Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! – Psalm 46:10 NKJV

Yesterday, I drove two and a half hours to and from a meeting.   The “school” was scheduled to last four hours.  It lasted thirty minutes.  Yes, I drove five hours for thirty minutes. Oh, I also arrived and hour early because I allowed for traffic delays.  When I happily exited the building, the most beautiful sky was waiting on me. I could have been mad and grumbles that I wasted 6.5 hours of my time.  Instead, I decided to be still and thankful that I did not waste 10 hours of my day.   

As a Christian you have heard this 2000 times, well, here it is for the 2020th time.  “Be still” is the Hebrew word, raphah, meaning:

Let it go. 
Let it fall. 
Throw it down.  
Drop it. 
Relax your grip.
Abandon it. 
Forsake it. 
Be quiet. 
Cease and desist.

Be still in your home.
Be still in the COVID pandemic.
Be still in illness.
Be still in worry.
Be still in fear. 
Be still in all you have to do.
Be still in the civil unrest.
Be still in social media
Be still in the media.
Be still in all the voices.
Be still in the election.

I encourage you to KNOW that God is God!  He has not changed. He has not lost power. He has not gone anywhere.  He will be exalted. He will rise up among the nations. He will be exalted.  He will rise up in the earth.  Be still.  Let it all go.  Loose your grip on all that you are holding so tightly.   Let go of the things that move your faith, confidence and security in the Lord.  

Hear God in all His authority say: “BE STILL.  Know. that. I. AM. GOD!”

One thought on “BE STILL. LET IT GO. DROP IT.”
