Title: Be Still and Know.

Scripture Reading: Psalm 46:10 (NIV) – “He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.’”

God urges us to take a moment to cease, be still, and recognize His dominion among the hustle and bustle of life. God’s omnipotence and our need to put our trust in Him are powerfully emphasized by the words “Be still and know that I am God” from Psalm 46:10. This devotional will discuss the importance of creating a calm environment in our life and feeling the serenity that comes from knowing God.


Reflect on the words of Psalm 46:10 and consider what it means to “be still” in the presence of God. In a world filled with noise and distractions, stillness can be challenging to attain, yet it is essential for our spiritual well-being. Being still involves quieting our minds, surrendering our worries, and resting in the assurance of God’s sovereignty and love.

We make room in our life for God to speak to us, console us, and give us new strength when we purposefully carve out times of silence. We experience unfathomable serenity in the stillness of His presence—a peace that keeps our hearts and minds safe in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7). We may let go of our worries and problems when we lie down in God’s presence because we know that He is in charge and that He will never abandon us.

The instruction to “be still” calls for an active faith in God’s omnipotence rather than a passive one. It entails giving up our desire to influence events and submitting to God’s ideal plan and timing. Even in the face of uncertainty and adversity, we may have faith that He is working everything out for our good and His glory because we recognize His greatness and majesty.

It’s not always simple to be still, particularly in a society that prizes activity and output. However, practicing quiet is a spiritual practice that can fortify our faith and enhance our relationship with God. Making time for prayer, meditation, or just spending time in God’s company a priority puts us in a position to hear from God and accept His direction for our life.


Heavenly Father, help us to embrace the discipline of stillness and to find peace in your presence. Teach us to quiet our hearts and minds amidst the noise of life, so that we may know you more deeply and trust in your sovereignty. May we rest in the assurance of your love and faithfulness, knowing that you are always with us. In Jesus’ name, amen.

May you find rest and renewal in His presence, knowing that He is always with you, guiding and sustaining you each step of the way.
