thunder seems to continue to roar without any relief in your life?
God's command to you is "be still" in your mind because if you belong to Him you have no need to worry nor fret for as He promised to be with Moses, He promises to be with us also.
People of God, "be still" for God declares that He, the Great "I Am" is God and besides Him there is no other.
Yes, the Lord our God give us an assurance on today that we can take courage in Him, regardless of what is going on in our lives.
The command to the people of God is to be "still". This does not mean stop and do nothing. But what it does mean is to be still in your spiritual position with Christ. Be still spiritually. Stay calm! Trust God and obey.
Yes, we must still attend to our daily activities and live our lives, but we must remember that we can't go it alone for we NEED God to come along and help us.
We must learn to quiet our minds in confidence of the Word of God and tell our fearful and anxious thoughts to shut up and be still.
The next time you have fearful and anxious thoughts that are raging in your mind like a violent storm, do as Jesus did and rebuke it by speaking what Jesus spoke when He said to the story sea, “Peace, be still.”
Regardless of what is happening in our lives the Lord our God says "I am God".
Remember when Moses ask God whom shall he tell the people of Israel who sent Him and God's reply in Exodus 3:14- God said to Moses, “ I AM WHO I AM.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel: ‘ I AM has sent me to you.’
In other words, let not your heart be troubled. Be still in your hearts and mind and know that "I AM" God.
God, who is the God of the universe declares His name to Moses as " I am", the Eternal God for there is nothing impossible for Him!
In the midst of a world that is contrary to the Word of God, we as the people of God can find courage and hope as we reflect on what our God can do in life's situations and circumstances that seems to be beyond our control.
Be still people of God because of what we know about God, what He has proven to us over and over again and most of all be still because of what His Word tell us about His Sovereign power and authority.
We are reminded in the Word of God on today that "I AM" IS God and He is in control of all of the world's affairs, regardless of what our eyes see and our ears hear.
People of God, be still, let go, surrender whatever is rattling your mind and give it to God. Let today be the day that we ALL give up trying to fix our lives and let God do it His way. No longer will be put faith in ourselves, but in the Lord our God who declares to us on today that He alone is "I AM", the Lord our God.
It is only when we have truly surrendered and let go of trying to orchestrate and fix our own lives and issues of life now and in the future apart from God is when we will find peace and be delivered from the things that torment us the most in our minds.
Romans 12:2-Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Be still! Let the focus of our minds be on things above.
Philippians 4:8 And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
Colossians 3:2-4 Set your affection on things above, not on things on earth. 3 For you are dead, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life shall appear, then you also shall appear with Him in glory.
The mind is the battlefield that the enemy uses to do his best work against us. The mind is what God uses also to do His greatest work in and through us if we will let Him.
Regardless of life's trials and tribulations and what it throws at us or against us that is contrary to the word of God, EVERYTHING, INCLUDIJNG MAN will one day be brought under subjection to God's authority and give an account for our lives.
Romans 14:11- For it is written: “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
We all have a choice on today to either listen to God who knows all about us and what is best for us or listen to the voice of the enemy who is trying to not only destroy our minds, but also our souls and our future.
In this world, there are numerous of reason to fear and focus on all the chaos going on around us, but God call us to "be still", knowing that He is God. He will soar with us above it all if we would "be still" and let Him be God in our life.
Soaring with God does not mean a trouble free life, but it means safety and security under the wings of God while we are in it. In other words, He protects us in the midst of them when he surrender our lives to Him alone.
Today, there is a call from heaven to the people of God to "BE STILL" and know that "I AM", the Lord is God of the universe.
Our God is the Sovereign God of the universe. A Mighty Warrior who is GREAT in battle.
BE STILL! The Lord our God is a very present help in trouble.
