Thoughtful Thursday: Be Still

In this season of social and political divisiveness, maintaining a sense of peace can be difficult, but it’s exactly when we need to find some peace the most.

We often think of the verse “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10a) as a reminder to take time to rest in God, but it’s so much more than that. The verse comes at the end of a Psalm that describes God as our refuge and defender in times of trouble.

It is a reminder of where to turn in the middle of unrest.
It is a reminder that the battle is not ours.
It is a reminder that even when “nations are in an uproar” God will prevail.

Take some time to read Psalm 46:10 in context and be reminded that God is bigger than any of our current circumstances. My hope is that it will help you to “be still” and in a world that tries to steal your peace.
