Where There Is Stillness, There is God

by | Jan 9, 2024

“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).

Immersing ourselves in the presence of God allows us to acknowledge His sovereignty over our lives and find peace, even in the seemingly chaotic world around us. We find Him in the little things—the scent of chamomile tea on a cold day, the sight of young mothers pushing strollers in the park as we sit on a bench, listening to birds chirping. His creation captivates our senses as the sky at dusk turns from blue to pink, then to orange, and finally to black. What a blessed life we lead to be able to witness such extraordinary, yet ordinarily simple things.

Psalm 46:10 helps us to appreciate stillness, bringing us into a closer relationship with God. At the center of our being, this relationship empowers and energizes our spirits through life’s simple pleasures. There is tranquility and safety in the nearness of God. Carving out quiet moments of stillness lessons anxiety and deepens our faith. Using this time to pray, read the Bible, or just pause to acknowledge His goodness brings us much-needed peace.

Your Call to Action

Step into the stillness and embrace the gift of God’s presence. His love is near, waiting to envelop you, bring peace to your restless spirit, and guide your path. Remember to breathe and allow Him to strengthen and uplift you. The journey is richer and more spiritually fulfilling when we let Him have control.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).

“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing” (Psalm 23:1).

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).


Father God, thank You for the little things. Help us to recognize and appreciate them. Teach us to slow down, embrace the stillness, and trust in You. In Your name, we pray, Amen.
