Be still - Psalm 46:10

17:52




So, I have finally got around to sitting down and writing a blog post. I usually try to post at least once a month, but it just didn't happen last month. I got so busy doing a lot of different things and didn't get a chance to actually sit down and write something. This time of year is just such a crazy, busy, hectic time of year! With Christmas (for those who celebrate Christmas) just around the corner, we sometimes get so busy running around doing errands, buying gifts, going to parties, visiting family, and the list could go on!! Which led me to this verse, in Psalm 46:10,  "Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth."

The first thing that stands out to me in this verse is actually one of the smallest things in the verse! And that is the comma after the words "Be still." It is amazing how much meaning a simple punctuation mark can bring to a verse! The verse to me says, "Be still, {pause, reflect, rest}" Taking a "comma" in our day to reflect and spend time with the Lord is so important! 
The verse goes on to say, "and know that I am God." God wants us to be still so we can know Him, and hear His voice. Just being still is often something we neglect to do, especially as the end of the year draws near. We get busy, forget to spend quiet time with the Lord, and we forget to spend time in His presence. I am as guilty of this as the next person! I get so tied up with doing things, that I forget to just be still and know God. God wants us to be still, and know that He is God.
I hope you will be encouraged to remember to find some time to be still at this busy time of the year. 


God bless!
Hannah
