Be Still and Know (L)

Be Still And Know

Each time I start to believe the lie that I have the ability to control the circumstances of my life, God reminds me that He and He alone is in charge of me. “Be still, and know that I am God” (Ps. 46:10).

Here are several examples:

  • I was driving alone 70 miles an hour with transfer trucks on both sides of me when my tire blew out! Miraculously I made it to the shoulder. While trying to decide what to do next, a car drove up behind me. A kind family stopped and changed the tire. I was back on the road in ten minutes. “Be still, and know that I am God” (Ps. 46:10).

  • This summer has been dangerously hot. For three weeks, I have been dealing with my insurance company to get my air conditioner fixed. Today, I was told it would be three more weeks before the situation could be rectified. While trying to decide what to do next, a friend showed up at my door with two new window air conditioners. “Be still, and know that I am God” (Ps. 46:10).

  • The Bible college where I taught closed its local branch. My job search proved futile. While trying to decide what to do next, I discovered that my income tax return had been prepared wrong for years and I was due money back from the government. “Be still, and know that I am God” (Ps. 46:10).

I thank God that He constantly reminds me to be still and trust him. Share an experience when God has shown you He is trustworthy.

I am sure you have similar experiences.
