Wednesday Wisdom – Still


“Be still, and know that I am God…”

—Psalm 46:10 (NKJV)

I bet you’ve heard that one before. We’ve probably all said, “Just be still…” But I love the NASB version because it goes a little deeper. It tells us to “cease striving” — the root of the Hebrew that literally means: “to sink”.

Don’t you feel like that sometimes? I know I do. If I was walking down a street in Paris and saw this open chair at a little cafe, you’d better believe I’d sink right into it. I’d put the phone down, close my eyes… and just breathe. And that’s just it: what we’re told here is to sink. To press in to God (not slink away) when we’re threatened. We’re to fall deeper into His embrace when busy overtakes us, fear shakes us, and the burdens threaten to break us.

Sink, this mid-week. Press in. Fall deeper. May we cling to God in the midst of a harried week, and know who He is at the end of it.
