Thoughts on Psalm 46

Tonight I read Psalm 46. Many of you probably know Psalms 46:10 “Be still and know I am God.” The preceding verses talk about a bunch of terrible things that happen in life ranging from mountains collapsing to nations falling. The beginning of the chapter says not to fear because “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” As a whole I believe this chapter is saying that when bad things happen we are to be still and know that the Lord is God. He is in control and will take care of us. We are not to worry or fear. We are to still our hearts, minds, and bodies and know that the He is God.

So tonight or right take some time and just be still and know that He is God.

I pray that you are able to trust God with whatever circumstance you are in. He is your strength and fortress. He cannot be shaken.
