First, it’s not easy to simply be still, is it? We live in a world that seems to be in perpetual motion. All of us have more to do than we ever get done. It is not in vogue to "be still." Successful people aren’t viewed as people who are "still." Rather, they are people who are active. We have this idea that if we’re not doing something, we’re not being productive.
God, our Father, says the same thing to us. "Be still. STOP!" Stop working, stop moving, stop talking – STOP!" The first hurdle we face is to get our bodies to be still, to literally stop moving, and for most of us that does not come easy.
But there’s more to being still than just stopping the body movement.
In order to be still before God, I have to have that inner focus which centers on God and God alone, which brings me into that place where he is for that time my whole universe and no extraneous or conflicting information is allowed to interfere.
If you’ve been neglecting that important principle, it is likely the reason that you don’t know the power of God’s presence in your life. Until you take time to be still and know God, you won’t experience his all-sufficiency, the power of I AM to meet all your needs. Will you today begin to be still and know the great I AM who is waiting to be gracious to you?
Let’s focus on the last of those eight words: "Be still, and know that I am GOD."
