Psalm 46:10, Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
The Jewish translation reads: “Desist, and learn that I am God, supreme over the nations, supreme over the earth.”
In other words, STOP and see that He is God. Recognize him and His majesty! The definition of “desist” is to cease or abstain, so He is trying to tell us to just stop and allow who He is to surround us. It is so easy to get frantic looking for answers or trying to avoid what is going on in life, but God is saying that what you really need is to just chill for a minute and allow Him to work in and through you. Do what He puts before you and then chill, stop going at 90 miles an hour trying to find an answer or to escape the issues. There’s really nothing in life that you truly control and the harder you try the more lost and frustrated you will become. Give it all to Him.
Life is full of uncertainties, but God is constant and He never changes! He loves you and He wants to walk with you and guide you, but you need to stop and acknowledge Him and who He is. Open your heart and mind up to His leading. Let go of your agenda and ask Him for His. God has dreams and plans for your life. He created you with a purpose in mind, but you have to seek Him and His plan He is not going to force it on you. So, when the road is rough and you can’t seem to find your way, trust Him. Ask Him to shed His light on your path. Ask Him to give you His confidence and strength. When you can’t see His plan, trust His heart. When fear stands in your way, dismiss it and recognize that He is God, supreme over everything and He’s got this. His love for you is immeasurable and His plan is waiting. Pour yourself out and allow Him to fill you with who He is. Seek Him with your whole heart. Stop trying to fix everything in life yourself. He already has the plan. Will you allow Him to guide you and work His plan out in your life so you can truly know that His best is yet to come?
