  1. “Be still, and know that I am God”
    This Scripture has such a sense of confidence and provides calm.

    As my world seems to be crumbling around me (from time to time) this call from Scripture is: Don’t flinch in faith! Stand still because of what you know about God. So today and hopefully many more to come I hope to

    1. Behold the works of God that I may enjoy a calm confidence in him who gave us his Son. Stop and take notice of all those details around you. As the small stuff is just as important as the big stuff.
    2. “Shall he not also with him freely give us all things?” Paul reasoned (Romans 8:32). Psalm 46:10 encourages us to reflect on what God can do in the face of what we are unable to do. So I will be ok.
    3. God’s past provides calm for my future. For me to know this not intellectually but spiritually and emotionally more each.

  2. ~BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD~ (Psalm 46:10)
    I have a bracelet with this verse on that I wear almost all the time to remind me of the many ways I need to put this verse into practice in my life. Here are 3:

    1. “BE STILL” I am such a type A personality that sometimes everything in my life gets rushed. I have to remember to slow down and be with God always…every moment of my life. It’s the only way I know I can really live and love well.

    2. “AND KNOW” Sometimes I get afraid that I disappoint God all the time…that isn’t the way our God is at all! I have to always remind myself that nothing can separate me from my God or His wonderful, perfect love.

    3: “I AM” This always remind me of the song “I am” by Mark Schultz. I particularly love the bridge and final chorus:
    Before the earth (I am)
    The universe (I am)
    In every heart (I am)
    Oh, where you are (I am)
    The Lord of love (I am)
    The King of kings (I am)
    The Holy Lamb (i am)
    Above all things

    Yes, I am Almighty God your Father
    The risen Son of man
    The healer of the broken
    And when you cry
    I am your Savior and Redeemer
    Who bore the sins of man
    The author and perfecter
    Beginning and the end –
    I am!

    That’s all I need to really meditate on sometimes to realize that my God is really all I need :)

  3. I have known this verse since I was a child. However it still hasthe same meaning to me now as an adult but different prayer needs. I read Corrie Ten Booms “the hiding place” when I was young and I learned the importance of memorizing scripture. To me this means “Be still and know that I’m God” 3 ways to practice this;
    1)In my quiet time I must literally make it a quiet place where I can HEAR His voice.
    2) I also need to stop moving and sit once a day (no sweeping etc) and be still long enough to feel his presence and Know it’s His voice I hear
    3) Pray to know His voice qbove all others. As you have written. Listen to the Coachs voice
    In Him. Kim

  4. 1) I need to literally ‘BE STILL’ and need to trust that God is GOD. I need to reflect on how this Bible verse relates to my life, how the fact that God is GOD, applies to my life, in my current situation (my husband and I are separating, not my desire).
    2) Need to ‘Be Still’ Let Go, and LET GOD
    3)Need to make quiet time my priority!!!

  5. Ruth in London UK says:

    1. Take time to sit at His feet and listen to Him as He speaks through His Word
    2. Bring Him my worries, burdens and cares – those things I cannot fix myself – and give them to Him and wait to see what He will do
    3. When I see my hubby and adult children struggling with things that only the Lord can change, encourage them to ‘Be still and know that [He is] God.
    4. (is a 4th allowed?] Take time to experience the wonders and beauty of the world God created, and in that moment, be still in His presence and know that He is God – and worship!

  6. 1. When I start to fix my mind on worry about my mom in a nursing home, I remember how much she loved Jesus and it brings peace to my soul.
    2. We are trying to sell our house and it gets really frustrating when we don’t get offers … I know that I know that God knows where we are in our finances and know that He will make all right … it brings peace to my soul.
    3. I do not fear illness because I know that God is in control. I do what I have to do and God takes care of the rest.
    I pray daily in my quiet time … I know that He is my only peace. I can only be still and know that He is God.

  7. 1. Spend quiet time with God everyday.
    2. Keep my eyes on God through all situations.
    3. Trust Him fully with all my heart.

  8. As I read this, I started to sing the verse aloud and my 18-month old joined in with her version — a perfect reminder of:
    1. Take time DAILY to shut out all distractions and seek Him.
    2. Take time DAILY to shut out the world and focus on my husband & five kids
    3. Take time DAILY to just slow down and enjoy the moment, taking in all the blessings He has given me.
    How refreshing it is to say it aloud and to accept that “He is God. I am NOT in control. Wow, that’s a load off of my shoulders.” Now if I can just hang on to that each day. Blessings to you all.

  9. 1. To make a beautiful place to have quiet time. For my mind to slow down enough to take in, my quiet time place can’t be cluttered.
    2. To make a priority each day to have a quiet time.
    3. To have the same time set apart each day for quiet time.

  10. 1. Start my day with Him daily.
    2. Carry Him with me daily.
    3. Thank Him for my day daily.
