Psalm 46:10-11
Be still, and know that I am God:
I will be exalted among the heathen,
I will be exalted in the earth.
The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge.
Selah.

Quiet moments are rare
and it can be difficult to find stillness,
but take a few minutes today
to quietly and deeply consider our Lord.
Try not to read or stucy or be distracted–
just be sitll and meditate on the person of Jesus
and all He has done for you.
Think about His birth, His infancy
and the dawn of light rising over
a dark and weary world.
Think about His death and sacrifice,
and the gift of life He extends to you.
Meditate on His resurrection,
His power over the darkness and the grave.
Drink in His presence
and in the stillness seek His face.
~~~Louie Giglio

Let be and be still,
and know (recognize and understand)
that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations!
I will be exalted in the earth!
The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our Refuge
(Our high tower and Stronghold)
Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
Psalm 46:10-11 Amplified Bible
