Today's Scripture
Be still, and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10 NIV

Thoughts for Today
These eight words found in the Psalms speak volumes about putting God at the center of our lives.

Be still....

Stop worrying. Calm down. Don't be afraid. Stop trying to figure it out by yourself. Stop trying to make things happen. Slow down. Take a deep breath. Forget the money crunch. Take time out from the pressures at work. Stop striving. Stop talking ... and listen.

Know that I am God....

I know you. I know your needs. Nothing surprises me. I am the Creator of all things. I care about everything that concerns you. I am love. I am peace. I am joy. I am holy. I am sovereign. I am all-knowing. I am all-powerful. I am eternal. I am faithful. I am merciful. I am gracious. I am the King of kings and Lord of lords. I am your Father, your Daddy. I am the same yesterday, today and forever. I love you with an everlasting love. I will never leave you nor forsake you.

Consider this…
When we are willing to be still ... and to know that he is God, he will become the center of our lives. And everything else we do will revolve around him and all that he is.

Prayer
Father, teach me to set aside all my anxieties and fears and "to-do's" and to truly be still before you. Help me to know you better, to begin to grasp your greatness, your love and your mercy. In Jesus name ...
