Thank You Father God for Your goodness and loving kindness without limit. We see You made know in Your creation, this most beautiful work of Yours – the sun, the moon, the tress, the flowers all declare the glory of the living God. Through Your cross You redeemed all of us who trust and believe in You. Lord how great You are, and how majestic is Your Name, in Jesus Christ, Amen.




Please read Psalm 46.

“Be still and know that I am God”

Ps 46:10

We know these words so well and we love them; we see them on little cards, on posters on Church walls, Church notice boards, in people’s houses, etc. I have two or three of them in my office. Yet doing this can be difficult because it amounts to allowing God to be God in everything. He is the One who is in control. He is the Sovereign Lord.

In reality it means that we do not worry about things because He is in control of it all. We need to apply this truth to every area of our life. Whatever we are facing this week, next week, next month, Be still and know that He is God. We need to surrender to God on a daily basis. Yes, Jesus is our Lord, but is He Lord of everything? I came across the remainder of the Serenity Prayer recently, let’s make it our daily prayer:

Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardship as a pathway to peace; taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that You [Lord] will make all things right if I surrender to Your will; so that I may be reasonably happy in this life, and supremely happy with You forever in the next, Amen.

Let’s Pray

Heavenly Father, we know that we should be still and know that You are God in all things, each and every moment of every day. But Lord You also know that we struggle to do this, at times we forget, and other times we can be engulfed with anxiety that it seems impossible to do. So Lord we humbly ask You to help us by Your Holy Spirit to ‘Be still and to know that You are God every moment of every day, in and through Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
