“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

30214_Be_Still

We live in tumultuous times! If you turn on the news or look at the latest headlines, it is enough to make your head spin—especially now in the midst of a very important Presidential election cycle and with an open seat on the the Supreme Court. The future of our country is uncertain. It is important for us to remember to pray for our country, and pray for our leaders.

We need to remember that even when life seems out of control or crazy to us, it is nothing that takes God by surprise. God is still on His throne.

I just love Psalm 46—it reminds us that God is our fortress. It begins by saying,

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,

though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,

though its waters roar and foam,

though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,

the holy habitation of the Most High.

God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;

God will help her when morning dawns.

The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;

he utters his voice, the earth melts.

The Lord of hosts is with us;

the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah”

Since God is our refuge, there is no reason for us to fret or worry about what the future holds. Instead, we should be still. Trust that He is God, and know that He is in control.
