Be Still and KNOW that I am God. Psalm 46:10
“Be” is reality!
My true spiritual condition, now, not one day when I get to heaven. How I am and who I am on the inside—not how I wish I was or how I pretend to be. How I function in the inner-man; how I respond to things happening around me; how I evaluate my priorities, how I approach my responsibilities.
“Be” is the present state of my heart, the attitude of my mind, the choice of my will. “Be” is the fruit of my faith….surrendered to God, trusting His word, receiving His grace, seeking His glory.
Not—be afraid, be frustrated, be exasperated, be perplexed, be confused. Still with Him, still in Him, still before Him, still through Him, still because of Him.
Quiet. Meek. Hushed. Expectant. Faithful. Surrendered. Ready. Attentive. Willing. Watching. Listening for His voice. Resting in His love. Gazing upon His beauty. Beholding His face.
Not—restless, pacing, fretting, anxious. Still in my plans, still in my work, still in my schedule, still as I wait before Him with a quiet heart.
Still with expectancy, still with thanksgiving, still with worship, still with praise.
“Know” is the assurance of faith, the nearness of His presence, the communion of His Spirit, the sweetness of His fellowship.
No guessing. No wishing. No, “I think so?” No, “I hope so.”
To “Know” is to know that you know.
Know Him! Know His character; know His nature; know His word; know His voice; know His heart; know His mind; know His will; know His kingdom; know His love.
Know Him through relationship, know Him through companionship, know Him through ownership. Know the heights of His grace, the depths of His compassion, and the breadth of His mercies.
