Day 26: Be Still

Most people can quote the beginning of Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God…”

The New American Standard version of the Bible states it a little differently:

Cease striving and know that I am God…

I love that. Doesn’t striving adequately describe what we do all day every day?

The second part of the verse is oft left unquoted but I think it’s a beautiful ending to the command to cease our striving.

Cease striving and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

We can be still. Stop striving. Settle down. Wait patiently. Because God is glorious and will be glorified. Amen.
