I love this verse!!!! I had a day where I. didn't know what to do or think even though I know my God is in control. I woke up about 2:30 in the am with a heavy heart even caught myself crying in my sleep a couple times.... But God and only God told me to get your phone and open your bible app I got something for you to read and there it was Be Still and Know that I am God be at peace, no weapon formed against you shall prosper I'm here and I hear your cry. After reading this verse this morning my heart is more at peace. When we think we are having it hard someone else is having it harder so just trust in God and all will work out. In Jesus name Amen.

This is the rock beneath my feet. Be still means do not move, do not worry, do not do any thing, God will take care of everything, we need to allow him to manifest his love and glory on us. May God bless everyone who reds this message.

I really appreciate the commentaries...Jesus is with us, and sometimes life get overwhelming..but praise God for his goodness, faithfulness, and unconditional love. Ps. 46:10 is one of my favorite scriptures. Thanks.

God is still on the throne working on my behalf when I put His word out there. God and I working together !!!


Godwin Mbata's comment on 2015-03-07 14:23:30:

Trust in God He is in control of all things and will be honoured at the end. Every kneel should bow to Him and every tongue confesses that Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father.


Joan's comment on 2014-12-30 08:54:07:

In the peace and quiet of the day , God spoke to my spirit saying, "Be still and know that I Am God. " God wants us to know that know matter what we may go through in this life, He reigns forever and ever .


REV.HAMILTON PAGAN, M.A.'s comment on 2014-10-11 08:19:23:

War and destruction are inevilable,but so is God 's final victory.At that time,all will be still before Almighty God.How proper,then,for us to be still now,reverently honoring Him and His power and Majesty.Let us take each day time to be still and to exalt God our Father in the name of Jesus Christ His Son.

It never fails, when I read this scripture I feel better instantly. This is the lord letting me know to be at peace and acknowledge who he is. He is the almighty God and he wants us to know!


Annie's comment on 2014-09-30 02:11:08:

Simphiwe Mtyobile's comment on 2014-06-09 02:22:04:

This verse helped me a lot to find peace with myself, trusting and knowing Him alone as my refuge.


Toni's comment on 2014-05-28 11:58:49:

I most certainly needed this verse today. I can not let things worry me, but must understand without any doubt, that God is God. He is in complete control of everything. He is who He says He is the great I am, and the Maker and Creator of the Heavens and of the Earth. God is in control of my life, so I need to be silent just stop and meditate in the goodness of the Lord. Sometimes I want to take things upon myself to handle, instead of letting God work things out for me. Instead, I must trust and believe in Jesus, who died for me, and know my Savior will work all things out to my good, if I am patient, quiet and just believe. Be still and know I am God. Amen Lord.


MockingBird's comment on 2014-05-28 09:41:24:

This is a very powerful verse. Not to be taken lightly. Stop whatever I am doing and meditate on the word of God. God will be exalted among the heathen and He will be exalted in the earth. God is God !!!!! Praise God for His unspeakable gift I cannot sufficiently tell of God 's greatness for He is above all that I can ever ask or think !!!


VP's comment on 2014-05-28 07:50:20:

I was just thinking yesterday if I should make a move regarding my job, house, and the state where I live, and today I found this word like if God is telling me not to worry about any of this, to be still and to let him do his job. God bless everyone, we are so fortunate to have God on our side.


Francis Casper's comment on 2014-01-24 14:39:10:

He(GOD) wants us to know, for He has revealed Himself throughout the scriptures that HE alone is is God and theres nothing too hard He cant do. He is the Almighty.


PG's comment on 2013-12-06 08:27:41:

It should be taken literally: if you still yourself, quieten your thoughts and stop interfering and striving with effort, you will experience directly and with clarity that "I am" is God. Where before "you" struggled, in its place is experienced the will of God / the universe acting through you, if you still yourself and let it.


Dianne Cassell's comment on 2013-11-03 06:43:32:

He mentions heathens. Definition of heathen in the Merriam Webster: Definition of HEATHEN
:an unconverted member of a people or nation that does not acknowledge the God of the Bible.
Also found on the web: heath·en
a person who does not belong to a widely held religion (esp. one who is not a Christian, Jew, or Muslim) as regarded by those who do.
synonyms:pagan, infidel, idolater, heretic, unbeliever, disbeliever, nonbeliever, atheist, agnostic, skeptic; archaicpaynim
"the evangelist preached to the heathens"
The verse says "IN" the earth and not on the earth. So this leads me to believe that there are spirits or evil beings in the earth of course which the heathen worship. The Bible says every knee shall bow = Romans 14:11
King James Version (KJV)
11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
So to me this means everyone will come to acknowledge that the Lord is God even the evil ones.


Joseph's comment on 2013-10-24 21:11:05:

In the original text it means to give up to him, "let go" and the word know is "trust in your heart" or in turn Love God. Remember the song to know know know him is to love love love him?


Ponani Petunia Makhubele's comment on 2013-10-08 00:16:04:

indeed if God was not for us..we would have been cricified..but God in control he brought us to this world with a clear vision of our lives..I fear nothing I remain firm knowing il never ever lack..for God is with me.

Thank you Lord


Geneva Gamble's comment on 2013-09-28 10:03:28:

Love this verse of scripture. This verse is very encouraging in
that God is in control. Our trust and faith is in God and Him
alone, He never fails.
