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!
“Be still, and know that I am God.” 46 v10
What a wealth and depth of meaning is packed into this verse!
It is a call to us, in the busy-ness of our lives, to be still.
But not just stillness alone, where other thoughts might creep in.
Be still, and KNOW that God is God. I AM. Our Lord and King and Saviour – God above!
It’s a call for us to meditate, which sometimes can seem like a strange word, more linked with eastern religions.
Meditation on God and His word is GOOD!
So the psalmist, and God, is calling us to be still, and think about Him. Dwell on Him. On His words, His laws, His precepts and statutes.
This is a great reminder for us.
Let’s be encouraged to be still and KNOW that He is God!
