DAILY READINGS: 1 Samuel 18:6-19:7; Isaiah 59:1-21; Romans 4:23-5:11

Be still, and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10
Be not still, O God. Psalm 83:1

Over and over, Scripture adjures us to be at rest. Amidst all our circumstances, our sovereign Lord Jesus Christ is on the throne! When I was a teenager I was blessed by the popular Christian phrase, “Let go and let God.” Psalm 46:10 in the NASB reads, “Cease striving and know that I am God.” We can be still because our God is never still. He is always remembering us (Gen. 8:1; Ex. 2:24) and when He does, He acts. “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Rom. 8:28). —Annette Baal

In Jesus I’ve found a sweet rest, from sorrow, from toil, and from care;
In Him I am happy and blest, for He all my burdens doth bear. —L. Riggs
