“Be Still and Know that I am God”

A reminder today–a day I have all the excuses in the world to not read Scripture–and it is because of these excuses that I pause and read Psalm 46.

Psalm 46:

Not exactly sure what ‘Selah’ means, but today I think I get it.  I need it.  We need it.

Last week, a friend of mine posted his thanks for the shelter that God had blessed his family with during this polar vortex.  I too am thankful for the shelter, but believe this is so much more than a material blessing.  When I hear theology that thanks God for a home, a car,…stuff, then the inverse then must be asked.  If God blesses some, then what about those without a home? Or with inadequate shelter? Ask these questions in light of the Matthew 5: 3-10, or Luke 6: 20-26?

We all weather storms.  When you hear everyone’s story, underneath it all is a story of suffering.  This is the shelter we have in God.  That in the storms, the polar vortexes, in life–may we find God is there.  God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble.  May God be in the midst of all our cities.  May we be still (and know).  Selah
