“Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!” (Psalm 46:10, NKJV)
Psalm chapters 46-48 express praise to God for delivering Jerusalem from an enemy invasion. One example of this deliverance was on the occasion of Assyria’s invasion of Judah during the reign of Hezekiah.
No matter what troubles we meet, whether from earthquakes, floods or wars, we who trust in God are not overcome by them. We have inner calmness, likened to a cool refreshing stream that flows gently from God. The Almighty God is still in full control, and he gives strength to his people. God’s power can smash all opposition. Therefore, opponents should stop fighting against him and realize that he is the supreme God, the supreme ruler of the world.
Let us cease from aggression and murmuring against God’s justice and providence, cease from labor for a season, that we may reflect on the severity and goodness of God and understand that he is the Fountain of power, wisdom, justice, goodness, and truth in all the earth! Be still! God is in control!
