“Still Know, Know Still” By Kirk Hunt
Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
Psalms 46:10 NKJV
Please also read Psalms 46:1–11
In these days of unending motion and turmoil, Scripture commands us to be still and know. While knowing requires some level of contemplation, that is not point of this verse, or chapter, of Psalms. Do you have a complete, instinctual and unshakable knowledge of God? Do you truly understand His unending power and absolute authority over all creation, especially your personal affairs?
As a Christian, you should have a deep and absolute knowledge of the fact of God’s power and authority. You should no more question the absolute greatness of God than the existence of gravity. After all, gravity is just one of many concepts He casually made up while creating the universe.
Christians do not seek the rules for their own sake. We pursue the Rules-Maker. What understanding we glean from the world simply magnifies His majesty.
Stop and take a few minutes to re-consider the immeasurable length, depth and breadth of our omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent God. Reserve in your heart and mind an unmovable and unshakable knowledge of who He is and what He can do. In that paused moment decide, once and for all, how that knowledge will influence your everyday thoughts and actions.
God allows us to act with a great level of freedom. Do not confuse God’s restraint and allowance with a lack of power or authority. His grace and love is so great He does not make us, or them, robots.
Pause for a moment. Think about Him. Know that He is God
Think: I should stop and remember that God is a great and powerful God.
Pray: “Lord, help me to remember just how big you really are.”
