“Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10).
The original Hebrew word for “Be still” does not mean “Be quiet.”
The root for the Hebrew word for “Be still” means “Let go,” “release,” “chill out,” “loosen your grip.”
There are things happening in our world that are beyond our control. They are frightening. They are maddening.
It’s in the midst of that maddening chaos we are reminded – be still, let it go, release, chill out, loosen your grip.
- Let go of trying to control everything
- Let go of worry
- Let go of fear
- Let go of anger and frustration
- Let go of unforgiveness
- Let go of your past
- Let go of the things you cannot change
Let go. Chill out. Loosen your grip on things. And see what God will do.
God is sovereign. God has never ceased to be sovereign. God is good. God’s got this.
Loosen your grip.
God’s got this.
