This is one of those verses that’s so oft-quoted that we sometimes forget why it’s so oft-quoted. It’s a great answer to worry and fear, something many of us deal with daily.
Be still: Slow down. Stop. Breathe. Do nothing. Release control to God, and recognize He’s the one with the power to help, fix, redeem.
And know: Stir up your faith. Reawaken the Holy Spirit. Remind yourself of exactly who God is and why He’s more than trustworthy to handle your dilemma or problem.
We pray that, whatever you’re going through, you can take a moment to be still and know.
