Be Still and Know That I Am God

“Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). After “Be still” we find “and know”.
There are different ways of knowing. If someone says “Did you know it’s hot in Scotland?” you might say “I know, I saw it on the TV.” You know about it in your head.
You might say “I know, I was in Scotland yesterday.” This is a different kind of knowing: it was your own real-life experience. You felt the heat for yourself.
God’s desire is that we don’t just know in our heads that He is God, but to experience it in our lives, in all the storms and panic and problems, to know.
