Psalm 46:10 begins with: “Be still and know that I am God…” God tells his people to stop worrying and scurrying about, fretting about our lives.
Focus on God.
For one minute.
Give God your full attention and devotion, without saying a thing. Just sit before him and know that he is God.
“I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted on the earth,” the verse continues. Knowing God, and then being consumed with him is the heart of Christianity.
Jesus said, “And this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent” (John 17:3). Knowing God and his Son, Jesus, is the point. It’s easy to get distracted with the stuff of life–even the stuff of church life–and miss the point.
This is our vocation as Christians: to be distracted, overcome, obsessed, entranced–indeed drunk with God. So take a minute. Be still. He is God. He will be exalted in the earth. Allow all that you know about him to flood your mind and heart. Take one silent minute and give it to God as fully as you can.
