Be Still

“Be still, and know that I am God.” – Psalm 46:10


In a small village in Italy, there’s a tradition where, once a year, the entire village goes silent for a whole day. This day of silence isn’t due to any religious observance or national holiday; it’s a cultural practice to remind people of the value of stillness and reflection in a world that’s always moving. During this day, even the children play quietly, the usual hum of daily life slows down, and people take time to reflect, meditate, and appreciate the stillness.

This tradition mirrors the essence of Psalm 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God.” In our fast-paced, always-connected world, stillness is a rare commodity. We’re constantly bombarded with noise, information, and the pressure to be perpetually productive. But this verse reminds us of the importance of finding moments of stillness to connect with God.

Just like the villagers who pause their lives to embrace silence, we too can find peace and a deeper understanding of God when we quiet our surroundings and our minds. This stillness is not about inactivity; it’s about creating a space where we can be more receptive to God’s voice and presence. In the stillness, we can find clarity and reassurance, recognizing that God is in control, even amidst life’s chaos.

In moments of anxiety, stress, or overwhelming circumstances, remember the power of being still. It’s in these moments of quiet that we can truly ‘know’ God – understanding His nature, His promises, and His control over our lives.


Reflection Questions:

  1. How can I find moments of stillness in my daily routine?
  2. What distractions do I need to eliminate to focus more on God?
  3. How does being still help me to understand and connect with God better?

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, in the rush of life, help me to find moments of stillness to know You more. Teach me to appreciate the quiet, where I can hear Your voice and feel Your presence. Grant me the wisdom to recognize the importance of stepping away from the noise and busyness to reflect on Your goodness and sovereignty. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Our Beliefs

We believe in the one true God (Yahweh), creator of all things spaciotemporal and heavenly, known and unknown, visible and invisible. We believe in Jesus the Christ as the only begotten son of God and the very incarnation of God, who was truly born of, and wholly with, human flesh. We believe that Jesus suffered under Pontius Pilate, was brutally beaten, and mercilessly pierced and killed upon a cross for the purpose of redeeming sinful humanity. We believe that the grave could not hold our savior, for upon the third day he rose from the dead and thereafter met with his disciples and ascended into heaven. We believe that it is only through this person, Jesus the Christ, Son of the Living God, that humanity is redeemed from sin and given eternal life. We believe…
