Be still, and know that I am God. I know
I sometimes do. Countless times I've sat down to try to be still and holy. It's never worked very well. Only recently when I was studying this passage did I realize my misunderstanding of the text: the original
Hebrew root of Be still doesn't mean "be quiet"; it means "let go" That's very different, don't you think? Let go and know that I am God! Let go of trying to control your spouse! Let go of your worry about your finances! Let go of your unforgiveness! Let go of your past! Let go of what you can't control-and rest in the knowledge that God is in control!
