"Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10a
Perhaps you are already familiar with this verse from Psalms that encourages us to allow for times of quietness and reflection in order to seek God and be able to hear His voice. God wants us to know Him, and even tells us that stillness is part of the pathway to know that knowledge. However, He leaves the choice of following that path up to us.
In contrast, the latter part of that same verse is as follows: "I will be exalted in the nations. I will be exalted in the earth." (Psalm 46:10b) The same God who gives us the freedom to choose whether we will know and worship Him individually, emphatically states that the destiny of all creation and nations will be to exalt Him.
Will you choose to spend some time in stillness today becoming better acquainted with the Lord of heaven and earth before whom every knee will one day bow?
