Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." (Psalm 46:10)
"The word still comes from a Hebrew word meaning to “let go” or “release.” The meaning would be best understood to say “cause yourself to become restrained or to let go.” In other words, we need to come to a place where we are willing to submit ourselves to God and acknowledging that He is in sovereign control."(1). We need to understand that God is the Fountain of power, wisdom, justice, goodness, and truth. Being Still according to Adam Clarke also means that we cease from provocations of the Divine justice; cease from murmuring against the dispensations of his providence; cease from your labor for a season, that ye may deeply reflect on the severity and goodness of God - severity to those who are brought down and destroyed; goodness to you who are raised up and exalted: - cease from sin and rebellion against your God; let that disgrace you no more, that we may no more be brought into distress and desolation.
This worship song Still From the Album Ultimate Worship: Hillsong by Hillsong Live is very inspirational. Yes, we run into a flood; we fight against the tides of life; and we encounter thunders in our lives but God said, "Be Still!"
