Psalm 46:10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Each day our mind processes about fifty thousand thoughts; we’re exposed to advertising messages, lured by various distractions in one form or another throughout the entire day. It’s a wonder that were even capable of turning it all off and going to sleep at night. I’ve known people that don’t like silence; they want background noise such as the radio on constantly because contemplative thoughts are perceived as an invasion.

When Jesus slept through the storm and the disciples were terrified the boat would break up and sink, He calmed the storm, yelling “Peace, Be Still” and immediately it was calm and peaceful. I was thinking that the storm is similar to a turbulent mind troubled by the current crisis in our life. Psalm 46:10 doesn’t tell us to know God, it says to Know that I am God and there is a big difference. Knowing that He is God, is knowing that He is in sovereign control of our lives every step of the way. When we realize that we can’t calm the storm on our own, were acknowledging that we are finite and that He alone is infinite.

Our peace does not come from lack of troubles; it comes from the one true living God, the creator of the universe, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and, we are stilled by Him like a small child is comforted in the safety of mother’s arms.
