"Be still and know that I am God"

I got up at 5am this morning to get ready for my work day. I sipped my coffee as I scratched out a "to do" list for the day. As I wrote down the last minute things I needed to buy and to do, I felt a nervous excitement about the trip - not anxiety, just excitement. As I wrote the list, I felt God say "Be still and know that I am God". It was such a prominent thought at that very moment that I dropped down on the notepad and wrote it down immediately. I finished the list and turned around to the refrigerator to look at the verse for the day on the "40 days of prayer to Africa". The verse was Psalm 46:10 !!!

"Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."

Thank you Lord for speaking to us in special ways! He cares for us and the "little stuff" in our lives.



  1. Funny, because I have had this overwhelming sense of this very verse. My flesh wants to have random panic attacks about details and these last few days I have felt the Lord saying - I am in control - your part is done, sit back and enjoy the ride. God is in control (even when I think I am - lol) and He has plans and details that so far exceed any planning we could ever do! God will be honored through out the world and I am thrilled to be apart of it and "watch" all of you be apart of it this next week!!

  2. That is so great to hear. When we actually carve out the time we hear from God. "Be still", He tells us, and you will hear much. Soooo simple. Thanks Kevin
