“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Psalms 46:10 KJV

I believe everyone has their favorite chair. You know, the one that draws you, inviting you to sink into it and enjoy its comforts? I have a chair like that. My Grandmother passed a few months ago, and her oversized burgundy lazy boy needed a new home. I immediately knew that I would be able to find a place for it in my living room. It has quickly become “mama’s chair.”

In studying the above scripture, I discovered that the word “still” means to sink down, relax, withdraw, and to drop. Sounds similar to cozying up in your favorite chair, doesn’t it? I know the emotions I experience when I let go of my worries for a few moments and relax into comfort and rest. The same applies to being still and knowing that He is God.

Letting go isn’t supposed to be a tense, fearful moment of uncertainty, but rather an occasion of understanding and familiarity as you enter into rest, peace, and comfort. Withdrawing from worry and anxiety, and sinking into the calmness of His presence is something we get to experience at any point during our day, and in any season.

It should just be second nature for us to be able to turn away from despair and uneasy feelings, and then lean into His unconditional love and open arms. He is beckoning you closer today, and asking you to resist the chaos and turmoil that worry brings, and to rather sink into His comforts. That is an invitation I never want to reject.
