Topic: BE STILL, AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD
Bible Reading: Psalms 46:10
📖10….”Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”
🔥It is heart warming to see how protective and caring our God is. Throughout Psalm 46, God’s power and capabilities are highlighted. God was not a help in time past, but a present help during today’s troubles, and also our refuge and strength… Psalm 46:1. The psalmist went on to allay our fears from natural threats, such as mountainous challenges, roaring rivers and raging heathens. Finally, in verse 10, God said we should be still, and know that he is God. This is the greatest statement of assurance that the secured can ever receive from his security.
🔥🔥After Satan infiltrated humanity through the first couple in Genesis 3:1-6, mankind became filled with agitation of how to overcome the curses upon mankind through the earth. Man forgot that the LORD is both GOD and God. As GOD, he is the father of all; both the Son and the Spirit. But as God, which means Elohim, he is the three in one eternal Creator. So, even with the attendant depravity of mankind after the fall, God was confident to create a Saviour out of His Word. He promised to defeat the serpent by the same woman it had deceived; using her seed to bruise the serpent’s head (Gen 3:15). Because, even when the serpent was beguiling the woman, God knew what to do, just like His Son knew in John 6:6.
🔥🔥🔥God expects man to always know Him as Elohim (the ever creating God), and to also trust His abilities. In Psalm 46:10, the believer is instructed by God to always operate based on his knowledge of the embedded ability in his name, Elohim, which means three-in-one Creator. The greatest of his creation was making His Word flesh, to save man from his fears. But each time man fails to totally trust in God’s abilities, he reminds him with, Be still, and know that I am God (Creator of solutions). So, our God is I AM. No matter the heathen’s rage, trust Him for instant creation of solutions…Isaiah 43:19.
🙏Dependable Father, may my dependence on you ever help me to conquer all forms of negative agitations, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Ancient of days, cause my being your image and likeness to make my words to produce solutions to my problems, each time I speak, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Dear Lord, use your I AM power to still me against unbelief and doubts, as you supply my instantly created helps, in Jesus’ name.
