Psalm 46:10

Psalm 46:10
Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

People ask

"How can I KNOW there is a God?"

"How can I be certain the God of the Bible is the one True God?"

"How can I be sure?"

Right there, in His word, He gives us the answer.  It isn't an easy answer.  It is a true answer.

It begins with His instruction to us to Be STILL.

No clamoring or clattering or asking endless questions or making noise or moving about - no doing ANYTHING.

Hold STILL.

Be STILL in your physical body.

Be STILL in your mind.

Be STILL in your heart.

Once you are STILL, know, recognize, acknowledge, understand, grasp, fathom, perceive, appreciate, experience and learn that HE IS GOD.

He is exalted among nations and in the earth.

Watch for it, look for it, search for it, seek it and see.

When you are still from your rumblings and ramblings and insistence on making your own philosophies and doctrines and theologies and notions and ideas; when you are STILL from all of this He reveals Himself.  Once He reveals Himself you will know that you know that you know that He is the one and only TRUE GOD.

His Word gives clues of Who He is, but cannot possibly contain the fullness of the God and Master of the Universe.

Other people have understanding but their language and oratory skills, as good as some are, cannot possibly reveal the fullness of all the He is.

Only He can truly, fully, completely and without question reveal Who He is; and He will show you, when you are STILL.

In the STILLNESS you will see and experience knowing God; you will recognize His handiwork and glimpse His sovereignty over all the earth.

Peace that passes all understanding will be yours.  Assurance and certainty fills the heart.

You will know that He is God and that You are His workmanship, wonderfully and fearfully made in His image according to His purposes and to receive and give away to others to His Great and Unconditional Love.

Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

It all begins and ends with HIM.
