Psalm 46:10...

"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
God is within her, she will not fall God will help her at break of day.

Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; He lifts his voice, the earth melts.

He says, Be still, and know that I am God;

The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress." ~Psalm 46

One of my all time favorite verses- "Be still and know that I Am God." In the midst of difficulties we face in life, no matter what they look like; Earthquakes, car wrecks, fires, floods, unexpected funerals, ear infections, falling towers, flat tires, sick children, stubbed toes, etc.
The command to be still does not come from a lack of troubles. It comes from a steady trust and recognition of God's Presence among us.

So if your world is crumbling around you, God says, stand still — not because you understand or accept what is happening. Be still because of what you know about God.

God, Thank You for being with us wherever we are suffering.

In His Dust,
