Be Still. Psalm 46:10

“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen,

I will be exalted in the earth.”

Psalm 46:10

“Be still, and know that I am God:

 

Every saint should realize that God is God. God is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. We need to sit back, be still, and just meditate on the attributes and character of God. We need to understand that the very essence of God is eternal and beyond our human comprehension. “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.” Exodus 3:14

 

So often, we ask unnecessary questions and seek un-attainable answers. It is not within us to understand all of the plan, actions, methods, and work of God due to our finite understanding. “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” Deuteronomy 29:29

 

So, God told us, “Be still, and know that I am God.”

 

“I will be exalted among the heathen,

I will be exalted in the earth.”

 

God has a plan to exalt Himself on the face of this earth. His plan was prophesied in the Old Testament by the prophets and revealed to us in the New Testament. This plan unfolds in the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus and the exaltation of Christ as the Saviour of the world. “I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.” John 17:4

 

The plan of God to exalt Himself continues through the church Age, the 7 Year Tribulation Period, and 1000 Year Reign of Christ on the earth as, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”

 

The plan of God to exalt Himself on the face of this earth will culminate in eternity. “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.” Revelation 21:1-3

 

God knows exactly what He is doing and His plan will come to pass exactly as He has planned it.

 

“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen,

I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10

Brethren,

One of the blessings of traveling is that you can visit many wonderful places. During our last furlough, with some family members that live in California, we were able to visit Sequoia National Forest and see the giant Sequoia trees.

Whisperingsage,

It was a blessing this morning to see your testimony. God blessed both you, your husband, and the church. I just finished reading the Book of Psalms yesterday and I was reminded to give God the praise continually for the many blessings of life, creation, the scriptures, many answers to prayer, and His work among the peoples of the world.

Your thoughts also brought to my mind what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 3:19, "For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness." Paul quoted this from Job 5:13, "He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the forward is carried headlong."

I am sure that others appreciate your thoughts. As you feel led to comment on any other devotions I am sure that your testimony will not only be a blessing to me; but to others.

Brethren,

All of my devotions are written to help all of us in our daily walk with the Lord in this world of sorrow, heartache, troubles, and concern. Please feel free to comment, give a testimony, ask a question, on any of the devotions as you feel led. 

Alan

    • A wonderful devotion and commentary of Joseph Bro. Alan. I have always loved the story of Joseph, not just for the story, but also for the inspiration his life is in so many ways. It is not limited to simply old testament history, but gives us today the inspiration to overcome under even the most adverse of life's situations. While Joseph is certainly a type of Christ, when viewed in this capacity he exhibits the power and determination to use his life situations for God's glory as well as

    • Brethren, I would like to add this note on the interpretation of the two dreams of Joseph  in Genesis 37:5-11.  Alan The Unbelief of the Dreams of Joseph by Pastor Steven Anderson Pastor Steven Anderson does not believe that two dreams of Joseph is fulfilled in the proper interpretation of the symbolism in Revelation 12:1-6. Pastor Anderson states, “So because of that dream that Joseph had, people will often look at Revelation chapter 12, and they see a woman clothed with the

    • "For it is impossible for those who were once [enlightened], and have [tasted of the heavenly gift], and were made [partakers of the Holy Ghost], And have [tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come], If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame." (Hebrews 6:4-6) There will come a point in every person's heart where they will NEVER repent and accept the message of the
