Meditation: Know

We can be sure of few things in this life. We know that we will have struggles. The righteous and the unrighteous face many of the same storms. We also know the One that “even the winds and waves obey (Luke 8:22-25)”.

“Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea (Ps. 46:2).”

This verse encourages me because the earth gave way beneath my feet and the mountains of my faith seemed to be falling into a sea of depression. If I believed that faith is about how I feel, I would have quit.

My feelings focused on the raging storms in my life, engulfing me in darkness.

The faint Light of knowledge reminded me that God is who He says He is. He is faithful and true. His Good News is real. We must KNOW the truth of the scriptures in order to calm the winds and waves of our feelings in times of distress.

Resting in the knowledge of God’s truth calms the fear in my heart, so that I can say, “Therefore I will not fear!” Today, I am meditating on God’s command for me to cease striving to restore myself, and know that, through Jesus Christ, He has restored me.

The Lord Almighty is my with me!

Meditation: Be Still and Know from Psalm 46

Be still, and know that I am God.

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 the waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.

Be still, and know that I am I God.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall.

Be still, and know that I am God.

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

Be still, and know that I am God.

The Lord Almighty is with us: The God of Jacob is our fortress. He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth.

Be still, and Know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations:

I will be exalted in the earth.

The Lord Almighty is with us.

Be still, and know that I am God.
