SAA Notes

Psalm 45 has strong links with Revelation 21. Hebrews 1:8 quotes this verse and applies it directly to our Lord Jesus Christ. Psalm 46 is a beautiful psalm of great compassion. It gives comfort and strength especially to those in mourning or sorrow. 46:5 came to fulfillment on that glorious resurrection Sunday. Zion was helped!

SJA Notes

“Be still, and know that I am God.”

This is a clear and strong call to us. In the busy-ness and bustle of our lives – Be still.

But this is not just a stillness, an absence of thought or a waiting for some spiritual inspiration.

Be still and KNOW that God is God.

He is I AM.

This is a call for us to meditate with purpose and intent, our direction and focus on our God.

The psalmist encourages us to be still from that which is outside us, to be still and think about God. Dwell on Him. On His word, who He is, what He has done for us.

This is an important and always-relevant reminder for us.

* Dear Lord God,

Please help us today to be still. And onwards Lord, to be reminded each day of who You are, what You have done for us,

And that You are God. Full-stop.

Please help us to know this deeper and more fuller each day.

Amen.
