Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
LORD Jesus, we come before You this day to give You thanks for all that You have done in and through our lives. Help us, O God, we pray, to be living testimonies of what You are able to do. Use us to reach out to the ones who are in doubt and in need of a Savior who is the only One who can save them from their sins. Enable us to place the needs of others before our own needs and give us the confidence in You that You will provide. In Jesus’ wonderful name we pray. Amen.
In yesterday’s post I shared a little bit about the importance of giving praise to God in the midst of our troubles. Today I want to lead you to do another step: Be still and know that He is God, the LORD of hosts.
I had to learn to willfully praise my Savior while going through tough times. Looking back to past hardships, that hasn’t been one of the hardest things for me to do. In fact, the more I focused on Him and the more I praised Him the more Strength He has become for me.
What I have found a lot harder to learn and do was to be still; and this is such an important step.
I need to remember, and so do you, precious sister, that it is through the quiet times spend with God, that we will find a calmness which surpasses all understanding. He will not only give us His Peace but, most of all, He will guard our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)
Don’t ever underestimate the power of this Peace. During a time of great trials and sufferings it is hard to keep your mind set on things above. Your heart can easily get out of tune. That’s when you have the greatest need, beside lifting up your hands and praises to God, to be still and know that Christ Jesus is your God and Savior.
Be still, and know that He is the everlasting God.
