Be Still and Know That I Am God

“Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). After “and know” we find “that I am God”.
That sounds strange: God wants us to know that He, God, is God. Well, who else could He be?
The point is to get us thinking about what it means to be God. The Hebrew word, ELOHEEM, is plural! Straight away we are reminded that God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit: three persons in one. Straight away, we are reminded just how amazing God is.
The meaning also reminds us about God’s greatness, how mighty He is, higher than all, supreme in all of creation.
